    Quicken 5 as in the version released around 1994, or version 2005 released in 2004?

    If the former, unless you have a lot of old Macs and older versions of Quicken on hand, I wouldn't even bother.

    If truly Quicken 5, WOW that is old.

    Actually, all you would theoretically need is QM2007 pre-LC version, that is v16.0.x or older, as it is supposed to be able to read even as far back as v1, but NOT the LC version, v16.1.x or newer. And it can run on Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) or older (as old as Tiger 10.4.6). Then QM2019 would be able to read that file directly.

    That said, even going from 2002 to 2007 I needed 2005 as an intermediary because it did not like my file directly. So YMMV.

    The bigger issue might be to actually get hold of a copy. eBay might still work.
