    2 possibilities.  The 1st is preferable:
    1) FILE, Save a copy as ...
    2) Use Win Explorer to change the file name.  THEN, double click on the file to open it in Q.  Thereafter, Q will remember the new file name.

    If you have no data, just start a new data file, File->New Quicken File

    #1 seems to work. Are there any hidden pitfalls to wat h out for now that there are two .QDF files?

    OK, guys, I get the idea. I'm going to try a couple of test runs. I have no data yet, so nothing to lose. Thanks for your help.
