I have finally decided to upgrade from Quicken 2000. Will my data files be imported into Quicken 2019 seamlessly?

    You've got a bunch of hoops to jump thru to convert a product that is that old.

    You have probably heard of sticker shock, well, prepare yourself for interface shock.  Modern day Quicken doesn't at all like what you are used to seeing/using.

    Do you want to be able to download transactions from your bank etc,?

    If not, you can convert to the 2013 version since you don’t use any online services or download transactions now. Starting in 2014 they instituted an ID password to get into your own data. I’m staying on 2013. 

    You can download 2013 for free (I think it's the Deluxe version) using this how to convert article.  It’s under Converting from Quicken 2004-2009. 

    And FYI - If your Quicken was before 2010 you should have several files making up the data.

    The main data file ends in .QDF.  All Quicken versions prior to QW2010 store your data in a series of files all sharing the same filename but with different extensions like  - .QDF .IDX, .QEL, .QPH  and all 4 of those files were rolled into a single-file .QDF starting in 2010.
