How do I open an earlier-date backup of an account without over-riding the current account

I have been recording the total weekly balance of a particular account on a separate spread sheet. I now find that the weekly balance, as recorded in Quicken, is much higher than the balance I have recorded on the spread-sheet. Because the spread-sheet only shows the total for the account and not the sums for the individual files within it, I'm not able to work out where the discrepancy has arisen (as a first step to understanding why this apparent error has occurred. Consequently, I want to restore from the backup the version of this file (the total of which is recorded on the spread-sheet) for a particular date so that I can compare it to the current record in Quicken, to understand where the difference between them (past and present) has arisen.

    What does this have to do with your chosen topic area, "Quicken on the Web"?
    BECAUSE the web file is NOT a backup. It contains only a small subset of your Q data file.
    SO, do you have legitimate backups, that hopefully you've saved to a USB drive of other external media?

  • I couldn't find a suitable topic category. Can you suggest one. My backups are all on a separate file on my computer. I'm not a sophisticated user of the Quicken community and I find the whole process more than daunting.
