I think it's sometime between 1978 and 1982. How do I pin it down?

    Unless you back entered all your transactions, neither date is correct as Quicken did not release their first version until 1983 for PC and Apple II.

    Well, one place would be to look in Q for your oldest transaction. OR, if you've input historical transactions for an account, look for the oldest clustered/grouped transactions.
    You might also try logging into your Q account and seeing if the info is there.

    I can't live without it. It used to take me over a week to do my income taxes, now less than 1 hour! I used to have different piles of receipts on the dining room table, then total each pile and enter it into the proper place on the 1040.
