Are there any "gotchas" when upgrading from QMac 2017 to QMac 2020

I am going to be upgrading my Quicken 2017 Deluxe version to 2020. Does anyone know about any issues or things to prepare for when downloading the new version? Will the new version recognize the old version and convert the data over?

    I have never heard of any "gotchas" or required pre-flight tasks. The upgrade is relatively straightforward and automatic.

    Run 2020, and it will update your file. Your old file/version of 2017 will remain untouched if you wish to go back to look at things in the older version.

    I've had lots of problems. This process is not seamless or reliable. See all of my posts from today.

    @Scott Rose I know some people have had trouble with QM2007 to new QMac... but this thread is for 2017 to 2020.
