Windows to Mac

I presently use Quicken Cash Manager 2012 on Windows 10 desktop. I am buying a imac and want to transfer the data etc from the QDF files to the Quicken starter program on the imac. How do I do this because I really don't want to have to re-enter all the categories etc? Can anyone help me?

    I have never been able to convert windows quicken files into Mac. Always had to start fresh which is really annoying.

    Many, many thousands of Quicken Windows users have made the conversion to Quicken Mac. Some have had very smooth file imports. Some have hit some bumps they were able to work out. Some found that some types of data doesn't make the transition from Windows to Mac (such as file attachments, or planner data). I'm sure there are a few folks who have been entirely unable to convert, but from everything I've seen here over the years, that's likely a very tiny minority.
