Home Quicken for Windows File Conversion and Backup (Windows)

Where is "File import" for Quicken Transfer Format QXF files?

GlennQuserGlennQuser Member ✭✭
My sister uses the Mac version and she saved her data file as a .qxf file. I need to open it in my Windows version. The Win Quicken help says to create a new data file, then choose File menu > File Import > select file. I created a new file but in the File drop down, there is no option for File Import. How can I import this qxf file. The Win version only looks for qdf qdb qdt files to open.

    I think somebody messed up the instructions that you are reading.
    There's a separate selection for QXF files in the File / File Import menu.
    Open your new, empty QDF file in Quicken, then select the QXF file import menu item.

    Note that Quicken Starter doesn't have the Quicken Transfer Format (QXF) import (or export), if you have Starter version you will need to update to Deluxe or above.

    Are there also limitations on what is actually exported
    and can therefore be imported ?
    Thinking about different types of accounts
    and other specific elements of Quicken.

    Yes, Quicken Windows QXF import will not import investment accounts/transactions.

    Also saved reports, budget, ... won't transfer (not included in the QFX file).
