    Hi -
    I downloaded Q 2020 from Amazon, and received an activation code. Trying to install, Quicken says I must delete my 2017 version first, that only one version at a time can be on the computer (Windows 7). How do I then transfer all my accounts, reports and data to the 2020 version? Is it automatic?

    Your data isn't located in the program.  It's in your Q data file, which isn't touched by an uninstall.
    IF you want extra comfort, you can always backup your data, using QW2017, before you install QW2020.
