just updated from 2017 to 2020 subscription.

wife and I have separate logins to computer. quicken was installed under her login as primary user. when I log in to computer and try to open quicken now, I use her login and password to open quicken. when I go to open the data file she uses like I did on 2017 version, it wants me to convert the data file to 2019 format. Now she has been using 2020 for a week now with no problems w/ data file. why is it asking me to convert it to 2019 format? I feel this is a bug w/ new 2020 subscription.

    There is no data file conversion from Quicken 2017 to Quicken Subscription. The format hasn't changed since 2016. What is the full path to the data file? Can you post a screen shot of the conversion message?
