Deluxe 2011 and H&B 2015 merger to newest Quicken version

I see a lot of people have the same question that I have. And as I cannot find out for sure what I need to do, I thought I would ask the community. I have two versions running on two computers. I am buying a new laptop and want to buy the newest version of Quicken and import my old data. Obviously they would not be merged together into one file. So two questions: 1) Can I have two separate Quicken files? Currently I can 'open Quicken file" to open multiple files. 2) Does the current version of Quicken support Deluxe 2011 and Home & Business 2015? These are the two versions I am currently running on my two computers. It looks like Quicken is now subscription so that should make staying up to date easier, although a bit more expensive. Thanks for any help!

    Note that if you want the Home & Business features you of course have to pay for that one when you go to the newest version of Quicken.  On the other hand the Deluxe/Home & Business data files are compatible so you can load either into either the Deluxe or Home & Business edition and have the features at that level.

    Yes you can have many separate data files.  Just open them in the new version.  But first make sure they have different file names.

    Awesome! Thank you :)

    I just order my new laptop and will need to decide which version I will run. Since one is for a business and the other for myself, I think it makes sense to go with the H&B version. The business is picking up the tab anyway!
