    Thanks again, I was able to get around the issue by doing a fresh install of quicken on a different machine and then importing the quicken data. The option was available then and I export to .QIF. Appreciate the assistance.

    I just tested this in both subscription Premier and Starter Editions, QIF export is available in both, so it should be available in Deluxe.

    I would suggest un-installing and re-installing Quicken following the instructions in this article: QCleanUI - Clean Uninstall

    -splasher  using Q since 1996 -  Subscription  -  Win10
    -also older versions as needed for testing

    Thanks, I gave that a try but unfortunately the option is still disabled once I reinstall.

    Just for the record:
    What version, edition level and release of Quicken are you using?  Click Help / About Quicken (Mac: Quicken / About Quicken) to get this information.
