Would love an API to run reports without manual interaction

It's sad that Quicken doesn't have an API at all. Other products like Word or Excel are fully automatable through COM, .NET, etc.
I would love even the simplest of APIs that allowed an external program to trigger a previously-stored report, returning the data via clipboard, string, or saving to a textfile.
I have external metrics I currently create from several Quicken reports and it's a real drag to run each report, copy the contents, paste into another format, etc. It'd be a few lines of code if only Quicken had an API.
Why doesn't it have an automation API? I mean, there's no reason to expose the file format or get Quicken out of the way. I'm just asking for a way to interact with it reliably without my own hands on the mouse and keyboard.

  • And what about being able to access Quicken data through Power BI? That would be nice also. Is there a way to do that?
