How do I split my datafile into two files?
I use Quicken to track my own finances, as well as my mother-in-law's. Right now they are all in one file. I have hers marked as separate so her info doesn't show up in my reports and totals. I would like to move her accounts into its own file, so I can run reports on her info too. I know that I can create duplicate files and rename them. For example, original = MASTER, then copy twice and rename to FILE A (mine) and FILE B (hers). Here's my question: If I then delete my account (BANK 1) from FILE B, does this cause any problems with BANK 1 in FILE A? Will Quicken, when I open FILE A, still consider BANK 1 as open and will it still synch properly with express or direct connect as it does now? Does deleting an account in this manner cause any problems on the bank side of the synching process? Is there a better way to accomplish this task? Thanks.
