    Hello @Paul27,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community with your question.

    We will need some additional information in order to better assist you further.

    Could you please provide which version of Quicken you have currently running?

    Also, could you please clarify what you mean by "separate profiles"? If you are wanting to keep business and personal accounts in separate data files, then please review this support article which provides instructions on how to create a new data file as well as how to alternate between different data files.

    Additionally, being that you are a new user, I would like to inform you that you do have the option to schedule a one-on-one tour with our Quicken 1-2-3 team.

    @Paul27  In short, go to File > New to create a new data file. Every data file is completely separate. Name one file Mom, one file Business and one file Personal -- or whatever would help you keep them straight. (Depending on the nature of your business and what you want to track in Quicken, it may be better to have it in a separate file or it may be better to have in one file with your personal finances.)
