Can you have two different data files on the sam computer with different quicken id's?

I want to move a data file with one quicken id from one mac to another that already has a data file with a different id. Do I have to change the quicken id on the data file that is moving to another mac to match the one is already on that mac?

    Hello @rayrol,

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

    No, you don't have to change the Quicken ID on the data file to do this. However, if you don't, you will need to sign out of Quicken and then sign back in with the other ID. Seems that it would be easier to just allow it to change the owner of the file when it asks. Unless you have a reason for doing it this way. In that case, the sign-out and sign-in option works too!

    I do hope this answered your question! Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
