    QMTF was designed strictly to be able to export from modern QMac back to QM2007. It was designed when QEM was around, when there were no investment accounts other than summary totals. IIRC, I do not believe it has been updated since then to include investments. Since QM2007 does not support attachments, it does not include them.

    QMTF is not to be confused with QXF, which is designed to transfer files between QMac and QWin, or even into another copy of QMac. QXF also was designed at the time of QEM but it has been updated to include investment accounts but QWin was never updated to import those investment accounts in the QXF file yet QMac will.

    Banking and investment accounts, yes; I'm not certain about manual asset and liability accounts, but I believe so. Any attachments aren't exported. (Clarifying that this is with a QXF file, not QMTF.)

    What are you trying to do? Import back into a new Quicken Mac file? That works. Import into Quicken Windows? Investment accounts won't make it.
