How do I convert a previous primary residence to a rental property in Quicken Windows?

I built a new house and have moved, I'm tracking both properties in Quicken. I have a management company handling the day-to-day business of renting my other property but I would also like to track financials in Quicken Home & Business. Are there instructions on converting a property from a residence to a rental?

    Since the management company is tracking thing like tenants, contracts, etc ... and you're only interested in the financials, I don't see why you need HBR at all for this.
    The current mortgage (presumed) on the rental stays in place, and you can use categories that you set up (with proper tax attributes) to track any other income and expenses.
    Just switch the tax line associated with this property from personal home mortgage interest to Schedule E mortgage interest.
