Backward compatibility problem

I received Quick for business and rental as a gift and converted to that version. I now no longer have either a business or a rental, and would prefer a less expense version of the product, but I am told that my database is not backward compatible. Any ideas on how I can move my data into lesser and much less expensive version of Quicken

    You can go to a lower version.  When you renew just buy Deluxe or Premier.  Or do you want to go back to your older year?  What did you have before?  You might be able to go back to it.  The new subscription versions can go back a couple years.  And the version doesn't matter unless you had the Starter Edition.  

    I'm staying on Quicken 2013 Premier for Windows.

    Exactly what version of Quicken do you have?  (Help -> About Quicken)
    Who/What told you that it isn't compatible?

    There isn't any problem with loading a higher edition into a lower one.
    The only thing that happens is that the higher edition features are turned off.
    I wouldn't go below the Deluxe edition just because the Starter edition is so defeatured, but in fact there is only one data format and one program, it just the feature level that is controlled by the licensing of the different editions.
