Is there a way to transfer account list from a different Quicken file? Or a way to transfer specific accounts on another account list?

    You can export the account list in a QIF file and import the QIF file into another Quicken data file.

    Thanks Rocket, Now let's say my new quicken file already has half the accounts from my old quicken file.

    Will exporting my old account list create duplicate accounts?

    I doubt it, but with Quicken, anything is possible. I just tried it and did not get duplicates.
    You can try it in a copy of your file and see what it does.
    You can also edit the QIF file, which is a text file, and remove anything you don't want imported.

    Is there a way to transfer the attachments from certain transaction during the transfer?

    There's no known way to transfer attachments. 
    Which is a glaring shortfall of the way that Q handles them and the reason why attachments aren't recommended by the SuperUsers, who recommend using an non-Q storage program.
