Want to downgrade, but keep old data set

Last time around I accidentally got Home and Business version, which is way more than I need, and my subscription is due now. I DON'T want to renew at that rate (over $100) as I use almost none of the features. Can I downgrade to a more modest version and still keep my data set that has got years worth of info I still value?

    Yes.  The same data file will just open directly in a lower version - simply without the features of the higher version.

    Except if you have Investments - as the Starter version will not support them...

    Thanks to both people who answered. The replies were helpful. I will go back to Deluxe, which is what I meant to get when I goofed before. No investments to worry about.

    Note that given all the restrictions on the Stater version it is almost never the right version to select.  And given that you can go to a retailer like Staples or Best Buy and get Deluxe for $42 it really shouldn't be much of a decision.  Note if get it from one of these make sure it isn't marked for new users only.
