I need to convert from Quicken 2010 to QuickBooks Premier 2019 desktop application . I installed the Quicken 2019 Converter to match the QuickBooks 2019 year, converted the Quicken QDF file successfully to a QFX file, then when QB 2019 tries to convert the resulting new QDF file, it gets to 6% and fails. I have used two different computers to try to do this conversion, and they always fail at 6% progress.
Is there a way in Quicken to create a clean file, then create a QFX from that, then try the QB conversion?
I don't know where to check for WHY it fails at the same spot each time. I get "QuickBooks has stopped working" error from Windows 7 or Windows 10.
I posted this question in the QB community as well.
It is possible your file is corrupted. You may try convert and open it on Quicken 2019 to verify prior converting it later on QuickBooks 2019. Another option, you may consider purchasing a 3d party conversion service. PM me for details
Converting your Quicken file to QuickBooks depends on the Quicken version you're using.
Here are some points to ponder:
You only need to use the Quicken Converter if you are migrating from a Quicken version that is NOT a parallel version of your QuickBooks Desktop (e.g., Quicken 2016 to QuickBooks Pro, Premier, or Enterprise 2019).
You can skip using the Quicken Converter and convert directly to QuickBooks using the Conversion Utility if you have a version of Quicken that is a parallel version of QuickBooks Desktop (e.g., Quicken 2019 to QuickBooks Pro, Premier, or Enterprise 2019).
To convert your Quicken file using the Conversion Utility in QBDT:
Go to the File menu.
Select From Quicken.
Click the Quicken file (.QDF) that you want to convert.
The Conversion Utility will guide you through the rest of the conversion.
The client has Quicken Deluxe 2010 and we just installed QB Premier 2019 a couple days ago, and that is why I have been using the downloaded 2019 conversion tool, per that same article you mentioned. It does not! I just got done copying their file to my computer, opening it in Quicken 2019, making a backup and an export, then uploading the file opened in Quicken 2019, the export file, and the backup from Quicken 2019, back to the client's computer. I am about to try the conversion directly from QB Premier 2019 right now.
