Can I export data from Quicken 2017 for Mac desktop to Quickbooks Mac 2019 desktop

Since Quicken no longer has a desktop version for MAC, I'm switching to Quickbooks 2019 for MAC and I'm trying to figure out if the data can be easily moved.

Can I export data from Quicken 2017 for Mac desktop to Quickbooks Mac 2019 desktop

I'm glad to see your post again, dawnpizzo.

 

We can perform a few steps to completely convert or export your Quicken 2017 for Mac data to QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) for Mac 2019.

 

Since direct conversion from Quicken Mac to QBDT for Mac isn't possible, you'll want to convert your Quicken data to QuickBooks Desktop for Windows in the meantime. 

 

There are two ways to achieve this. You can convert directly to QBDT Windows or use the Quicken converter to upgrade your file. For the detailed instructions, you can check out this article: Convert Quicken data to QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Once your company file is ready, you're now able to convert this file to QBDT for Mac. Before doing so, make sure to update you QuickBooks for Desktop to the latest release. Then, follow the steps below:

 

  1. Go to the File menu, then select Utilities.
  2. Select Copy Company File for QuickBooks Mac.
  3. If you see "It looks like ‘QuickBooks for Windows’ might be a better fit for your company," you may want to consider staying in QuickBooks for Windows. If you're sure you want to continue, select Yes.
  4. Go to the folder you want to save the file in. Name the file, and select Save. Make sure you don't add special characters in the file name.
  5. Move the file to your Mac by using any storage device such as DVD, flash drive, etc.
  6. Restore the file in your QuickBooks for Mac.

Learn more about the whole conversion process from QBDT for Windows to Mac through this article: Convert a QuickBooks for Windows file to QuickBooks for Mac.

 

Let me know if you have follow-ups. I'll be here to help you some more. Have a great day ahead!

@dawnpizzo ,

If you couldn't find any QuickBooks 2017 and 2019 (Windows) license to convert your Quicken license, call and ask Intuit to convert it directly to QuickBooks 2019 for Mac. Otherwise, consider purchasing a 3rd party conversion service.

Quicken is still made for the Mac, just not by Intuit. You can find it on Amazon.  Unless I missed something recent....

  2. Choose File > Export > Quicken Windows Transfer File (QXF)....
  3. Save the.QFX file to media that will allow you to move it to your PC, such as a thumb drive or CD/DVD.
  4. Move the media (thumb drive or CD/DVD) to your computer running Windows.
  5. Open Quicken for Windows.
  6. Choose File > New Quicken File.
  7. Select New Quicken File, click OK.
