I have not used money for many years; however, you may be able to import some information by exporting the data from MS money into an IIF file.  I think money will only export into qif files; therefore, you would then need to change that to a IIf file

You could try the following to convert the QIF file and try importing into a test file.

Yeah... Looked into that idea but it's a PITA becase MS only exports accounts one at a time and i really fear data loss. Thank you for input. I do have "QuickBooks convertor" but it does not seem to work. I guess I will bit the bullet and call them to see what's up

if you plan your conversion, you should not have any data loss,   You have your records in MS money; therefore, try importing into a test file and see if you get the same answer.

Good luck

I called the QuickBooks support team. The only way they said to transfer .mny files into quick books is to send a copy of the file TO THEM and that was the only way it could be done. It could 2 weeks. Itold them that this was unaccptable since they offer so many conversions for every other peach of software, I felt this program should do it for me. They did not budge, and really did not offer anything else. So I will close last year in MS Money and go forward as of 1/1/2009 with quick books. Thanks for everyone's input!
