I lost my computer to Ike when it hit the gulf coast.  I managed to resurrect the hard drive and got all of the TTax program files off of the drive, but, of course, that wasn't enough.  I still don't have the data to import to the current year.

How can I get the 2003-2007 data brought over to the new computer.  I don't necessarily need to run the previous year's returns, just import the information.

Thanks in advance, Rick

If you want access the previous tax files I believe you need to install the corresponding year.  Importing however can be done from previous year and the instructions are in the link below:

Thanks for the help.  Did I mention that the reason for the problem is that I lost my housel and two computers to Ike.  Not looking for sympathy, just understanding of why it has taken so long to reply.  Still haven't tried the suggestion offered, but am pretty certain that all will be useful,

Thanks again, Rick
