Importing a .mif file into QuickBooks

I have a client that has been running a program called MoneyCounts V.9.  They have 15 years of data in it.  The software is basically obsolete and it's time to move on.  I'm trying to figure out if I can import this data into QB.  The MoneyCounts data file is a .dat (or at least that's what I see during a backup) file.  There is an export option that lets me export everything into a .mif file.  I also found in the backup folder (when I do a backup) a folder called "conversion backup" which has a bunch of .mdf files and mdx files.  

Anyone have any idea if I can import into QB and if so which of the above file(s) should I be working with?

Thank You.

You need to export the data into an XLS file. QuickBooks does not have a native import for this.

Then, QuickBooks can import customer and vendor lists but you might be better to look at the QuickBooks Marketplace for a third party tool that imports transactions from Excel files.

Ok thanks for the info.  As it turns out, I was able to copy the Money Counts folder located in the programs folder and move it to the new pc.  The exe file opened the program on the new pc.  Good old dos based program I guess.

Thank You.
