Move Account From One Quicken File to Another

I have 2 Quicken Files with several Brokerage accounts in each. I wish to move some of the accounts from one datafile to the other.     Can someone please give me some pointers or point me to a post that will show me how to do this?    I am an old time User from way back, but I too, will use jump ship one of these days due to Quickens rudely doing away with the old export/import solution to this common problem. It used to be so easy...I hate Intuit for doing this!!!    Anyway, if someone can help I sure would appreciate it.    Thanks in advance.

    You must convert your QIF files with:

    It's $37, but well worth it!

    • You're shilling on a 5 year old post.
    • To say nothing about the lying.

      People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
