upgrading from Quicken 98, when I loaded data onto Quicken 99 as an intermediate step, the data was compromised.

I am trying to upgrade from Quicken 98 to the most recent version. I was told to upgrade to Quicken 99, then to Quicken 2004 and finally to Quicken 2012. When I uploaded the trial version of 99 and loaded my data from 98, it contained duplicate transactions. I was able to eliminate the duplicates, but when I added data and backed up, the backup was even more compromised with duplicates and missing deposits.


The only thing I could suggest is try to validate in Quicken 98, and then try the conversion again.

Well you might also be able to export in QIF format and then import that into Quicken 99.

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.
