How do I transfer from iBank (Mac) to QE

I used Quicken since 1994. When QE came out, I was not able to write checks. iBank enabled me to write checks but I find it clunky and slow. Now QE 1.5 enables writing of checks and I want to transfer my accounts back to QE. I can't seem to export my iBank account to QE. What am I missing?

iBank only exports .qif files. QEM only imports converted .qdfm files so there is no solution for your problem.

If you still have your original Quicken Data.qdfm file you can start from there.

After some deep thought I realized there is a solution.

1. Export your iBank file to .qif

2. Import the .qif file into Quicken Mac

3. Convert the .qdfm file to .qdfx using Quicken File Exchange Utility

4. Import the .qdfx file into QEM

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.
