How do I convert a QXF file to be used in QuickBooks?

I need to convert a Quicken qxf file to a file that can be opened in QuickBooks Pro 2011... how do I do this?

My client has sent me a Quicken file with the extension qxf... I need to open it in QuickBooks pro 2011... How do I do this?
    Quicken data can be converted to QuickBooks using the data converter built into the QuickBooks software. Quicken to QuickBooks data conversion is a one-way conversion. It is not possible to convert QuickBooks data to Quicken. Once a QuickBooks conversion has been performed on your Quicken data, the data can no longer be opened in Quicken. For this reason you should make a backup of your Quicken data prior to any conversion or perform the conversion on a copy of your Quicken data.

    Convert Quicken for Windows into QuickBooks……

    • I have followed the steps outlined in the above instructions more than a dozen times and they simply do not work.  The process creates a .qxf file that CANNOT be imported into QuickBooks.  No file folder is created on the desktop (or anywhere else) with the proper file located within.  I have been trying to convert data from Quicken 2013 (Windows) to QuickBooks Pro 2014 (Windows) on a computer using Windows 8.  I'm off to throw my brand new copy of QuickBooks into the nearest river.
    I doubt that you can open that file in Quickbooks. It's intended for exchanging data between Quicken (Windows and Mac) files.

    If you can use the file in Quickbooks, I would think it would need to be "imported" rather than "opened".

    Otherwise you'd need to "import" into a version of Quicken for Windows that was Q2012 or later - then convert the Quicken (.QDF) file to Quickbooks. {I can't tell you how Quicken for the Mac would fit in the picture.]

    If none of the above work,  have your client send you a copy of their .QDF file and have Quickbooks convert that.
