Convert 2008 to 2014?

I am currently using Quicken Deluxe 2008, and am considering updating to Quicken 2014.  What I'm wondering is if Q2014 can convert my files from Q2008.  
  • I am still having problems converting my 2008 Quicken Deluxe data files to 2014 Quicken Deluxe.  I validated and renamed my data files as suggested and still having problems.  What other solutions are there to convert my files?
  • The with istructions for converting data incomplete and I cannot expand it
  • I cannot read all the instructions for converting
  • I have down loaded 2014  Home & Business fro the 2008 version with update. The convert data screen is  only about 25% of the whole and cannot be expanded to work with.

Yes, it can convert any file from 2004 forward.  Before you do that I suggest you run a Validate & Repair on your current file and make a backup of it.  Also, if you have a file password that is longer than 8 characters you might want to change it to 8 characters or less "just to be sure".
  • Thank you.  What is a Validate & Repair, and where would I find it?
  • In the file menu.  You select File -> File Operations -> Validate & Repair (at least this is how it is in 2014, in 2008 it might be slightly different but it will be within the file menu).
  • Thank you again!  2008 has Validate (no Repair).  I'm guessing that if it needs to do any repair, it would be a part of the Validate process.  Thanks for your help!
  • Yes, it should be part of the process.  

    You're welcome.  Good luck!
  • Thanks. Sounds like I might need that "luck"!  Sounds like 2014 can be buggy.
  • I think much of it depends on your data and the features you use.  For me it works fine, especially since R5 came out.

    Since the original poster appears to have gotten a satisfactory answer, you don't have the same problem. You need to start your own discussion.
