How can I copy transactions from one Q file to another

I have two quicken files one old and one current. I somehow managed to download March and April data to the old file and not the new one.  NOw I need to copy all of those March and April transactions from the old file to the new.  I can't stand to enter them manually.  I tried to export to QIF file but that is no longer available as an import fature for checking accounts. I tried to copy transactions and paste into the new file but that did not work.  Any suggestions before I spend too much time manually reentering the transactions?


I don't see where you said you tried to download the data to the new fileset after doing so to the old fileset.&nbsp_&nbsp_I would expect you to be able to redownload the same data to multiple Quicken filesets based on what I&nbsp_have read in these forums.&nbsp_ If you tried that and it didn't work, please indicate your financial institution, what type of account is involved (checking, savings, credit card, investment, investment retirement, etc.) and what appraoch you use to download (direct connect through one-step update, web connect through your financial instituitions website, or express web-connect as a amalgamation of those two - from the website through OSU).&nbsp_

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.
