transfer data from Quicken 2004 for Mac to Quicken Essentials?

I cannot find anywhere that will answer which versions upgrade to to which other versions. Do I need to buy 2006 or 07 to transfer from 04, or is it not possible? I also need to know which ones can import from NeatReceipts so I can finally merge all my money stuff. Q Essentials can't.


The converter in QE is basically the same code from 2007-you can upgrade directly. The official stance was 2005 and newer, but many people have successfully brought in MUCH older versions.

I don't know about 2007, but I know Neat Receipts does not work with QE.

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.
