    Hi. I have Quicken Home and Business 2005. I need to upgrade since
    they will no longer support my product. I'd like to separate out my
    home account from my business onto separate computers and use separate
    software.

    Does anyone know if I can convert the Quicken H&B file to Quicken
    Premier or Quicken Deluxe? Then does anyone know if I can convert
    the business file to a different business product and if so, is
    Quickbooks my only option or can I go to a Peachtree product or
    Microsoft product?


    THANKS!

    You have the option of coverting to Quickbooks but things don't always
    translate properly. I have heard of messes being created as a result.

    I think if you convert the file to Peachtree that it will create opening
    balances only. I don't recall that transactions get transfered.

    If you want to transfer to a new program you would be better off starting a
    new file with 1/1/2008 and set it up properly instead of praying that your
    file will get converted properly.

    Thanks for the information. Do you know if I can go from one Quicken
    product to another, i.e, Q H&B to Q Premier with my personal finances
    or am I going to have a mess there too?

    Yes, you can.

    There will be some changes, such as previous business accounts
    will become asset or liability accounts. And you will lose all
    of the Quicken "business" capabilities. But you should retain
    all of your data.

    You can check it our for yourself: get the Quicken version you
    think you need, convert your data, check it out. If you don't
    like the results, you have 60 days to return Quicken and get
    your money back.
