Always?!

So far it appears that Intuit has retained the ability for
Quicken to export to files that can be processed by Excel, and
probably other spreadsheets.

There is no way anyone here can guarantee what Intuit will do in
the future.

Hello - You can save a file to an Excel file.
1 From the file menu select Print Summary item
2 select the Tab-delimited Disk File entry
3 In the title box type "File Name.xls" Remember where the folder is
located. Quicken will save the file as a text file.
4 Just double click the new file and you should activate MS-Excel.

Regards
Jack

2.) You can also select "123 (.PRN) Disk File
3.) You do not need to supply an "xls" extension, it does not
help, nor change the behavior of Excel

The only difference between a "tab-delimited" file and a "123
(.PRN)" file is the 123 file is comma delimited. Both import
into Excel with no problem and the only difference you can see
during the process is the value in the "Delimiters" section of
the "Text Import Wizard".

(Ok, if you give the file an "xls" extension, you can click it
and Excel will open it, which it won't do for "txt" files, but
for me, the fact that the file is not in "xls" format makes this
a poor choice: I like to know that my "xls" files are Excel
spreadsheet files, not wonder if maybe they are delimited files.
Once you have gone through the Text Import Wizard, you can save
the resulting file as an xls file and have a true spreadsheet.)
