hi

over a period of testing and doing other things i have created multiple MS
Money files mostly with the same accounts and same transactions, the main
difference is the transactions that are available in those files, the oldest
file has the oldest transactions and newest one has all the new transactions
but both contain some common

so i want to merge all of them into one so that i can get all transactions
from the begining till now. what is the best method to do this.

thanks

There is no good method. The only method, and not a good one, is File|Export
of individual accounts to .QIF format and then File|Import of the same
accounts. If Transfers are involved, special precautions must be taken. This
won't work for Loan Accounts. Details of Payees, Accounts, Categories, etc.,
do not migrate this way. Duplicate Account names will cause real problems.
And so on.

The method is to File->Export to QIF files. The differences are in
how to eliminate/reduced overlap. One way is to use a text editor to
delete the transactions from an unwanted date range. The QIF files
are normally in chronological order.

If there are transfers involved, import all of the massaged QIF
files all at once.

Keep lots of backups.
