    Can you reverse the patch R7 as this is the US Version and cannot convert the
    files on the UK Version which I have.Please advise

  2. Generally speaking, patches can't be reversered or removed once applied. It's
    also possible that the data file formats were modified as a result of the patch,
    so going back to an older version of the software without also rolling back to
    an older version of the data is not a good idea.

    I'm not sure I understand your country specific issue(s).

    The way to "reverse" a patch, is to uninstall Quicken; then reinstall
    Quicken while preventing Quicken from automatically updating to the current
    patch (prevent Quicken from getting internet access during the install). For
    many U.S. versions, you can apply virtually any patch (Release) to the basic
    out-of-the-box Quicken by downloading the desired patch file from:
    http://www.quicknperlwiz.com/quickenpatches.html
    and running the downloaded patch file while Quicken is not running.
    ["Mondo" patches are intended to correct some problems that regular patches
    do not correct. I think that in most cases, the regular patch should
    suffice.]

    If you have manually applied a U.S. patch to a non-U.S. version of Quicken,
    you probably don't need to worry about preventing the update process during
    the re-install - presumably you would just want to revert to the most
    current Release of your non-U.S. version, so you could allow the update
    during the install.

    If your intention was to have a U.S. version convert your data from a
    non-U.S. version; you don't need to do anything ... Quicken can't convert
    data from one country version to another. There would be no value in
    reverting to an earlier release of Q2012 U.S.

    If you want to convert UK data to US data, the only two ways I know are: QIF
    files (mucho work, and not for the faint hearted). Or get the free final
    version of MS Money, use that to convert the Quicken UK data to Money, then
    convert the Money data to Quicken US (I think you need at least the Q2010
    version of Quicken for that).

    [For the future: I believe you should always download every patch file for
    every Quicken version you own. Intuit does not keep patch files around
    forever ... and you never know when you will need to reinstall Quicken.]
