Thanks. Just for your amusement, here's the story:
Ten years ago I looked at Quicken
and decided I could do better. So I wrote my own "check register" set of programs in DOS basic. It produces CSV files for inter-program communication and spreadsheet display. I have used it for ten years now and have saved all transactions.
My wife, Julia, is infatuated with Quicken
, and uses Quicken
vintage 2008 or so, and would like to do household budget analysis, and I refuse to downgrade to Quicken
of any vintage.
So I approached my son-in-law who formerly worked for Intuit on the Quicken
team. Mike Klieman found CSV2QFX
and suggested it might solve my problem. I downloaded CSV2QFX
and encountered two hurdles:
a. could not find a manual or help to map my csv fields to Quicken
b. discovered that Julia's '08 Quicken
wanted QIF input. Apparently Intuit changed from QIF to QFX circa 2008.
When I try to get info from Intuit on how to extract transactions from Quicken
in a file format I can use "my way," I get "proprietary" and "trade secret" BS.
So, Julia and I will go our separate ways on financial analysis.
Again, thanks for your offer to help, but I see no solution to the dilemma.
