convert to QIF compatible with Quicken 98

Our Background as follows:

I Started out running Quicken for DOS. We bought every "upgrade" until Quicken Deluxe 2012, then realized we were going backwards as Quicken was going to hell. We Settled on Quicken 98 deluxe and still use it, We import data from bank accounts and credit card transactions in the old QIF format.it works fine if you can get the data source in that format

As you know Quicken has changed their QIF format several times for no apparent purpose other than to force people to "upgrade". a strategy that never works in the long run. I like the original QIF format and we have standardized on Quicken 98 deluxe. The rest of Quicken is junk.

Now here come the banks, offering PDF files (sort of ) and Quicken QFX formats. The same information, just incompatible among our various workstations

Our original work around was to first scan, OCR and reformat pdf files. Later when Quicken came out with another version of incompatible Qif files, We built a Converter using AWK.. Now Visa appears to have introduced another "improved" format, VCF

I dot give a rats about the new, improved formats and their alleged efficiency. We dot write software for fun or profit. We buy what we need, pay cash and dot pass it around.

I am happy to buy software (hopefully yours) that converts the jumble of credit card and bank statement formats into an old fashioned QIF format that Quicken 98 can read and import into my registers.

Best Regards,
John

Hello John,

Thank you for your feedback and all details!

Your choice for QFX2QIF is right. For Quicken 98, select "MS Money or others" for the target file before saving the QIF file. You don't have to change anything on the Account Mapping tab.

If you have some data in CSV/Excel format, use CSV2QIF at http://www.propersoft.net/CSV2QIF
Again, please select "Ms Money or others" for the target file
