Using the Quicken to QuickBooks Conversion Tool

The Quicken Conversion Tool will assist with converting your Quicken file from an older release of Quicken (2011 and below) to the newer Quicken format which can then be read by QuickBooks 2012 or later.

Detailed instructions

Follow the steps below to upgrade the Quicken file (.QDF ) file to the latest version using the Quicken converter.

There are 2 ways to convert to QuickBooks from Quicken depending on what year of Quicken your file is in and what year of QuickBooks you are converting to.

  • Method 1: Use the Quicken Converter Tool if your Quicken file is from 2011 or earlier.
  • Method 2: Convert within QuickBooks if your Quicken file is the same year as QuickBooks 2012 or later.  Use this method if you have:
    • Quicken 2012 file and want to go to QuickBooks 2012
    • Quicken 2013 file and want to go to QuickBooks 2013
    • Quicken 2014 file and want to go to QuickBooks 2014
    • Quicken 2015 file and want to go to QuickBooks 2015

For the best conversion experience, make sure you are on the latest release.  Check out or download the latest QuickBooks version or update release.
