You can convert to QuickBooks directly from Quicken or Quicken Home and Business. Older versions of Quicken may require a preliminary conversion before converting to QuickBooks. See a list of supported versions.
We recommend using the Quicken Converter utility.
The conversion copies your Quicken data to a new QuickBooks company file, leaving
your original Quicken data file unchanged for continued use. After converting
your Quicken file, you will have two sets of data: your original, unchanged
Quicken file and your new QuickBooks company file.
Important: Please update your Quicken file to Quicken 2012 before using the Quicken Converter utility.
