Can I import all my data from Quickbooks windows into Moneydance?

    I'm a fellow user.

    To migrate between different products you need a common format for transactions. Typically in the Personal finance world that means QIF files, although you can get some data from CSV files into basic bank type accounts in Moneydance.

    As I understand it Quickbooks really locks you in as I do not believe it has a QIF output option or even simple CSV type options. I'm not aware of anyone working out how to get data from Quickbooks in an efficient manner.

    I actually meant Quicken windows. Another question: is there any
    additional cost to download bank data into the app daily?

    From Quicken the general answer is yes, there are articles in the knowledge base about migrating:

    Moneydance certainly does not charge you but I understand that some banks do charge for the service.
