How can I import my Money 2000 ITA data to any FREE version that works with Windows 10? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I bought a new PC with Windows 10, and I have to transfer my Money data into it.

    My old PC is a Windows XP, with Microsoft Money 2000 installed, Italian version.

    Unfortunately we have lost the installation CD so we need to switch to a newer, free version of Money with the new PC.I read that the latest version, Money Plus Sunset, is only in English though, and cannot read any non-US versions backup files.

    How can I export my Money 2000 ITA data so that I can read the file with a newer Money version?

    Which Money version do you suggest me to search and install?

    Thank you very much!!!

  • You can do QIF export, and import into a newer version, including Sunset.

    If you want to do the QIF export/import, I would follow the steps
    in http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;178830
    except in the first step 4, I would suggest this: start the name of
    the QIF file for the investment accounts with an number,
    and start the name of QIF files for the cash accounts associated
    with the investments with a letter.  Thus you might have
    1BrownInvestment.qif and BrownInvestmentCash.qif.  This would cause
    the investment account to be processed prior to the associated cash
    account.  When the BrownInvestment got created, you would specify
    that you want to track the cash transactions.  Then specify that
    the cash transactions account for BrownInvestment was where the
    BrownInvestmentCash.qif transactions get sent.

    Then File->Import ALL AT ONCE using Ctrl+<click> to select files.
    Specify "New or Recovered" account when asked.

    Of course you will use a different filename for the new file, and
    you will have both versions to choose from when done.  I would also
    set up the backups to make sure they are using different names.

  • A couple of things in addition to Cal's excellent instructions:

    You can download US Money Sunset from this link:

    and you should do the mny0b99.dll replacement as described here:

    Post back if you need help with any of this.

  • Also, I think it would be important to set up the currency for Money before importing.

    Tools->Settings->ProgramSettings->UpdateCurrencies, set the Base Currency to Euro. In the
    list, make sure the entry for Euro the BASE in
    the ExchangeRate column.

    Portfolio->Change portfolio settings and be sure Portfolio Currency is shown as "Euro".

    Start->Control Panel->RegionalSettings (or Regional and Language Options)

    For the Account Settings for each account, maybe make sure the Currency is listed as "Euro".

    I have not dealt with the currency thing in Money myself.

    As you do your actions, take notes. Post back with improvements in the description or process that you find.

  • Alternatively you could try to buy a second hand copy of Microsoft Money 2000 Italian on eBay or similar, and install that.

    Money 2000 International English certainly works on 64 bit Windows 10 Professional.
