Money 2005..archived data recovery RRS feed

  • Question

  • Some time ago I was running short on disc space so I archived approx 5 years of Money data....with a new laptop I would now like to recover that data....I am having trouble finding it....what extention would the archived file have and am I able to restore the archived data and include it with data generated since the archive?

    Regards

  • By default it would be called Archive.mny and by default it would have been created in the same folder as your active money file.
    Re-importing might be less simple. I guess you could export the content of the Archive to a QIF file, then re-open the current file (better still a copy of the current file) and import the QIF?
    Frankly I would leave them separate.

  • Thank you Graham, I guess there is really no need for me to re-import the data...I will be happy just to view it on occasion for reference purposes...regards.
