  • Question

  • Hi all

    I received a money file that created as I think with ms money 2008 but I only have ms money 2005 I don't want to upgrade to a newer version since I also my work with another people who may have 2005 version. Is there any way to convert or open the file with money 2005 ?

    like in Microsoft office when installing "office conversion tool" to open a 2007 doc with office 2003

  • Simple answer is no.

    However you could install Money Plus Deluxe Sunset onto a different computer, and create a set of QIF files. Then create a new Money 2005 file  on the first computer, and import those QIF files all at once.

    If you want to do the QIF export/import, I would follow the steps
    in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/178465
    except in the first step 4, I would suggest this: Name the files
    from the cash accounts associated with investment accounts
    alphabetically higher/later than the files from investment
    accounts.  Starting the name of the QIF file for the investment
    accounts with a zero (0) would be one way to accomplish this.
    Then File->Import ALL AT ONCE using Ctrl+<click> to select files.
    Specify "New or Recovered" account when asked.


    There are things that will not come across, but you will have a clean file.

  • Money Plus Sunset can only read US and Canadian files. Also, it does no direct online access, so somebody with a working Money 2007, for example, would probably not want to go to Money Plus Sunset.
