See below which format your Quicken imports and choose a converter to convert your files to a Quicken importable format. In case your Quicken imports QIF and QFX files, either format has issues and advantages. The same applies to QFX and CSV Mint files.

Which file formats does Quicken for Windows import?

  • Quicken for 2018+ for Windows imports QFX, QIF files, and QIF files are 'officially' supported by Quicken.

  • Quicken for 2017 or earlier for Windows imports QIF files only. QIF files have to be created correctly to be imported.

Which file formats does Quicken for Mac import?

  • Quicken for Mac 2018+ imports QFX files, QIF files, and CSV Mint files (QIF and CSV Mint files are importable into a new account, but easily moved to another account)

  • Quicken for Mac 2017 and earlier imports CSV Mint files only (into a new account, easily moved to another account)

  • Quicken Essentials for Mac import QFX and OFX files

  • Quicken for Mac 2007 imports QIF files (some users claim QFX files are importable as well, you can try QFX format with the trial and check if it works for your copy of Quicken

What are the main differences between QIF and QFX and CSV Mint import into Quicken?

  • QIF format supports categories (and subcategories) and tags, and QFX does not (Quicken offers the renaming rules feature to assign the category during import

  • CSV Mint supports categories and supported on Mac only and imports into a new account only (transactions can be moved easily to another account after import)

  • QIF formats for Quicken, Microsoft Money, and other software are different by their structure. ProperSoft converters allow you to create the different QIF variants by selecting the QIF target value.

  • QIF import into Quicken is not “officially supported” by Quicken support. Regardless of the support, QIF files import quite well for all account types. Simply follow the instructions provided on the converter help page, and your data will be imported.

  • QFX format creates an “online services link” to account ID values provided on the QFX files. Make sure to enter different account IDs when converting QFX files for different accounts.

  • QFX files stop importing once your Quicken version becomes three years old. You have to either buy the upgrade or start using QIF format.

Overall, for Quicken for Windows 2018+, the QIF format is somewhat easier to import than QFX. QFX format is easier if you do not need categories during import.

  • QFX format can be imported by Quicken for Windows (up to three years old) and Quicken for Mac

  • QIF format can be imported by older Quicken for Windows.

QIF format

What is the advantage of using QIF files over QFX files? It allows categories and, unlike with QFX files, Quicken does not require “online call home” during the import. You do not need to have Internet connection active and a firewall enabled for Quicken to go through to import a QIF file. This can come quite handy when you work and travel and do not have Internet always-on but need to with your transactions.

QIF format has many variants, make sure to select the correct QIF variant for your Quicken version or other personal finance or accounting software.

QIF format is a great format supporting categories and tags. Quicken was discouraging the QIF format until 2018, but still, all Windows versions import it fine (since Quicken 2018, the QIF file is 'officially' supported).

Quicken 2005-2017 for Windows has to be at least the Deluxe version to import QIF files directly into bank or credit card accounts.

Quicken 2018-2020 for Windows imports QIF files fine.

Quicken for Mac 2015-2021 does not import QIF files.

Quicken for Mac 2007 imports QIF files fine.

QIF format advantages

  • supports categories and tags

  • you have to follow specific instructions to import a QIF file

  • works even if your Quicken version for Windows is older than three years

  • does not need the Internet to import

  • investment transactions are supported by CSV2QIF

  • make sure to select the correct QIF target (Quicken version) when you convert to the QIF format

QIF format disadvantages

  • Until Quicken 2018, QIF is not supported 'officially' and there are various traps set to prevent QIF import, however, all Quicken for Windows versions do import QIF files

  • You have to enter the account name and select a correct QIF target to create an importable QIF file

  • Duplicates are not considered during QIF import

  • Quicken for Mac 2015-2021 does not import QIF files

  • Quicken Essentials for Mac does not import QIF files

Converters to convert to the QIF format

Import QIF into Quicken 2005-2017 for Windows

You need to enter the account name in Bank2QIF and other 2QIF converters exactly as you have it Quicken, otherwise during QIF import, Quicken will try to create a new account with that name. For example, if your checking account in Quicken is called “Checking” or “Bank checking” or another name, you need to enter this name exactly in Bank2QIF, as well as select the correct account type, before saving a QIF file.

QIF Format Summary

Quicken converter downloadQuicken Mac 2015 Download Converter

QIF format is a great file format to import transactions with categories and tags. CSV2QIF converts CSV and Excel files to QIF format ready to import into Quicken 2017 for Windows, as well as Quicken 2016, Quicken 2015, Quicken 2014, and earlier versions. Also, you can create QIF files for Quicken 2007 for Mac, and other personal finance applications like MS Money, You need a Budget (YNAB), NetSuite, etc.

Important details for a successful conversion from CSV to QIF and import into Quicken or other accounting software are the following:

  • Check that expenses are negative and payments to the account are positive. Some credit card companies supply amounts on CSV files in the opposite way (expenses are positive, and credit card payments are negative). Use the “Change +/-” button on the sidebar to reverse the amount signs for the whole file in a single click

  • Make sure to select the correct QIF target (which accounting or personal finance software are you importing into)

  • Make sure to select the correct account type (BANK vs CCARD vs INVST)

  • Make sure to enter the account NAME exactly as you have in Quicken for direct import into that account. Quicken reads the account name from the QIF file and locates the account before importing. If the account name is not found, Quicken prompts to create a new account

  • Date format is ignored if QIF target is Quicken – Quicken expects only one date format and CSV2QIF uses the expected format

  • Quicken 2015, 2016 does not import QIF files directly into bank or credit card accounts. Use a proxy cash account to import your transactions and then move transactions to another account.

If you have an Excel file instead of CSV (XLSX or XLS), CSV2QIF should be able to open it directly (make sure to close the Excel file in you have it opened in Excel). You may also open the Excel file in Excel, select transactions, copy them and then click Paste in CSV2QIF.

  • Internet is required during QFX import

  • Quicken account has to be 'disconnected' from direct online download for QFX import and connected back after import

  • investment transactions are not supported

Quicken Pc To Mac Conversion

Important note about INTU.BID, bank id, and account id values on the Setting tab. You can either leave them as is, select another supported bank, and enter other values for bank id and account id. Quicken will use INTU.BID shows the corresponding bank name on the import screen, but actually giving you the choice to select an existing account or create a new one. This is great confusion since the INTU.BID bank identification on the Web Connect QFX file is relevant to the account for which the import is happening. You can easily import Web Connect QFX files marked as from one bank to the actually needed account in Quicken. Simply choose the bank currently ‘supported’ by Quicken using the Lookup button and complete the import.

Quicken assigns INTU.BID, bank id, and account ID to the Quicken account (an account created by you in Quicken) after successful import calling it ‘linked online services’. You can always delete such online services by editing the account in Quicken (click on the Online Services tab), if you need to import other Web Connect QFX files with other values for INTU.BID, bank id, and account id.

During QFX import, Quicken ‘calls home’ using an Internet connection (so please make sure your firewall allows it to go through), and assigns bank details supplied in the QFX file with the selected account in Quicken. Even more, if Quicken finds the match for bank details in the QFX to details with an account, it imports data there automatically. Otherwise, it offers you the import dialog to select an existing “unlinked” account or create a new one.

If you have an Excel file instead of CSV, CSV2QFX simply open it in Excel, select all (CTRL+A) and copy to clipboard (CTRL+C). Switch to CSV2QFX and click on the Paste from Clipboard button to paste data from the clipboard. This approach saves you from creating a CSV file from your excel file. The approach also applies to other spreadsheet software supporting the copy and paste of multiple cells into the clipboard.

QFX format supplies a unique id for each transaction, and Quicken uses it to avoid import for the same transaction next time. However, when you prepare your CSV file, it is common for you may notice some transactions mistakes, so you need to fix them and import the file again. Even if you deleted the transaction in Quicken, it still refuses to import it the second time.

To deal with your need to import corrected transactions again, CSV2QFX allows to create unique transaction IDs every time you save the QFX file (this option is turned on by default), as well as keep transaction IDs consistent if you need them to be this way.

If you have an Excel file instead of CSV (XLSX or XLS), CSV2QFX should be able to open it directly (make sure to close the Excel file if you have it opened in Excel). You may also open the Excel file in Excel, select transactions, copy them and then click Paste in CSV2QFX.
