Customer Question
I have used Money99...

I have used Money99 for years. Now I am switching to Quicken Deluxe. I want to use my old Money99 file with my new Quicken program.I have saved a backup copy of my Money99 file. I downloaded Money 2005

Technician's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Every time I try to restore the backup into Money 2005, it has some screen message that tells me I can't do it. So how do I do it.

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

If your Quicken version is 2011 or newer, there is a path to getting the Money99 file's data into Quicken.

This help page has all the details, for your reference:

http://www.quicken.com/support/help/GEN82753

The first thing is to get and install a copy of Microsoft Money Plus Sunset Deluxe:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20738

for free. Install it.

Then, you must exit from MS Money first, before doing the import.

Then, you create an EMPTY data file in Quicken.

Then go to

File

then to

File Import

then to

Microsoft Money file

- what problems are you having with essentially those steps ? any error message?

I am way ahead of you here. Microsoft states that the Money99 files cannot transfer to Money Plus Sunset Deluxe and that I need some intermediary program like Money 2005 and they actually provide a link to install it. I did it and the files still don't transfer.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Anyway, I don't like your service and I want to terminate it.

the 2005 version will not load a backup file

you need to have the original money99 program running when you install the 2005 and then it will automatically locate and convert the 99 file

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/913108

also you can not have the 2006 version installed when you do this.

I can log in remotely and work on it with you if you like. But you will need to have the money99 working on the computer to get this done.
