My computer crashed and the "expert" took it away. He managed to download all my documents onto a disk and restart the machine. He returned with it and told me he needed my Quicken disc to reloan the programme files. The only disc I have is entitled Quicken 2002 and I have no recollection of ever seeing a 2004 one. I am now left with all my financial detials on the PC but cannot access them. Does anyone know where I can beg, borrow (I hesitate to say steal) a 2004 disc for a couple of days so tha I can transfer all my financial data to M S Money?
Just a thought but how does your "expert" know they are Quicken 2004 files? Sure the icon for 2004 is different from 2002 - but this would only show up after Quicken was loaded. You would have to have purchased 2004 as a separate item (I am not aware there was ever an upgrade because it was so cheap in the first place). I suspect you may just have 2002 data files and could reload 2002 with no probs up to XP (no experience of Vista).
Mimram, He copied all my files onto a disk before formatting the hard drive. When he reloaded all the date, there was the Quicken data and among it a Quicken.dat file. When he clicked on this it came up "Quicken2004" with a message "Cannot open file". I am as bemused about this as you possibly are.
