Re: needing a checking program

I understand the necessity of exporting my Quicken qif information for each financial account housed in Quicken. I was able to export my checking account without any difficulty even though Money Talks only imported the first 20 or so transactions due to it being a trial. I'm more confused how to get a complete financial picture with Money Talks since it seems to require maintaining separate files for each of your accounts. The other thing about Money Talks I'm finding confusing is that unlike Quicken, it seems to want you to save your file every time a new transaction has been entered or an old transaction has been edited. This is more like a spreadsheet program and will require some adjustment since Quicken automatically saves anything you do in it and does not prompt you to save anything when exiting the program.
I do like Money Talks and its navigable User Manual on their website. I expect I'll get many of my questions answered after I read the entire user manual. I wish I could purchase a registered copy today but APH requires calling over the phone and providing a credit card number live so I'll have to wait until Monday when they're open again.

What you need to do is export your Quicken accounts as separate export files. I only use Quicken for my checking and savings, so if you go into the export submenu of Quicken, it will give you the option of exporting checking, savings or all. You cannot select all. Instead, you select checking and then savings or the other way around. This will give you two QIF files and you import them separately to Money Talks.
For some reason it didn't let me name them on the import and the name I chose for each one didn't show up. That may be only because I'm using the demo.
Hope This makes sense.
