A new approach: What I want to do is transfer all of the accounts that I've created in Quicken to another machine that has a clean install of quicken. I just want the account information, not all of the transactions associated with those accounts.
I also would like to transfer my online payee list information, as well as my memorized payees.
How can this be done? I am hoping that the developers of quicken were smart enough to separate account information from associated transactions so one could effectively transfer 'clean' accounts.
One approach I can think of is to import a backup version of my data and manually go into each of the transaction ledgers and delete all the transactions but Quicken does not seem to provide a way to manually delete multiple transactions... Well one caveat...One can select all the transaction on one page of the ledger and delete them. In my situation, I have a transaction ledger with over 1000 transactions. Effectively, I want to purge all my transaction data and start from scratch. Any help is appreciated... John
