FWIW, I passed Moneyspire along to relative of mine last week, and he
did the export to a QDF and a new Moneyspire import to the 30 day (I
believe it was) free trial version he had downloaded. Told me:
1) So many errors it would take a lot of energy to fix things
2) "I also don't think the program is as robust as Quicken"
He told me to get it and play with I. I replied as a Quicken user since
at least the DOS days in 1989 (30 years of Quicken use now) I had
absolutely no interest in trying something else.
