    Quicken File Format Reader


    Last year a company was advertising a VB add-in that allowed programs to read
    quicken files.

    Does anybody know who the company is/was and where i can get more information
    ?

    Thanks.

    (You may already know this...) I dug around in their help file and found the
    specifications. It didn't look too hard to parse right from VB.

    Thanx for the reply Mark.

    Yes i know i could parse the files myself but it might take a while and with
    this financial information it needs to be "on the money" :-)

    I was hoping i could use the existing component to save me the time / effort
    and grief of debugging......

    Jimmy,

    Since the data format doesn't allow for the possibility of already-existing
    entries (No GUID, etc) being 100% "on the money" is perhaps an unreachable
    goal. (I accidently imported the same transaction list twice, and then spent
    a very long time getting rid of all the duplicate entries.)

    I agree. Please post if you find something.

    Good luck!

    Jimmy: I haven't heard of such a product for several years. The last one I
    remember hearing about was a 16-bit ODBC driver for Quicken files called
    VBXchange from a company called Spinoza, Ltd. back in 1996. I don't think
    they're in business anymore.
