Before you can export items to Quicken using the Neat Smart Organization System you need to import your Quicken Accounts.

Please Note: Different versions of Quicken use different file formats, such as QFX, QIF, and QDF. Neat only uses QIF file formats. Because Neat uses only the QIF file format, it’s necessary to first export your Quicken accounts to QIF from Quicken to ensure Neat and Quicken can work together using same format. After exporting your Quicken Accounts, that QIF file needs to be imported into Neat so that items exported later will be compatible with your Quicken accounts.  

Import your Quicken Account to Neat

  1. Open Quicken and your company file.
  2. From the File menu, choose Export and then QIF File. The QIF Export dialog box opens.
  3. Choose from the Quicken Account to Export from dropdown menu.
