I have spent maybe a week on this. Exporting a Quicken 2001 or 2000 file to QIF format in order for the PC verion to import the data. The files are not cross platform.

When the QIF is imported into the PC, the 2000 dates appear on top of the register before 1999!

Here is the solution I found after many hours and talkin got their tech support (its on the Quicken support site if you can find it), "This issue will occur if the Show Century option was not selected on your Macintosh when you created the QIF file. To resolve this issue, choose Control Panels from the Apple menu on your Macintosh.? In the Date and Time Control Panel under Date Formats, turn on the Show Century option.? Then create a new QIF file from Quicken for Macintosh".

This works fine.

Hopefully, this will help someone in the future.

I only wish I had some money to manage.
