Converting your data from Quicken to QuickBooks is a complex process and if you require assistance, you will need to contact QuickBooks Support.

Because Quicken and QuickBooks are now separate companies (QuickBooks is owned by Intuit), Quicken Support is unable to assist with this process.

To convert your data 

Quicken data (Windows only) can be converted to QuickBooks using the data converter built into the QuickBooks software. Complete information is available on the QuickBooks support site. For QuickBooks Online, go here. For QuickBooks Desktop, go here.
