5.3. Quicken QIF file - Import/Export

LandlordMax offers the ability to import and export Accounting Entries through the QIF file format which is supported by most banks, as well as Quicken and QuickBooks (Intuit invented the file format). Please note however that this file format is quite limited in that it will NOT link any tenants, buildings, etc. to the accounting entries, this has to be done manually. This is not a limitation of LandlordMax but rather of that file format (you can find the details of what's possible by viewing the specs of the QIF file format here).

Moreover, the software will not synchronize your entries, which means it's up to you to manage which entries you wish to import and export. If you transfer the same entry twice, it will appear twice in the software.

STEP 1: Export to QIF from LandlordMax

Go to Import/Export menu, click QIF File at the top of the screen. In the Export to QIF section, click Browse. In the popup window, choose where to save the exported file (the .qif file) and then chose a name for this file and click Save. Back in the main screen, choose the start and end date for the data you which to export and click Export.

STEP 2: Import from QIF file into LandlordMax

Go to Import/Export menu, click QIF File at the top of the screen. In the Import from QIF section, click Browse. In the popup window, choose where to save the imported file (the .qif file), chose a name for this file and click Save. Back in the main screen, click Import.

All the imported line items from the QIF file will be added as Suggested Accounting Entries into the Accounting section of the software. To repeat, they will not appear as accounting entries in the main list, they will only appear as Suggested Accounting Entries which then need to be approved.
