What is a QIF file?

A QIF file is an ASCII text file generated by Quicken financial software. It contains a user’s financial liability and cash accounts in a text format that can easily be read by other programs, including text editors. QIF files are used to transfer data between different Quicken data files or from a financial institution’s website to Quicken software.

More Information

The QIF format was originally developed by Intuit, but it is now supported by several financial and accounting programs. Some of these programs include Microsoft Money, Corel Quattro Pro, and GnuCash. You can import a QIF file in Quicken by selecting File → Import → QIF file, navigate to the location of the file, and choose the account to which you want to import the QIF file.
