When you start Quicken, it opens the last data file you used. You can work with only one data file at a time. To work with a different data file during a single Quicken session, just open it. Quicken closes all the open Quicken dialogs associated with the current data file for you.
- Choose File menu > Open Quicken File.
- What happens now?
- Select the file you want to open, or enter the name of the file in the File name field.
- Click OK.
If you have trouble opening your Quicken data file, there are a number of things you can try.
