Quicken for Windows 5.0 Pocket Quicken compatibility

Quicken for Windows 5.0 Pocket Quicken compatibility

Intuit has just come out with a new version of Quicken for Windows. Among the improvements in the program, the Quicken for Windows version 5 comes with a new file structure to improve the stability of the program. Unfortunately, this new file structure is no longer compatible with that of Pocket Quicken on the HP 200LX. This means you can no longer use the HP Connectivity Packs Xlate/ Merge feature to synchronize Pocket Quicken data files with Quicken for Windows 5 data files.

One partial solution to the problem is to use Intuits Pocket Quicken Connect program. This connectivity program for the HP 200LX is compatible with both Quicken 5 for Windows and Quicken ExpensAble. (ExpensAble is a new Quicken Program used to store and generate expense reports.) Pocket Quicken Connect does have one major difference when compared to the HP connectivity. Pocket Quicken Connect does not fully synchronize files. All untransferred transactions are transferred from Pocket Quicken on the Palmtop to Quicken on your desktop PC, but only adjusted balances are sent back to the HP. This means that if you have entered any transactions on your desktop version of Quicken, these transactions will not be transferred back to the Palmtop, although the correct adjusted balance will.

Pocket Quicken Connect and ExpensAble can be ordered from Quicken Customer Service at 1-800-624-8742. (See Product Index, page 59 for price and contact information.

Intuit apologizes for the change in file structure, but believes it is necessary to facilitate the continued evolution of Quicken of Windows.
