These QIF files are generally classified as non-proprietary data files that contain a user's financial accounts in an ASCII text format. They are used to transfer data between different Quicken data files or from a financial institution's website to Quicken software. In 2005, Quicken already discontinued its built-in QIF importing function and was replaced by QFX format. However since QFX require payment of licensing fee and passing quality tests, many financial institutions still offer QIF downloads for convenience. When creating a QIF file, the name must have between three and eight characters long followed by the QIF extension to be recognized by Windows. They may need to be edited in Notepad or Simpletext when moving files from a Quicken for Windows program to a Quicken for Macintosh program.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .qif. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
