Perhaps I shouldn't let this apparent misunderstanding pass by, even
though I am not an expert. Quicken is not Quickbooks. I think the
QIF files that gnucash imports only contain general ledger data
If Andy wants to enter customer data into Gnucash, such as names,
addresses and unpaid invoices, I suspect he will need to write a
program or do it by hand.
Also, I assume that his wife is going to wait until a new financial
year before switching bookkeeping packages. It doesn't seem to be any
fun to do the big export-import thing in the middle of the year.
Probably better to start with a blank set of accounts with the brought
forward balances at the top.
