Question ID: 540407
I have a great deal of data in my Moneycounts v 9.0e accounting
program.  It was a Parsons Technology product that is no longer
available.  There is a conversion to Quicken 5 available from
Broderbund but I cannot get it to work.  I get an error message "unable
to open INMCRDV9.DLL".  Do you know of anyway to convert my data;
perferable to Quicken v5 or later?   I am searching for any
suggestions or sources to answer the conversion problem.

I would assume you're already familiar with the discussion on
this page at dbForums. If not, it might be of interest:

Let me know...

I had read the dbforum Q&A previously.  The Raima data manager is an
embedded DB program and as far as I know not available as a stand
alone product.  I have not been able to locate a copy of I-Reports and
I do not know what specific formats it can export into.   I do have a
copy of Quicken v5 and the purported conversion utility but have been
able to complete the conversion as the instructions say it can be
done.  As far as I know Quicken will import only a ".QIF" type file. 
Some non-Intuit programs will export "QIF" files (such as "Managing
your Money" and some version of "Microsoft Money".  If can convert to
one of these I should be able to export my data to Quicken.

Thanks uces

It seems to me that the simplest solution would be to find
a copy of INMCRDV9.DLL, which should probably be placed in
the system or system32 directory, depending on your system.

Unfortunately, extensive searches on multiple sites don't 
turn up a copy of this file.

Have you done a thorough search of all your drives to see
if you can locate a copy? Do you still have the installation
disks for Moneycounts? Is it possible you have a copy of
a Windows (or any other) backup on which it might be located?

I have already tried a search on my system as well as a web search
which has been fruitless.  If we look at the file name "INMCRDV9.DLL"
it appears to be a "Moneycounts" file.  I base this on the assumptios
the the "MC" in INMCRDV9.DLL refers to Moneycounts and "V9" references
version 9.  This may be totally wrong but it seems to fit.

I completetly concur with your analysis of the filename,
and had gone through a similar thought process.

I take it from your response that you don't have a copy
of the installation files for the software. The only 
thing I can think of is to either to post somewhere 
asking if anyone can dig up the file from their copy of
the software, or lend you the software by mailing it to
you, or to go ahead and purchase another copy of the
Moneycounts program to obtain the file.

There's a copy for sale on for $80.
I know that seems like a waste, but if your data is
that important to you, it might be worth it:

You say you did download the Broderbund "purported
conversion utility", but were unable to complete the
conversion according to the given instructions?

I don't have Moneycounts so I can't provide any direct
assistance with that process, but I'm curious about the
specifics of the outcome of this process. Was the utility
able to produce any kind of output file? What was the 
extension for that file? Quicken is able to *import* .QIF
files, but should also be able to *open* .QDF, .QDB and .QDT
files. QDF is the native backup and operating file format.

I do have the original installation disks for Moneycounts and I have
found a upgrade to verson 9e.  None of these have provided  me with
the necessary file.  I suspect their may be a flaw in the unsupported
conversion utility.

Big Red consulting offers a program to convert "Excel" files to "OFX"
files which they say can be imported to quicken.  Know this If could
export my Moneycount files to Excel format that may offer a solution. 
Moneycount will export in a ".MIF" file format.  Does anyone have any
information on this file and how it may apply to my situation?

Pardon the poor spelling - I posted without proof reading.

There's not much on the net about .mif files, and I wouldn't 
know how to begin converting one to Excel format, however I 
did run across a company that specializes in data conversion,
and lists both Quicken and Moneycounts among the softwares
the handle. Unfortunately, the Quicken versions they list
don't include Quicken 5. Nonetheless, it might be worth a 
call to their toll-free number - perhaps the software they 
actually accommodate has exceeded what they've currently
listed on their website. They're called Pivar:

Thanks for the tip on "Pivar" but unfortunately they could only offer
data extraction from the DB files and no conversion.
