MSMoney - Opening backup problems

MSMoney V5.0 1991-96

Need to open a backup from 1995. Backup disk has files with extention "imd."
"mny" files are absent. Is the data lost?

You might try to open them with Wordpad in Windows or Open Office. If the files are comma-delimited, tab-delimited, or space-delimited; you should be able to retrieve the data. If the files are compressed, you may have a problem. You might be able to locate someone with a copy of Money on Windows 95 from that era to open the files for you.

It may be possible to import the files into the existing copy of Money.

Hope this helps.
