How to export your investment portfolios from Microsoft Money Plus into QIF

The Money Plus application from Microsoft allows you to export your investment portfolios into Quicken Interchange Format (QIF) files. QIF files contain information about the transactions that have occurred in your portfolio. You can use QIF files to transfer your portfolio information to other financial applications.
