I would like to export my entire bitcoin-qt wallet (private keys for all accounts) to another client such as MultiBit or blockchain.info.  The reason is that I don't run bitcoin-qt very often, and I don't like waiting for the blockchain to update when I do; also, blockchain.info is more convenient for everyday use, since I can access it from anywhere.

I prefer to move the keys, rather than just transfer the funds to a new account, because I don't want to have to keep re-running the standard client every time I want to sweep up any funds that may have been deposited to those old accounts.

I've tried using pywallet to dump my wallet to a JSON file, but it seems neither that blockchain.info nor MultiBit is able to successfully parse the JSON file produced from the wallet file for the current bitcoin-qt client.  However, I was able to import a older wallet dumped from an earlier version of the MIT client (from before the days of encrypted wallet files) into blockchain.info successfully.

I can probably extract individual private keys and import them one at a time, but this is time-consuming and error-prone to do for all accounts in the wallet.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance...

If all the sovereign non-cryptocurrencies will eventually collapse from hyperinflation, you can't afford *not* to invest in Bitcoin...  See my blog at http://minetopics.blogspot.com/ .

Is it possible to export bitcoin to bitcoin-qt out of interest? Or is it only a one way mechanic?

It can be done, but it is an advanced function.  There is no intuitive method in the user interface.

Specifically, using the "Console" in the "Debug Window" under the "Help" menu, you can use the importprivkey API command.
