Transferring Data from Earlier Versions of QuickBooks

If you've used an earlier version of QuickBooks and want to transfer your old QuickBooks company data to the latest version of QuickBooks, you'll find the process is quick and simple. But beware! After you transfer a company file forward to a newer version of QuickBooks, you can never reopen that company file in an earlier version of QuickBooks. So, in a multiuser environment, make sure all computers are upgraded to the new version of QuickBooks before you open your company file on one of the upgraded computers.

Transfer Data from Earlier Versions of QuickBooks

From the opening screen in the new version of QuickBooks, click the name of your company file.

Click Open.

Type the word yes to confirm that you want to open this file in the new version of QuickBooks.

Click OK. You will be required to follow additional onscreen instructions to complete the update. In particular, you are required to complete a backup of your company file.
