Account file password?



I created a QuickBooks accountant copy .QBX.  The accountant needs the password, but I wasn't prompted to create a password when i exported it.  I had them try our existing password for our current file, but that didn't work either.  any ideas how to get this file open?  Thx

Account file password?

Try opening the sample file on your machine and sending the *.qbx file to your accountant. Did they encounter the same issue?

Account file password?

Hi MJLenin,


When you use the Accountant's Copy File Transfer Service to send a file through the web, you'll need to create a password.  Please follow this link to ensure you've completed the necessary steps.
