Duplicate a company file with a new name

Hello.  I am using QB Pro 2024 desktop to input/run one company's information.  I would like to duplicate this company with a new name in order to teach my replacement how to use the program without actually altering the company information.  Is this possible?

Create the backup file and you can restore it with a new name later.

Duplicate a company file with a new name

Hi there KarinMinden,


Thanks for reaching out regarding backing up your company file. QuickBooks Desktop is a great tool able to help keep track of sales and expenses so you know the profitability of your company. I can point you in the right direction for assistance with backups.


As 4Gal mentioned, one step you could try would be to create the backup file, then rename it. If that doesn't work, then I recommend reaching out to the QuickBooks Desktop support team. They'll be able to assist you with making sure your backups are done effectively. You can reach them using the methods outlined in the QuickBooks Desktop support policies.


if you have any other questions, feel free to reach out here.
