Hello there, @buildxp.
I can help you convert or upgrade your company file to a newer version.
First, you can create a backup of the current file. It protects your data in case of system failure or file corruption. Here's how:
Once you've saved your backup of the company file, you can now install QuickBooks Desktop 2021. Make sure to select the correct region, product, and version.
After the installer has been downloaded, it's time to run it. Then, you can restore your file to the new location. Here's how:
Then, update the software to the latest release so you'll always have the latest features and fixes.
Note: After the file has been updated, you won't be able to use it in the lower version.
For more details about upgrading QuickBooks Desktop to a newer version, you can read these resources:
Comment below if you have follow-up questions about converting a file to the latest version of QuickBooks Desktop. You can also mention which QBD year version you have. I'm always here to help. Have a good one!
I have version 3
I know it is a old version BUT it does what I want ( ONLY USE ) the customer list and invoiceing
BUT now my computer as gone bust so had to get a new one with windows 10 on it and of cause QBD 3 will not run on it
Hello Buildxp, thanks for coming back to us, so because you have a very old version/file, your best option would be to take out/ upgrade and set up a new file on the latest version of desktop we have out and enter opening balances and start again. As there is no way to mirgate your date over as the file is to old.
Thank you for the info
That will not be a way I would go, far to many customers and data to input again.
I would have thought that there would be a step by step version upgrade from one version to another that would in the end run on Windows ten.
After all like i say it is ONLY used for creating a INVOICE and not vat and banking etc
Have got this correct if i get 2021 then I can import my data etc into that if I get qbd team to convert the backup of my version
If not then how much will all this cost me to upgrade?
