I have previously successfully migrated my quicbooks desktop data to quote books online by using the menu :- COMPANY -
EXPORT YOUR COMPANY FILE TO QUICKBOOKS ONLINE
SELECT DESTINATION (CONNECTS TO QB ON LINE)
But I cannot go any further this time
there is an error message "you'll have to update your software to access your intuit software here"
After this is shows browsers it is comaptible with, but I have them installed, and I have all the current update on the program, so I cannot get past this stage to migrate, I am at my wits end, can I import my company data the other way round from the online version ? if not what can I do ?
Welcome to the Community page,
Apologies for the message, you are getting it is due to migrations being down currently and it will not be back up and running until the 1st of august the migrations.
Hi there, @Bud66.
Currently, we're working on a new service to help make your move from QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) to QuickBooks Online (QBO) as smooth as possible. Thus, we aren’t able to help you transfer your data from QBDT to QBO until we launch the new migration service.
In the meantime, you can use the open balance method to manually transfer your data from QBDT to QBO.
I'm adding this article for more information: Why can’t I move my data from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online?
I'll also add this resource once you successfully converted your data: Post conversion checks for getting started with QuickBooks Online. This will help you get started with QBO.
Come back to this post if you have any other questions about QuickBooks. I'll be around to help.
The new service is up and running through a 3rd party. You get 2 years for free and then have to pay for the rest you have legally have to keep for HMRC purposes. In otherwords Intuit are now cashing in by making you move to QBO from Desktop.
Great isn't it.
