I have designed some reports in QB Desktop and they worked.  Now when I try to open them I get an error message saying that' An unrecognised file was selected. Only ISW 2009 files can be imported

Hello ColinB1, 

 

Welcome to the Community page, 

 

What you need to do is redo the report and that error message should not show up again. 

 

So you need to delete the report and then redo it and this should then stop the error showing for you.

Hi

 

Delete by finding through 'File Explorer' or is there another way?
