Conversion from Online to Desktop. Is there a way to create a .qbb file from QBO Plus to upload to QBD Enterprise?

We are using Right Networks so that multiple users can work in QBD Enterprise at one time. In order to upload into their platform, the file must be .qbb not Excel format.

Conversion from Online to Desktop. Is there a way to create a .qbb file from QBO Plus to upload to QBD Enterprise?

Let me provide the file you can download from QuickBooks Online (QBO), lwmail4u.

 

The file we can provide from QBO is from an Excel format. And, here's how to get them out of the system:

  1. Select the Settings ⚙ and then Export Data.
  2. On the Reports tab, set the date range.
  3. Add or remove items from the Reports and Lists tabs by toggling the slider.
  4. Select Export to Excel.

You'll be prompted with confirmation that the data has been exported. 

 

If you need to export a different report, here's how to export reports to Excel. You many need to use a third- party app that can convert an Excel file to .qbb.

 

You have the option to directly move your files to Desktop. Simply follow these steps to accomplish this:

 

  1. Login to your client's QuickBooks Online account.
  2. the Settings ⚙. then choose Export Data.
  3. Enter your reason why you're exporting the data, then click Continue.
  4. Under Moving to QuickBooks Desktop?, select Learn more.
  5. Under Download company data, choose Learn more.
  6. Review your data from the export overview screen, then click Get Started.
  7. In the Exporting from QuickBooks Online page, select Continue to Download.
  8. Follow the rest of the on-screen instructions to complete the exporting process.

Just a heads-up, there are some data that may not be included during the moving process. You may check out this article for additional insight: Export limitations - QuickBooks Online to QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Also, we now allow you to download your QBO data through the Intuit Account Manager. Check out this link for more details: Access and manage your personal data.

This didn't answer the question posed by lwmail4u.  They specifically stated that they want a .qbb NOT an Excel file.  I also want a .qbb from QBO.  How is this done?  I did it before, years ago with another client. 

 

The question: Can we download a backup of QBO in order to restore it to QB desktop?

Hello there, @csteelecpa.

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. Allow me to help you convert your data from QuickBooks Online to  QuickBooks Desktop.

 

The .QBB file extension is only applicable in the desktop version. Also, you can back up your company data if you have QuickBooks Online Advanced.

 

For more info about the conversion process, you can review: Export and convert your QuickBooks Online data to QuickBooks Desktop.

 

You're always welcome here in the community. Have a wonderful day!
