Hi there, dan61.
Thanks for taking the time to reach out to us. I'm here to help guide you on how to open two different company file at the same time.
Only the QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise version has a feature to open two company files at the same time. Accessing both company files is easy by following the steps below:
Once you begin the process of opening a second company file, QuickBooks will let you know that there are some limitations in terms of what can and can't be done in the secondary file when it is open.
You may also check this article from the QuickBooks support site to provides additional details about the restriction when using the second company file in QuickBooks: Help articles.
That should do it! Please know that I'm just a post away if you have any other questions about opening two company files. Wishing you and your business continued success.
