How can I start my QuickBooks online account with only my information on a thumb drive. I can't connect to the internet on my old system to upload it.

My old system cannot connect to the internet so how do I get my information over to my new online account.

How can I start my QuickBooks online account with only my information on a thumb drive. I can't connect to the internet on my old system to upload it.

I can help transfer your information in QuickBooks, collisionprossal.

 

Beforehand, may I know which system your data came from? If it's QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT). You can use our trial version and migrate it to QBO.

 

Additionally, QBO is a cloud-based accounting software that requires an internet connection to access and use the application.

 

Furthermore, you can import the following information to QuickBooks Online:

 

  • Bank Data
  • Customers
  • Vendors
  • Chart of Accounts
  • Products and Services
  • Invoices

 

If you have these details in your thumb drive, we can bring them by following the steps below.

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Under Tools, select Import data.
  3. Select which data you want to put in the program.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.

 

For more information, check these links. It also gives the format you can use to import the data.

 

 

I've added this article to learn more about QuickBooks Online and how to navigate it: Get started and adjust settings after your sign-up.

 

Let me know if you have other questions about bringing data into QuickBooks or need assistance with other tasks. I'm always here to help. Take care.

Do you have a QB Desktop file in your thumb drive?

Which QB Desktop year version did you use?

You can use the trial version of QB Desktop 2019 and 2021 to upgrade your company file gradually and convert it to QB Online.
