Welcome to the Community. I'm here to lend a hand with importing a .qbw file.
In order to import the file into QuickBooks Online, you will first need to open it in QuickBooks Desktop and import the file from there. If you don't have a version of QuickBooks Desktop installed on your computer or it's an older version, there's no need to worry, as there are trial versions that can be utilized. I'm including some articles that will assist you with this process:
I'm confident that these resources will help you with getting the file imported.
Lastly, since you're importing into QuickBooks Online, I suggest the following link which contains tutorials for the software: QuickBooks Tutorials. This can help to ensure that you get the most out of the software for your business.
Don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions or need anything. Wishing you a wonderful to start to the year.
So your saying I cannot take a qbw and just upload it?? I have to download an entirely different program (which I have to use a prepay free trial time) to then upload a file to the online version? Seems like a massively lazy design issue. There should be a upload option on the online version not the other way around.
Yes, you're right. For now, being able to import .qbw file directly in QuickBooks Online is unavailable. The .qbw is the file extension for a backup file format utilized by QuickBooks Desktop. You may need to use a trial version of the QB Desktop and restore the backup to open it and then export it to Online.
