Do you need to  migrate data from QBD US version to QBO US version?

How to upload from my quickbooks desktop

Welcome to the Community, jh2004-live-com.


Let me add some information about moving data from QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) to QuickBooks Online (QBO).


These are the things you need to check before converting your file from QBDT to QBO:


  • You need to make sure you update QuickBooks to the latest release.
  • You need to check if the company file isn't too big to export.
  • You can only move a company file within 60 days after signing up to QuickBooks Online.
  • If you've already set up payroll in QuickBooks Online, you only need to move your lists.
  • Some of lists and report won't be converted because of feature differences.


Once you're ready, you may check out this article for the detailed steps: Move your QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online. It provides both steps for QuickBooks Desktop Pro, Premier and Enterprise edition.


I've added this link that you can use as a reference once you've successfully converted your data to the online version: Getting started with QuickBooks Online.


Feel free post your other concerns or leave a comment for any follow-up questions. I'll be here to assist. Enjoy your weekend.
