I am unable to get my "Accountant's Copy" back from him. My version now will not let me change older transactions or create sub accounts? Can I unlock it without it?

I am using Quickbooks Pro 2016.  My accountant was given an Accountants Copy earlier this year, but his office is no longer working with me and cannot locate my file.  Is there a way to make it stop asking for the accountant's copy so I can make sub accounts and change older transactions?

You can remove the restrictions.  I think it's the same as in the Accountant's Edition.

File > Send company file > Accountant's Copy > Client Activities (if using Accountant's Edition) > Remove Restrictions.

Using QuickBooks Premier Edition 2016 desktop.

I set up a new company and inadvertently created an accountant's copy (there were no entries in the new company).  Can I undo / delete the accountant's copy so I can enter payables, receivables, bank info, etc. in the new company?  Or should I just delete the new company and setup another one?
