I appreciate you getting back to us, @goodguysmagic.

 

Let's clear your Internet Explorer's cache so you can export your data to QuickBooks Desktop successfully.

 

Just to clarify, are you using Internet Explorer when exporting data? Or did you receive an error message upon clicking the Get Started button? Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Click the Gear icon in your internet explorer.
  2. Select Safety, then choose Delete browsing history...
  3. In the Delete Browsing History window, put a checkmark only for Temporary Internet files and website files.
  4. Click Delete.

Once done, go back and try to export your data again to double-check. For more guidance, feel free to check out this article: Export your QuickBooks Online data to QuickBooks Desktop.

 

If the issue persists, I recommend contacting our Customer Support Team. This way, they can further investigate this matter and help you export your data successfully.
