How can I download my Quick Books online File?

Welcome to the Community, mikvehscle. I'm here to guide you in downloading your QuickBooks Online file and converting it to QB Desktop. 


Firstly, ensure you've downloaded and installed QB Desktop on your computer to guarantee a seamless process. Once done, you can use the migration tool to convert your QBO to QBDT easily. I'll gladly walk you through the steps on how to do so. 


  1. Sign in to your QBO account you want to convert with a supported browser. 
  2. Replace anything that is after the /app/ with exportqbodatatoqbdt. 
  3. On the Export Overview, select Get Started. 
  4. Choose the Download tool to download the QBDT migration tool.
  5. Once it's downloaded, launch the tool to install it and hit Next.
  6. Accept the terms in the license agreement and select Next. 
  7. Choose Complete as the type of setup, then Next.
  8. Select Install and Finish.
