Thanks for choosing QuickBooks as your accounting partner, @dobeluvr.

 

Yes, you can export or upgrade your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) 2015 company file to QBDT 2022. However, since the support for QBDT 2015 is discontinued and the gap from it to the 2022 version is large. You'll have to convert your 2015 company file incrementally so the data will be adjusted as it is converted to a higher version. 

 

To do so, I suggest reaching out to our Technical Support Team. They have the specific tools to help you download and install the higher versions (2016, 2017, 2020). Then, convert the file accordingly. Before performing any steps, I'd recommend creating a backup copy of your company file. 

 

When everything is fine, you can already upgrade your company file to the 2022 version. Once finished, I suggest you update your QBDT to the latest release to have the latest components and fixes.

 

I've also added here a compilation of how-to articles that will further guide you in optimizing your QBDT navigation. These include topics for reports and accounting, banking, account management, etc.

 

Please leave a reply below if you have any other concerns about exporting your QBDT 2015 company file to QBDT 2022. It's my pleasure to assist you further. Keep safe always.

They don't offer the trial license for QBD 2022 Pro. You can install the trial license for QBD 2019 as the stepping stone. Contact us in private and we may share the code if required.
