Convert Quickbooks Descktops files to Quickbooks on line

Hello, @Manassas.


You don't need to worry. I'm here to share the detailed steps on how you can convert your file to QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) file to QuickBooks Online (QBO) successfully.


Before starting the process, you need to make sure your QuickBooks is up-to-date and review if your company file isn't too big to export. Once completed, you're now ready to export your file. Here's how to do it in QBDT Enterprise:

  1. Sign in as an admin to the company file you want to import.
  2. On your keyboard, press Ctrl 1 to open the Product Information window.
  3. Press Ctrl Q, then select OK.
  4. On the export window, select Start your export.
  5. Sign in as an admin to your QuickBooks Online company.
  6. If you track inventory in QuickBooks Desktop:
  7. Select the Choose online company drop-down, then select the QuickBooks Online company you want to be replaced by your company file.
  8. Tap Continue.
  9. Enter “Agree” in the text field, then select Replace.
  10. Tap Yes, go ahead and replace the data, then select Replace.

If you're using QBDT Pro or Premier, check out the detailed instructions from this article as your guide.


Once completed, feel free to open our QBO help articles in case you need tips and related resources in the future.
