I am trying to transfer a QuickBooks desktop file to quickbooks Mac. QuickBooks Mac 2019 has been installed on the Mac computer. I have made a back up from the destop version using the "file, utilities, convert to mac" option. When I send the back up file to the Mac & try to restore to Mac 2019, I am getting the error that the file is locked or read only. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Might be the permissions on where the file is stored (typically this happens with a USB key). Move the file to your Documents folder on your Mac. Then, in QuickBooks Mac, choose File->Open... and navigate to the Documents folder to select it.
