File Conversion

Client still has Accountant's copy (.QBX) and the Accountant's file was converted to regular file (.qbw). Is there a way to convert the .qbw back to an Accountant's Copy to send with all the changes? Or is there another solution?

File Conversion

It's good to hear from you today, TaxAgent.


The (.QBW) is the converted working file. If you need to send it back as an Accountant's copy, you'll need to create a new one.


Here's how:


  1. Turn off any Advanced Inventory features you currently use. You'll turn them back on as soon as you send the Accountant's Copy.
  2. Go to the File menu and hover over Send Company File.
  3. Hover over Accountant's Copy and then hover over Client Activities.

  4. Select Save File and then Next.
  5. Select the Accountant's Copy and then Next.
  6. Enter the dividing date. Then select Next.
