From QB Pro 2004 to QB Desktop Pro 2020 migration

Hi,

I had purchased QB Desktop Pro 2020 recently and tried to migrate my QB Pro 2004 to it and failed.

I learned from Q&A in this community that the 2004 QB file needed to be converted to the latest file type.

I attempted some solutions for similar issue posted here but none of them worked for me.

Does Intuit offer a file conversion service?

Please advise.

Call and ask Intuit Data Service to convert it. Should you need to resolve in due course (i.e weekend), consider purchasing a 3rd party conversion service.

Thanks for reaching out, @Yasu.

 

I'm here to help. When going from an older version of our software, such as in your case to a recent version, it's best to upgrade the file in small increments. So, for instance, upgrading your file from 2004 to 2010, then to 2015, and so on until you're on the version you have now. To do this, you'll need to install each version on your computer temporarily and open your file in each. You can grab the downloads here.

 

If you have any trouble going through this process, we'll be here to help. You can also reach out to our QuickBooks Desktop Support Team for assistance if you'd like.

 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!

Thank you for your advise!

Intuit Data Service helped me converting my old file to the latest file type. I successfully started using QB 2020 now.
