how to transfer data from qb 2010 to qb 2019

Hi there, @dstrickland018.


Thanks for reaching out to us here in the Community. I can help transfer your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) for Mac data from 2010 to 2019 version.


You can follow the steps below to transfer your QBDT for Mac company file to a newer version:


1. Launch your new version of QuickBooks Mac Desktop.
2. Select File, then pick Open Company.
3. Browse to your data file, choose your company file and click Open.
4. Read the info on the upgrade dialog, then pick Upgrade to open.
5. Log into the company file as the Admin user, then select OK on the following dialog stating the file has been upgraded.
6. Once the file is upgraded, you'll need to:
     a. Store the backup you created in a safe location until you are certain you won't need it again.
     b. If you copied the data file from another computer to upgrade it, copy it back again.
     c. If you cannot find your data file in its original location and if it is not in the specified folder, search your hard drive for *.qb*, which will find all QuickBooks Company files.


For future reference, you can also check out this article for further guidance: Upgrade or convert your company file to a new QuickBooks Desktop version. Just in case you need it, you may visit this article for more information about QBDT for Mac 2019: What's new in QuickBooks Desktop for Mac 2019.


That should do it! Please let me know how it goes or if I can be of additional assistance. I'm only a post away if you have any follow-up questions. Take care and have a good one!

how to transfer data from qb 2010 to qb 2019

I want to know how to transfer only invoices for 2018 sales from the old QB to new QB, nothing else, but it makes sense that I would have to also transfer item lists so the new QB can identify where to sort the invoices, which each include several itemized products.   I  just set up the new QB this week with a chart of accounts, nothing else so far.

Thanks for reaching out again to us, Dave73,


Currently, QuickBooks does not provide a method that will allow you to transfer completed invoices from one company file from another.


You may wish to consider looking for third party application provider to view wide-range of options about transferring invoices.


If you have further questions, please feel to visit us again. Have a great day!
