Migrating QB2016 (Mac) to QB Windows 2018?

We are changing over from QuickBooks for Mac to Windows QB. We are on QB 2016 for Mac and just purchased QB Desktop Pro 2018. The online help said to migrate from Mac to Windows, you need to be on the same version of QB. There doesn’t seem to be a QB for Mac 2018 so we are stuck. Is there any way to take our QB 2016 into our new QB 2018 for Windows? Thank you.

It should work. Export to Windows from QuickBooks Mac 2016.  QB Win 2018 will upgrade the file.

I think you need to install QB 2016 for windows for you to convert the files from mac. You can ask a support for a trial version of it. For them to check if the files are still able to convert. The version means the year itself. Try to read this article, https://community.intuit.com/articles/1390150-convert-a-quickbooks-for-mac-to-a-quickbooks-for-windo... it might help.
