Transfer QB Desktop to QB Online

Hi.

I have a .QBM and .QBW file from my Accountant.  Is there a way to upload one of these files to QB Online?  Or, do we need to transfer it online (following the video instructions)?

 

Thanks.

Transfer QB Desktop to QB Online

Hello,

 

You would need to load the file into QB Desktop first and then use the "Export to QB Online" option.

 

Keep in mind though, this will give you the option of creating a NEW online company or 100% overwriting an existing online company file (60 days old or less) only.  You CANNOT take a desktop file and "add" or "merge" the info into an existing QuickBooks Online company.

Open a new blank QBO account

then install the trial license of QBD 2021 on your machine to open the QBW or QBM file and migrate it to QBO.
