Re: Archiving all file prioir to 2018

Hello there, @etasura.


Currently, there's no option to archive your data in QuickBooks Desktop. You can condense your data file and the close transactions will be converted to journal entries.


However, you can create a company file from your existing company file, start your fiscal year so that you won't have do it again.


From there, the Chart of Accounts lists will be saved. The balance and old transactions will not included. Let me show you the steps on how you can do it.


Here's how:

  1. Select the File.
  2. Click  New Company from Existing Company File.
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions.
  4. Click Create Company.


For your future reference, you can read this article: What's new in QuickBooks Desktop for Windows 2019.
