If your client is using Enterprise edition, you have to use Enterprise or Enterprise Accountant edition. Utilize the trial license of Enteprise edition for the time being. Otherwise, you have to purchase a 3rd party downgrade service to convert it.

Thank you for this information. I was unaware of the 3rd party option. I was hoping there was a way for the Enterprise user to export in a format usable to a lower grade QB user.

Hi there, JBinSC.

 

Downgrading company file is unavailable with QuickBooks. Although we can open Desktop Pro to Enterprise edition, but not the other way around. 

 

Also, I agree with Fiat Lux - ASIA's suggestion to take advantage of the trial edition and search for a third party application in the market place.

 

Here's where you can check for a supported app that can successfully integrate with QuickBooks Desktop: Apps for QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Let me know if you need further assistance. I'm here to back you up. Have a good one.

If you're an accountant taking over a file for a new client, and that file is from an Enterprise version and you don't have Enterprise, you can have the file converted to Pro/Premier using our service. See BRC Enterprise to Pro/Premier Conversion Service

BigRed - I see on your site that you only work with US versions of Quickbooks. My version is for Canada. Any solutions for me?
