Exporting and importing transactions

Can I export transactions from QB Enterprise and import them into QB Desktop Premier 2019?

Re: Exporting and importing transactions

There's nothing built into QB to help you do this.


If you want to export select transaction from an Enterprise (or any) QB file and then import them into another file, use our BRC Transaction Copier 


If you really want to convert your entire Enterprise file to Pro or Premier, then a better way is to use our BRC Enterprise to Pro/Premier Conversion Service

Re: Exporting and importing transactions

Hi there, @Bestzin.


It's nice to have you back here in the Community. I'm here to share some information about the export and import process in QuickBooks Desktop.


You can import transactions on your QuickBooks Desktop Premier. However, you can only export lists from QuickBooks. You can check out for some third party application that supports this feature.


To guide through the process of exporting lists and importing transactions, you can use the Export or import Intuit Interchange Format (.IIF).  For more insights about this procedure, please check out this article: Export or import Intuit Interchange Format (.IIF) files.



I'd also encourage sharing your product suggestions to our developers by sending us feedback. Doing this helps them determine the features that needs to be added for future updates. This can also help us assess how we can better serve you in running your business. 


In order for them to account your suggestions, please follow these steps on your QuickBooks Desktop account:

  1. Click the Help menu bar.
  2. Scroll down to Send Feedback Online.
  3. Select Product Suggestion.
  4. Choose Product Suggestion for the Type of Feedback.
  5. Product Area is optional.
  6. Enter your suggestion.
  7. Click Send Feedback.


Please let me know if you need further assistance with your QuickBooks account. I'm here to help you out whenever you needed me. Have a great day!

RE: I can walk you through with exporting transactions from QuickBooks Enterprise then import it to your QuickBooks Desktop Premier.

No, you cannot do this! There is no export of transactions to an IIF file built into QuickBooks.  You can only export lists to an IIF file.

Actually, in QB desktop if you search for all transactions in an account for whatever date range you want, you can then export to Excel or CSV in the lower right corner of the advanced find box.

Re: Exporting and importing transactions

Actually, in QB Desktop Pro (or any desktop version) you can export transactions by searching in the advanced find box for all transactions in the account you want to export from, limited by date or anything you want or just all transactions for that account.  Then click the Export button on the right side of the find box under Report.  See attached screenshot.
