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
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:

RE: I can walk you through with exporting transactions from QuickBooks Enterprise then import it to your QuickBooks Desktop Premier.
You can do this process by using the Export or import Intuit Interchange Format (.IIF).
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 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.
Hi there, @Ap35.
Thank you for joining this thread. I'd be glad to provide info with importing data from the current company file to the new one.
Before going into detail, I'd like to ask if you're receiving an error message when importing your data?
For now, you can export multiple kinds of lists. When exporting your lists, QuickBooks creates an .IIF file that you can open on a notepad or excel. Also, exporting major lists one at a time will prevent issues as well and making a backup for your company file before importing.
Here's how to export lists to an .IIF file:
Once you've exported those lists, now you can import the list to your new company file.
Let me know if the steps above do this trick. If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to comment below. Happy Monday!
There are 2 options:
1. Utilize the 3rd party migration tools
2. Purchase a 3rd party downgrade service
Hope it helps.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this, @ExcelGeek.
We always value the views and opinions of our users as this can help us develop our product that suits their business needs.
Rest assured, our product engineers are considering all suggestions. However, we don’t have a specific time frame as to when this option will be available. I’ll recommend checking our Product Updates page from time to time to stay updated on any latest news and updates in QuickBooks.
In the meantime, you’ll want to look for a third-party app that has the feature you need. You can do so by going through the App menu in your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) software. There, you can find apps that lets you export all transactions in your QBDT.
You can also check this link to learn what can be exported and imported in QBDT: Export, import, and edit IIF files.
Once you’ve found an app that best works for you, you’ll want to check this article for reference in case you’re ready to reconcile your accounts: Reconcile an account in QuickBooks Desktop. This link provides detailed steps in reconciling your accounts smoothly.
In case you need further assistance with exporting your transactions, you can always post in the Community anytime. I’ll be around to help you. Have a good one!

To export .IIF files from QuickBooks Desktop, these six steps will accomplish just that. However, there are limitations when it comes to importing and exporting this. I recommend reviewing this article to learn more.
If you have any more questions, feel free to reach out and let me know what's up. The Community and I are here to help you. Take care.
Yet again, Intuit "support" gives a response that's incorrect. The IIF export is only for lists, not transactions. And if you export transactions into Excel, there's no way to convert that into an IIF without paying a lot of money for 3rd party software.
After so many years and iterations, you'd think that Intuit would make it possible for us to merge company files or import transactions from one company file into another, rather than spending 100 hours re-inputting all the data manually.
The ongoing ineffectiveness is why I stopped using QBO and told clients that upgrading to newer versions was a waste of money.
