My QB Desktop Pro 2019 is broken. I bought and installed 2022 version and the most recent uncorrupted company file it will update/convert is from October 21. I can still load and work in my 2019 QB, but file will not backup. Can I export all my data (transactions, invoices, check register, etc.) from the Feb 22 file in my 2019 version to my October 21 install on the 2022 QB? All efforts to repair or rebuild the existing 2019 company file fail miserably.
Have you run the QB ToolHub to fix your file? Another option, chat Support and ask for Data Service to fix it. Next option, purchase a 3rd party file repair service. Last resort, utilize a migration tool.
I'm glad to hear from you today, Jasper34.
Yes, you can export your 2019 data to your new QuickBooks 2022. You can use the IIF files to import or export lists or transactions in QuickBooks Desktop. Here's how:
Once done, you can start importing them to your newly installed QuickBooks. I've got some articles for your reference. These will provide you with more details about the export limitation as well as a list of transactions that you can import:
Additionally, you might want to scan through this write-up: Fix data damage on your QuickBooks Desktop company file. This will help fix your damaged data on your QuickBooks Desktop company file.
I want to be your main point of contact, so please let me know if you have any other concerns or questions. Please know I'm ready to assist further. Have a good one.
Yes, no joy. Support would be nice, but they seem to only support the elite versions on weekends, actually just 6 hours on Saturday, but not via chat. My ISP was down 12 hours yesterday, or I would probably be up and running. I will have to do Payroll Monday on old file/version and hope they can fix it after.
What I really need is my company file fixed, but I guess I am sh*t out of luck until Monday. I'd rather not have to link 3 months worth of transactions to join my invoices and payments, etc. I will see if I can get Data Services to fix it Monday, and try exporting/importing as last resort...
Keep in mind, don't expect Data Services to fix your file(s) within a few days. If you need to fix it right away, you should consider purchasing a third-party file repair service. Otherwise, start your learning curve to take advantage of the migration tool over the weekend.
