How do I move my 2015 quickbooks for mac data to quickbooks online?
I have 2015 Quickbooks Mac, it is now unsupported since I have updated my Mac. I need to get the information off of it to create an online company, and also for my accountant to be able to access it. It is asking for an administrator password, but I have not had one since it started with the 2016 quickbooks mac.
If you want to convert a QuickBooks Mac 2015 file to QuickBooks Online, you must update the company file to the supported version of the software.
This means that you need to restore it to a file that is 3 years higher. This means that you will need to restore the backup to a Mac 2019 file, create another backup copy there, and then restore it to 2021 (2015 > 2018 > 2021).
