How do I open a QB 2013 file when I have more current versions of the program?

You can use an old backup copy of the file, newmanap.

 

Once you upgrade the company file to the current QuickBooks version, you can't open it back on QuickBooks 2013. I'd suggest looking for a saved backup copy of the company file that you haven't upgraded yet. Then, restore on QuickBooks 2013 so you can use it.

 

Here's how:

  1. Click File at the top, and then select Open or Restore Company.
  2. Select Restore a backup copy and click Next.
  3. Choose Local Backup and click Next.
  4. From the Look In drop-down, choose the location of the backup file.
  5. Select the file from the folder. The file should appear as [Company Name].qbb.
  6. Click Open and select Next.
  7. From the Save In drop-down, choose the location where you want to save the restored file.
  8. In the File name field, enter a new file name and click Save.

Please let me know if you have follow-up questions on this.
