quickbooks conversion tool

I am attempting to convert Sage 50 to QuickBooks and when I convert, there is nothing in the QuickBooks database for me to open the company with. I really do not want to have to input my whole large company unless I have to

Hello there, @Beauregard Arc FD.


Let me help share information about converting Sage 50 into QuickBooks Desktop.


There are a few reminders you'll need to check before running the conversion tool in QuickBooks Desktop.


These are the following: 


  • Ensure that your Sage 50 and QuickBooks Desktop are installed locally in the same computer.
  • Be sure that your QuickBooks database and Sage 50's associated files are saved locally in your computer's hard drive.
  • Cross-region conversion isn't' possible using the tool.
  • Check our QuickBooks Desktop system requirements to make sure your computer is up to date for your QuickBooks.


Once you already verified, you can start converting the file again. For the step-by-step process, you may refer to this article: Use Sage conversion tool to convert to QuickBooks Desktop.


If you need further assistance with the process, I'd suggest reaching out to our Customer Support Team. They have the tools like screen-sharing that can walk you through the process and verify if you encounter any error upon converting your data.


To contact us, here's how:

After you create your company file, you can click this article to get started with QuickBooks Desktop. It provides topics that will help you enter information and navigate your account.


I'll be around if you need a hand on this or if you have any other questions. Take good care.
