I want to open an Accountant copy sent to me. When I open the FIle menu on QB Enterprise Accountant 19.0 there is no Accountant Copy option

Thanks for dropping by the Community, @RMB.


To open an Accountant's copy (.QBX), you need to convert it to a working file (.QBA) instead. Here's how:


If the Accountant's copy is saved locally:


1. Go back to the File menu.
2. Pick Open and Restore Company on the drop-down.

3. Select Convert an Accountant's Copy Transfer File, then Next until you see the Open Accountant's Copy Transfer File window.

4. Locate the file, then Open it.
5. Choose another location where you want to save it, then hit Save.


On the other hand, if it was sent using the Accountant's Copy File Transfer service (ACFT), check out this article and proceed to download the Accountant's Copy from ACFT for more information: Convert the accountant's copy to an accountant's working file.


I'm also including this article for future reference: Use the Accountant's Copy.


That should point you in the right track. Please let me know how everything goes by leaving a comment below. I'm always here if you have further questions. Have a great rest of the day.
