I have QB 2012 Enterprise installed on Server 2008 and want to upgrade to QB 2020 Enterprise on server 2019. Will I be able to upgrade directly to 2020 Enterprise from 2012 (Latest R#) without having to do interim database upgrades along the way? Or is there a Tool to do this for me?
The company has been shuttered for awhile but the database contains some important information they want access to going forward as the new entity.
