Hello jen,

The QBM file is a portable company file. You can still import that file to QuickBooks Online. You'll have to open that file in your QuickBooks Desktop, and just follow the usual export process. Here's the article with detailed steps: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1145375. However, there are import limitations. Check this article out: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1145236.

Let me know if you need something else. Have a great day!

What if you cant download into desktop because your desktop isn't right version? My accountant sent to me and My version is older than hers.

hi @htsw ,

You can use QB 2019 Pro Trial License or QBES 2019 Trial license to convert QBM to QBW prior importing it into QBO.

Wrong answer. That file you referenced is for moving files between QB Online and QB Desk Top. The question is, how to open a QBM file off a flashdrive into QB Online........nothing to do with QB Desk Top!

You have to restore the QBM (or QBB) file on QB Desktop to get the QBW file prior to migrating to QB Online.

I just purchased QB online version and my accountant uses the QB desktop version. She emailed me a portable Qb file that I cannot open. How do I open the file she sent me, if possible?

Install the trial license of QBD 2020 to open the file.

You may migrate the data to your QBO account later.
