I would like to upgrade from the 2007 version, but I don't know how to transfer my files.
Hi there, @Russ88.
Thanks for continuing using QuickBooks for your business. I'm here to provide information on how to upgrade QuickBooks from 2007 and convert your company file to a new QuickBooks Desktop version.
There's an Easy Upgrade feature that will automatically create an updated copy of your most recent files if you have an active QuickBooks subscription. You only need to perform the following steps if you have to update additional company files.
To upgrade or convert your company file to a newer version:

With this information, you should be able to install QuickBooks and transfer company files. Let me know how this goes after following the steps above. If you have other questions, don't hesitate to leave a comment below. I'll be glad to answer.
I have qbooks 2007 on my computer. I am trying to help a friend set up the business her parents were running. They were not fully utilizing qbook 2013, so we are creating the company. I was wondering can I create the new company on MY Qbooks 2007 and then import/covert it to her 2013 version? they are a small operation and only have one license, so if I could work on my older version here and then export it into their newer version, that would make things much easier.
Yes, you can do that, TONYAC.
Just a heads up, these versions of QuickBooks Desktop are no longer supported. This may cause some errors and can damage the company data. You'll want to upgrade to the latest version so we can set it up without any issue.
I've included this article for more details about upgrading company files after switching to a new version of QuickBooks Desktop.

Yes, you can, kengeroo.
There are a few things we'll have to do before we can migrate since 2007 to 2020 is a long jump. When upgrading to a higher version we'll need to have a gradually upgrade QuickBooks like from 2007 to 2010 > 2013 > 2017 then 2020 via Portable File Format (backup copy).
You can get in touch with our Customer Support Team and they'll upgrade it for you. Here's how:
