open accounts copy

I am using QB pro 2016.  I removed the restrictions before receiving the accountants changes.  How do I open the accountant changes file to manually make changes?  Thanks for your time and help

Hello, @pedalbiker53.


Once you remove the restrictions, the initial Accountant's Copy you've created in QuickBooks will also be voided. Also,once the restriction has been removed, the changes in the current Accountant's Copy will not be imported to the company file.


On the other hand, you can import the changes your accountant made into your account and automatically update your company file. You can refer to this article for step-by-step instructions: Import your accountant's changes into your company file in QuickBooks Desktop.

Hello again, @pedalbiker53.


Right now, manually adding the accountant changes isn't an option. As mentioned by my colleague @IamjuViel, you can import the changes made by your accountant into your account and automatically update it to your company file.


For guidance on how to complete the process of importing, you can open the article provided above. 

I can see how adding this option could help your business exemplify its style. I'll be sure to submit feedback, which is sent to our Product Development Team when considering features to introduce in software updates. QuickBooks is constantly improving thanks to the ideas provided by users, like yourself.

Ask your accountant to prepare the JE data with template like this in XLS

Then you may utilize the 3rd party tool to import them in bulk into your data file


Hope it helps.
