Import data from quickbooks desktop

Hi there, useraccounts8.


Let me walk you through how to import the data from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online.


We need to make sure first that your QuickBooks Desktop is updated. This is to avoid errors in converting the data.

  1. Go to the Help menu and select Update QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Select Get Updates to start the download.
  3. When the download finishes, restart QuickBooks.
  4. Accept the option to install the new release when prompted.

Please note that you can import a company file within 60 days after signing up to QuickBooks Online. Follow the detailed steps on the Step 2 section of this article: Move your QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online.


Here are some of the links you'll want to check for more details:

Keep on posting if you have more questions. We'll respond as soon as we can.
