Importing and Exporting Data

I'm here to help you move your company data from QuickBooks Desktop to Online, @usergy.


Converting your data from the desktop to online is available for QuickBooks Canada, US, and UK versions. 


You can start by creating a backup copy of your 9-year old company data before converting it to the latest version of QuickBooks Desktop. Here's how:

  1. Download and install a trial version of the latest QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Open your company file and then go to the File menu.
  3. Select Open or Restore Company.
  4. Choose Restore a backup copy.
  5. Find and open the backup copy of your 9-year old company data.
  6. Click Open.
  7. Choose Save.

Once done, go back to the File menu and select Copy Company File for QuickBooks Online under Utilities. You can read through this article for the detailed steps: Move your QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online.
