It's nice to see you in the Community space, greenroomla.
Thanks for considering to upgrading from QuickBooks Pro 2018 to QuickBooks Premier 2019. I’d be glad to share some information about the upgrade process.
When changing to a different software version, the first thing to do is install QuickBooks Premier 2019. After performing the installation process, your data from an earlier the version of QuickBooks will update automatically the first time you open the company file in the new version.
That said, there isn’t a need to start from scratch and manually enter the data. All you need to to is restore the existing company file.
Once you're ready to upgrade, I'm adding articles that will guide you through the step by step process:
- Upgrade or convert your company file to a new QuickBooks Desktop version
- How to Install QuickBooks Desktop
The information will help you smoothly convert your software to a new version.
Please know that I'm just a post away if you have questions about QuickBooks. Have a great weekend.
