Hi there, @accounting303.


I hope you're enjoying the day so far. I'll be happy to guide you to export your inventory list as you wait for a response from JenoP.


To do this:


  1. Sign in to the company file. 
  2. Open the File menu.
  3. Click Export
  4. Select Lists to IIF
  5. Then choose item list



Now that we have the list exported in IIF format, you'll need to convert the IIF to a CSV file to import into QuickBooks Online. To do this: 


  1. Open Excel.
  2. Open the IIF.
  3. Once the IIF file is open in Excel, click File and Save as
  4. Then you'll choose CSV from the drop-down type. 

Also, if you wish to convert the whole file over to Online at once, check out: Converting a Desktop for Mac file to Online for more details. 


That's all there is to it. Please let me know if you find you need further assistance. I'll be around to help you every step of the way. Take care and have a good one!
