Migrating from QBO to QB Accountant Desktop 2022

I exported the data from QBO, and have the qbxml.

I have access to QB Accountant Desktop 2022, but I cannot install additional applications, like the conversion tool, which requires QB Desktop to be running when you convert. So that won't work

I attempted top install a trial version of QB Enterprise Solutions on a machine I can install apps to, but that is not compatible with QB Accountant Desktop, and there is no Trial version for QB Accountant Desktop. I created the "Portable" version of the file, but it is not portable, it only works on QB Enterprise Solutions.  How do I get my data into QB Accountant Desktop 2022?????

Migrating from QBO to QB Accountant Desktop 2022

Let me help you migrate to QuickBooks Desktop, Greg_.

 

It looks like you're referring to the migration tool. To use this utility, you must be the QuickBooks Administrator. Then, you must have Windows Admin privileges for the computer where QuickBooks will be installed, which must also have Internet connectivity. 

 

Once everything looks good, try to export and convert your QuickBooks Online data to QuickBooks Desktop again.

 

Feel free to get back to this thread if you need more help. We're one comment away. Take care!

@greg_ 

What kind of "portable" file do you have? Is it QBM or else?
