further to MontanaKarl's post - we have a desktop version of QB and would like to move to Online - can Intuit tell us why the UK version won't support a desktop data import?  Surely not having this option pretty much makes QBO pointless?  I note you have kept MontanaKarl waiting for a month without any answer - I hope you an answer this one (and cover his too!).

 

I will keep my fingers crossed to see if there is any response - otherwise I think we will have to try another solution and move away from Intuit products.  Such a shame.

Pretty confusing...

I just signed up for a 30 day demo of the UK edition because my company needs multicurrency support, and the US edition of QBO does not support multiple currencies...

BUT...the UK QBO does not offer the "Import QB Desktop data" option - only the option to import lists in Excel format.  Why can't there be one global edition with both features - multicurrency AND desktop data import?

 

Second - the article says that there is a size limit on the file and if it is too large, only lists get imported.  What is this size limit?  Not having all data is not an option.

Please disregard my question. I don't have a pc or access to one and am not going to buy a copy of windows just to convert my data.  If intuit wanted mac users to convert to online then they would make it easier. I tried to sign up for their mobile credit card system last month and was promised multiple call backs, none of which ever happened.  POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!

Hi,

I cannot see any option in Company->More as "Import QuickBooks Desktop Data". There is simply Import Data and Export Data. Can I only import Lists or company file also from Quickbooks desktop to Quickbooks online?

 

Regards,

Hi - Is there a way to import data from 2 QB Desktop databases (on two different computers) to QB Online Plus? I've already imported data from one computer, but when I tried to import the other database it said it would replace the data already imported.

 

Any suggestions would be helpful.

 

Thank you.

Dear Amy,

When switching from quickbooks desktop to quickbooks online, should you reconcile the desktop version first?

Hi Mark. When you convert a file from QB desktop to QBO it becomes completely cloud based. This changes the database structure so significantly that you would not be able to sync the two. Make sure if you're considering this, that you understand what you have with the desktop version that is critical to your business so you can evaluate whether or not QBO can meet those needs in the same way.

 

I hope this helps but please follow up if you have other questions!

 @Rheymann Hi Rheymann! Because QBO is browser based and not OS based, you could use it on either a Mac or a PC. If the file is on QuickBooks for Mac, the file would need to be converted to the Online version. I hope this answers your question!
