Let's define the terms "Version" and "Edition" in the QuickBooks lexicon:
You must update your QuickBooks company file to work in a newer versions of QuickBooks. This is not difficult, but you must be aware of the following information:
Note: If you installed the newer QuickBooks version on top of the older version, you will need to reinstall the older version of QuickBooks in a new folder, instead of the default folder. For example: C:\PROGRAM FILES\INTUIT\QB 2010 PRO. You can then restore the old, pre-conversion backup.
If this information does not answer your question, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free. You can contact an agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.
