Revert a QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions (QBES) company file to QuickBooks Pro or Premier

You cannot revert, or downgrade, a QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions (QBES) company file to QuickBooks Pro or QuickBooks Premier (Pro/Premier). When upgrading to Enterprise from Pro/Premier, the database structure expands to accommodate the additional features of QBES. Once the database has been expanded, QuickBooks cannot return the file to a lower edition. QuickBooks Pro/Premier cannot recognize the QBES file structure.

Detailed Information

You can start a new company data file:

  1. Export your lists from the QBES file.
  2. Import your lists into a new company file in QuickBooks Pro or Premier,
  3. On the Intuit Marketplace you can find utilities to assist you in copying transactions from the old QBES file into your new Pro/Premier company file.
    Note: These are not Intuit products and Intuit does not support the claims or functionality of these programs. If you purchase a product and need support, please contact the company from whom you purchased the utility.
