Convert a company file from QuickBooks for Mac

You can convert a company file from QuickBooks for Mac Pro, version 2009, to QuickBooks Pro or Premier for Windows format.

Will all of my data be converted?

Due to feature differences between the Windows and Macintosh editions, some data will not be converted. If you transfer data back and forth between the two platforms, you should carefully check the integrity of your data file.

To do this task

  1. Verify that you have QuickBooks for Mac Pro, version 2009.

    To see which version of QuickBooks for Mac you have, open the application and press Command+1.

    What if I have an earlier version of QuickBooks for Mac?

    To convert a company file created in an earlier version of QuickBooks for Mac, you can either:

    • Upgrade to QuickBooks for Mac 2007 or later and then convert the file to Windows format, as described in this topic.

      or

    • Use QuickBooks for Windows 2006 to convert the Mac file to Windows format.

  2. In QuickBooks for Mac, create a backup of your company file.

    To create a backup in QuickBooks for Mac 2009, go to the File menu and click Backup to QuickBooks for Windows.

  3. Name the company file and save it to disk.

    A copy of the Mac file is formatted for Windows and saved as a backup (.qbb) file.

  4. In QuickBooks Pro or Premier for Windows, restore the backup of the file you created in step 2.
