How QuickBooks uses converted data

Where are you converting data from?

Converted data from Quicken

Converted data from Peachtree

Converted data from Small Business Accounting or Office Accounting

The conversion process converts your Peachtree data into a new file in QuickBooks called the company file. Your original Peachtree data files remain unchanged. You can directly convert Peachtree 2001-2006 data folders to QuickBooks company files.

For older versions of Peachtree (prior to the 2001 version), you must do a preliminary conversion into a compatible Peachtree version before you can convert the data to QuickBooks.

Click Convert Data and choose Peachtree to download and install the QuickBooks Conversion Tool.

The QuickBooks Conversion Tool will convert most of your Peachtree data to QuickBooks. However, some data cannot be converted. The QuickBooks Conversion Tool cannot convert Peachtree-specific (user-defined or custom) information.

If you use Quicken for personal and business accounts, but want only business accounts in QuickBooks, prepare your Quicken data first before converting.

When you convert data from Quicken, QuickBooks converts your existing Quicken data into a new file in QuickBooks called the company file.

When you open your new QuickBooks company file, you'll see differences in how QuickBooks shows and uses your Quicken data. Some of these changes are new accounts and new forms you can use for entering data.

Your original Quicken data files do not change in any way. You can continue using Quicken for personal finance and investment accounts, but changes that you make to your Quicken data will not appear in QuickBooks. There is no connection between your Quicken file and your new QuickBooks company file.

The differences you need to know about are:

The conversion process converts your Small Business Accounting or Office Accounting data into a new file in QuickBooks called the company file. Your original Small Business Accounting or Office Accounting data files remain unchanged.

Before you begin, prepare your Small Business Accounting or Office Accounting file for conversion.

Click Convert Data and choose Small Business Accounting or Office Accounting to download and install the QuickBooks Conversion Tool.

The QuickBooks Conversion Tool will convert most of your Small Business Accounting or Office Accounting data to QuickBooks. However, there are some differences between QuickBooks and Small Business Accounting or Office Accounting.
