After installing a new version of QuickBooks, you update your company data file by opening it in the new version. This process updates company files from any older version of QuickBooks to the newer one.

About updating your data file

  • Do not update over a network. Be sure the company data file is stored on the same computer you are using to update it. You might need to copy the file from another computer, and then copy it back after you finish updating it.
  • Only the Admin user can update the file (QuickBooks Pro, Premier, and Enterprise only). If you never created other users and roles in QuickBooks, you are automatically the Admin user. If you see the message, "The company file needs to be updated. Please ask your QuickBooks administrator to update the file," you are not signed in to your data file as the Admin user.
  • After updating your data file, it does not open in previous versions of QuickBooks. QuickBooks automatically backs up your data file before updating it, in case you need to revert to the older version. You can always restore the backup to your old version of QuickBooks if necessary. Or, if you need to restart the update, you can restore the backup to your new version of QuickBooks.
  • You cannot convert QuickBooks Enterprise data to QuickBooks Simple Start, Pro, or Premier. Enterprise data files only work in Enterprise editions of QuickBooks. However, you can covert a Simple Start, Pro or Premier file to QuickBooks Enterprise, but the company file will not open in Simple Start, Pro or Premier after you convert it.
  • If you are not comfortable with the procedures please contact us 24 / 7 at (414) 350-0024
