Step #2: Start your QuickBooks File Update Process:

  1. Check the location of your QuickBooks File and then press F2. A File Information pop-up will appear to give you the exact location of the file.
  2. If you access your QB file using server location, take it in your system’s drive and then update. Updating the file this way is a faster and error-free approach. Once you are done with the update, you can restore it to your server.
  3. It is mandatory to avoid data issues at the time or even after the file conversion. To do so, you need to run the rebuild tool.

Step #3: Time to update your QB company file:

It is mandatory to update your QuickBooks file to the latest version before you use it. Once the update completes, you won’t be able to open the previous version. When you start running the update or upgrade process, QB will ask you to run the backup process first. Follow the on-screen instruction to do so.

  1. All the users, log-out of the QuickBooks Company files.
  2. Now, go to the file menu and then click on Open & Restore Company.
  3. Click on Open a Company File or restore the backup and then click on Next.

Point to be noted: To open the copy of the backup, select it from the local system.

  1. Now, select the company file and then select Open.
  2. Use company administrator credential to log-in to your QuickBooks account. Company files can only be updated with the company admin
  3. Click on the backup now to proceed the backup process.

Point to be noted: you can easily change the location of the backup file. Say, you can change the default location to save the backup.

  1. Click on the Done option when the company file update process completes.
