00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:04,000

So first thing we’ll do is make a backup copy.

 

2

00:00:04,000 –> 00:00:08,000

No audio – Screen Display Only

 

3

00:00:08,000 –> 00:00:11,333

No audio – Screen Display Only

 

4

00:00:11,333 –> 00:00:16,000

I’m just going to save this to the desktop because I will

 

5

00:00:16,000 –> 00:00:20,000

not be using it after today, hopefully.

 

6

00:00:20,000 –> 00:00:24,000

No audio – Screen Display Only

 

7

00:00:24,000 –> 00:00:28,000

No audio – Screen Display Only

 

8

00:00:28,000 –> 00:00:32,000

No audio – Screen Display Only

 

9

00:00:32,000 –> 00:00:36,000

Okay so know that I have a backup copy saved, I’m going

 

10

00:00:36,000 –> 00:00:40,000

to do my conversion.

 

11

00:00:40,000 –> 00:00:44,000

So, we’ll go to File> Utilities

 

12

00:00:44,000 –> 00:00:50,000

and then Copy Company File for QuickBooks Mac

 

13

00:00:50,000 –> 00:00:55,966

Looks like your QuickBooks for Windows might be a better fit for your company here’s why.

 

14

00:00:55,966 –> 00:00:56,000

 

 

15

00:00:56,000 –> 00:01:00,266

QuickBooks for Mac is great for light inventory needs, but

 

16

00:01:00,266 –> 00:01:03,000

doesn’t support complex inventory needs

 

17

00:01:03,000 –> 00:01:06,566

like using units of measure assembly

 

 

18

00:01:06,566 –> 00:01:10,566

items or a manufacturer part numbers

 

19

00:01:10,566 –> 00:01:14,566

I don’t need those so much

 

20

00:01:14,566 –> 00:01:18,566

These features aren’t available, so

 

21

00:01:18,566 –> 00:01:22,566

here are the items in there that might you might

 

 

 

22

00:01:22,566 –> 00:01:26,566

want to consider.   If you’ve got custom

 

23

00:01:26,566 –> 00:01:31,766

forms or custom reports you have to create them in QuickBooks for Mac

 

24

00:01:31,766 –> 00:01:34,733

So, that’s not the end of the world, but we want to make sure

 

25

00:01:34,733 –> 00:01:38,566

you know about it.   So, do we still want to go?  Yeah.

 

26

00:01:38,566 –> 00:01:45,100

You see the file is the CompanyName.Mac.qbb

 

27

00:01:45,100 –> 00:01:48,233

We’re going to Save that.

 

 

28

00:01:48,233 –> 00:01:50,566

No audio – Screen Display Only

 

29

00:01:50,566 –> 00:01:54,566

No audio – Screen Display Only

 

30

00:01:54,566 –> 00:01:58,966

You have successfully exported your Company File

 

31

00:01:58,966 –> 00:02:01,700

They’re telling us where it is.  It’s under

 

32

00:02:01,700 –> 00:02:06,566

Company Files>Vicki .  It’s here Users> Public Documents

 

33

00:02:06,566 –> 00:02:12,100

>Intuit> QuickBooks> Company Files> ….Ok, so it’s pretty in-depth

 

34

00:02:12,100 –> 00:02:14,566

We need to be able to find that.

 

35

00:02:14,566 –> 00:02:21,200

You’re going to want to save it to a drive that you can use on your Mac

 

36

00:02:21,200 –> 00:02:26,466

I’m going to put it on my OneDrive and it should be accessible through my Mac

 

37

00:02:26,466 –> 00:02:26,566

 

 

38

00:02:26,566 –> 00:02:28,366

 

 

39

00:02:28,366 –> 00:02:34,733

You can see that I’ve made a folder for this to go into

 

40

00:02:34,733 –> 00:02:37,533

So whenever I get over to my Mac I can find it.

 

41

00:02:37,533 –> 00:02:43,866

The instructions that we had earlier for where the file went is

 

 

42

00:02:43,866 –> 00:02:43,966

 

 

43

00:02:43,966 –> 00:02:52,233

This PC>C>Users>Public>Public Documents>Intuit>QuickBooks>Company Files

 

44

00:02:52,233 –> 00:02:52,333

 

 

45

00:02:52,333 –> 00:02:57,066

and then you need to find the one that’s the Mac

 

46

00:02:57,066 –> 00:02:57,100

 

 

47

00:02:57,100 –> 00:03:02,466

Drag it over to our OneDrive and we’re going to put in our folder

 

48

00:03:02,466 –> 00:03:06,666

or whichever drive you have that you’re going to use.

 

49

00:03:06,666 –> 00:03:09,866

Once that’s done we can move over to our Mac.

 

50

00:03:09,866 –> 00:03:09,899
