How to convert an AccountEdge datafile to QuickBooks

Migrating from one accounting package to another can be a daunting process. These procedures are very time consuming and will have you switching back and forth between exporting, tweaking what has been exported, importing into QuickBooks, and re-tweaking what has been imported. Miss a step and you might find yourself starting over.

Getting assistance from professionals is very important if you are to migrate seamlessly from one software to another. Conversion specialists like E-tech access the data directly from a copy of your MYOB or AccountEdge file and reformat it so it can be directly entered into QuickBooks programmatically. There is also no guesswork about what will be converted. Standard lists (customers, vendors, employees, accounts, items, shipping methods, customer messages, payment terms, categories and jobs) and the open posting transactions (unpaid invoices, unpaid bills and unused credits) are all transferred so you won’t be left wondering if you missed receiving a payment from a client or forgot to pay a bill.

Non-posting transactions (estimates, purchase orders, and sales orders), as well as Inventory quantities and values, are also transferred. Journal entries are then made for each fiscal year end to keep the balance sheet as well as profit and loss the same in the QuickBooks file as they were in the AccountEdge file.

E-tech works with all versions of AccountEdge by Acclivity for US and Canada and can return the migrated data in a QuickBooks file suitable for the desktop version on a PC or Mac as well as the online edition.

The conversion process typically takes between one and two days to complete depending on the size of your file and is not just an automated process. Upon completion of the order for conversion service, a file upload account will be automatically created and an email sent with your login information to upload your file to our secure server. The data file is converted and returned using the same upload account. It is recommended that you compress your file with WinZip or WinRar prior to uploading it as a smaller file as it will upload much faster and avoid any timeout issues that can occur with large files.
