Available in Microsoft Office Accounting Professional 2008 only.
The Convert from QuickBooks Wizard allows you to import and convert data from QuickBooks to Microsoft Office Accounting 2008. When migrating a company file from QuickBooks, you have the option of importing master records only or all data. All data migrations import both master records and individual transactions. For additional information, see Differences between master records and all data QuickBooks migrations.
Note: Reconciled bank transactions in QuickBooks are migrated to Accounting 2008 as unreconciled. You must mark these items as reconciled in account registers to maintain accurate statement reconciliations in the future. To do so, on a Bank Account Register form, on the Actions menu, point to Mark as, and then click Reconciled.
If you have more than one company to migrate to Accounting 2008, you must complete the Convert from QuickBooks Wizard for each company.
Note: Review the list of supported QuickBooks versions.
