QB Issue Resolution:

Let me help provide an option on how you can upload QuickBooks portable file into QuickBooks Online (QBO).


You can download the free trail of QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) so you can upload your portable file. Before doing so, make sure your computer meets minimum requirements to install QuickBooks.


Once the QBDT free trial installed, here’s how you can restore your portable company file:

  1. From the File menu, select Open or Restore Company.
  2. Select Restore a portable file, then select Next.
  3. Select the portable copy (.qbm), then select Open.
  4. Read through the Where do you want to restore the file? page, then select Next.
  5. Choose the location where you want to restore your portable file. You can change the name of the portable file to prevent it from overwriting your existing file.
  6. Click Save.

Right after, you can now import your QuickBooks for Windows company file to QBO by following the detailed steps in this article: Move your QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online.


If you need further assistance with the steps, I recommend contacting our Customer Support Team so they can do a remote session.
