Converting from Quickbooks 2005 to Peachtree 2005 ?!?

    Hi,

    I am trying to convert from my quickbooks 2005 to peachtree 2005.

    To avoid the flames, I will explain why: I love quickbooks, but it
    doesn't let me do large build lists, which makes my inventory really
    complicated. I build electronics assemblies that have hundreds of
    parts. I really need to go to peachtree (premium manufacturing).

    Is there any way to do this? I have exported the IIF files, but there's
    no way I can find to import them in Peachtree... and there's also no
    way to read the 2005 quickbooks file. We upgraded to 2005 near the end
    of the year.

    I have the support plan with Peachtree (we didn't register this until
    this week - sat on it for a year, as the task was too large, and the
    inventory issue wasn't killing us yet), but they told me - YOU NEED TO
    UPGRADE TO 2006 for 399.00 or 2007 for 499.00.

    Is there any other way?

    Mike

    I am not real familiar with Quickbooks, but can you export the
    information to text files or to Excel. If you can you can import this
    to Peachtree to set up.

    You would need a file for
    *Chart of accounts
    GL Transactions
    *Vendor information
    AP Transactions
    *Customer Setup
    AR Transactions
    *Inventory Set up

    Do the * items first with the chart of accounts first. The key is
    getting the information out of Quickbooks. If Quickbooks does not do a
    text or Excel export, you can probably use some reports that you print
    to file that can be "massaged" to work. It is not difficult, but it
    can be tedious.
