Upgrading from QuickBooks Enterprise 5.0 to SBA


D

Douglas Cole

We are trying to upgrade from QuickBooks Enterprise 5.0 to SBA 2006 SP1.
It is a rather large (629 Meg) database file that was validated and
exported from Quickbooks. However, whenever we try to import we get
this error: "File is Invalid"

Our best guess is that the file it too big, has anyone else had that
problem or is there something else going on that we haven't thought of.

Thanks!

File invalid usually indicates that the QB file needs to be rebuilt.

Open up you company in QB and press the Ctrl key plus the 1 key. You will
see a screen that shows infomation about your data file. I believe SBA will
not import transations from any QB file with more than 17,000 transations.

We've rebuilt it several times, but I believe the more then 17,000
transactions is our problem.

Thanks much!

Confirmed, we have 80,000+ transactions.

I do not know if this would help but you may be able to live with part of
your QB detail by archiving via a "compress" or "purge" function of prior
years. This may reduce the # of transaactions to level where a converison is
possible.
