bobroosth: Odd. I have seen QB upgrade data between very distant versions.
I mistyped...'-}}

What I meant to say about QuickBooks is that while you can indeed move older QuickBook version data to a newer QuickBook version, you can't go backwards; that is, once the older version data has been converted to the newer version, QuickBooks does not allow (hasn't coded) you to open that converted-to-new-version data file in an older version of QuickBooks.

On one level, it's somewhat understandable but, given QuickBooks' corporate procedures--blocking legitimate transfer of a QB license to another user while stating that license transfer is allowed--my take is that it's greed on the part of QuickBooks corporate since there is no programmable/technical reason to not be backwards compatible. And, since QuickBooks is essentially the defacto software for bookkeeping/payroll, one is required to defer to their approach.

My sister uses QuickBooks for all of her clients and has various versions installed based on each client's needs.
