What data doesn't come over from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online? If you are migrating from QuickBooks Desktop, this guide can help you understand if the data is simply not supported, or why it changed.

This is a comprehensive list of features that are not specifically converted. For a condensed version, please see What's not imported when you move from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online?

To easily confirm if a feature is not converted:

  1. Open your browser's Find function using Ctrl+F (Windows) or Cmd+F (Mac), or from your browser's menu.
  2. Enter keywords related to your missing data type to see if they're included in our list of import limitations (Examples of keywords include: reconcile, online bill payment, and estimate).
  3. If they are included, read the explanation to see if it answers your question.
  4. If they aren't included, please use the in-product feedback to let us know.

Size limitation when converting from Desktop to Online

While QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise and QuickBooks Online do not have list limits, a size limit exists when you convert from Desktop to Online. To convert to QuickBooks Online, your Desktop company file must have less than 350,000 targets.

To determine how many targets are in your file, press F2 or Ctrl+1 on your keyboard, then check Total Targets under File Information.

US only: If you exceed the size limit, you need to condense your file to successfully import it to QuickBooks Online.
