We have Quickbooks POS 2013 is not exchanging data with Quickbooks pro 2014.

We had to recover our system from backups due to a hardware failure. We setup the QBPOS and QBPro exactly how we had it in the previous setup, however, now the exchange is not sending the last two weeks of data.

POS is saying that it is conducting an exchange but none of the data is showing in Pro.


Hello there, sscrip,

We improved the security of QuickBooks Pro 2014 and QuickBooks POS 2013 over the past years. 

Since you're using the older version account, the QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) service will be discontinued after May 31, 2019.

Your account will continue to work but you will not be able to subscribe to live technical support or any of the other Intuit services that can be integrated with QBDT. See the QuickBooks Desktop service discontinuation (Disco) policy and upgrade information article for more details and other related questions.

In the meantime, you can use the "Find" function (CTRL + F on your keyboard) to look for the transactions in QuickBooks Desktop Pro.

To add, we recommend upgrading your QuickBooks to the latest version to maintain your access to the service, stay more secure and organized. By doing so, POS will exchange data with QBDT with no issue.

Here's how to get the latest version:

  1. Go to https://downloads.quickbooks.com/app/qbdt/products.
  2. From the Select Country drop-down, select United States (US).
  3. From the Select Product drop-down, select QuickBooks Desktop Pro.
  4. From the Select Version, select 2019.
  5. Click Search.
  6. Click Get the latest updates.
  7. Click Save File to save the exe. file to a specific folder.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
