how do I import Quickbooks 2006 into Quickbooks 2013

I am trying to convert from Quicken 2004 into QuickBooks 2013 via Quickbooks 2006 and keep getting error reading "You can't use a previously existing Basic company file with QuickBooks 2013 SimpleStart edition. You must either: upgrade this edition of Quickbooks 2014 to Basic, or create a new company file and start from scratch".

    Where in the process are you getting this message, on conversion from quicken to QB 2006 or QB 2006 to QB 2013.
    Qb 2006 will be pro version so suspect its the QB 2013 simple start that is giving this message.
    • Hi thanks for taking the trouble to reply. You are correct. I was trying to import into QB 2013 Simplestart from QB 2006 Regular which I am told is really QB Pro hence the problem.

    Considering we haven't even released QB 2014 yet..... I would suggest contacting installation assistance at 866-676-9666 or tech support at 888-320-7276.

     

    If you need anything, ask more questions.

    Hope that helps.

    • The 2014 must be a typo.

    People come to Small Business Community 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.
