Moving from Quickbooks 2002 to 2014

Hi everyone,

I'm hoping to see if anyone out there has experience or information on how to get a data file from an old version (specifically 2002) to Quickbooks 2014. I tried to find information about data file compatibility through numerous Google searches, but was not able to find any definitive information. I thought for sure Intuit would have something published about this topic, but this is the best article I could find:

Unfortunately, even though the title is exactly what I'm looking for, the information there isn't terribly helpful.

We purchased copies of Quickbooks 2004 and Quickbooks 2006 because I had read that Quickbooks 2004 is needed to allow for import into 2006 or later. So, I know we can at least get that far.

Any information anyone has would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


There is a link to a trial version of QB 2010 if that helps,

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.
