View Full Version : Very new user . . . Question about set-up
12-17-2001, 10:14 PM
I've never used QuickBooks before. I will be working mostly from home. I will need to be able to set up the company on my home PC. (The company is already set up in the office and we are not networked) Is there a way to get the general set-up info onto my PC? After the set up is done, I will enter the data and was hoping to store it to disk and take it into the office and upload. Is there any way to do this?
I have tons to learn about this software - I'll probably be here often! Thanks for any insight.

yes you should be able to copy the files from home and upload them as long as you have seem versions on both home and work
comp.you should copy the files from your home on floopy or cd
copy do not do a backup this will not work on other comp as far
as i know copy the files from home then when you get to work
you can upload them in the folder you need them in you do this
by click on open to open your files on disks then you can drag
and drop them were you want them the first few times is a little
scare but it gets better with time i hope i have help you and not

i am glad i was able to help you maybe you have god bless day
Making a backup copy instead of a regular copy will work fine and will save some time moving the file back and forth. Make a backup on one computer and restore it on the other computer. Then make a new backup from the second computer and restore it on the first computer. You will need to overwrite the old copy of the file on the first computer as long as you are restoring it to the same place on the computer as it was before. In fact, in order to avoid having extra (old) copies of the data file, you should make sure you always restore the file on both computers to the same place on each computer.
Also, be aware that if you upgrade QB on one computer (even a free patch during the year) you must make the same upgrade on the other computer or it won't read the file.
