Save Time, Reduce Errors, and Improve Accuracy

Dancing Numbers helps small businesses, entrepreneurs, and CPAs to do smart transferring of data to and from QuickBooks Desktop. Utilize import, export, and delete services of Dancing Numbers software.

You can use multiple versions in case you are using QuickBooks for so long. Another case is if you are an accountant with many clients of QuickBooks Desktop so you can use older and newer versions of QuickBooks Desktop on the same computer.

Here is the process that helps you to install each edition or version one at a time. This is done when you or the user have multiple editions (Pro, Premier, or Enterprise) or versions (years) on one computer.

Things to Consider Before Starting

  • The same versions of QuickBooks Enterprise, Premier, and Pro can be installed on one computer.
  • You can’t exchange data between QuickBooks versions (years) either. Between QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise and QuickBooks Desktop Pro or Premier, you can’t simply transfer data or corporate files.
  • Install files are the same for QuickBooks Desktop Pro and Premier. The QuickBooks Pro and Premier versions cannot be installed on the same system if they are the same version (year). Different versions, however, can be installed. (For example, Premier 2019 and Pro 2018).
  • Each version of QuickBooks Desktop can only have one industry-specific edition installed. Only one of QuickBooks Desktop Premier 2018 Retail or Premier 2018 Contractor can be used on the same system.
  • You can use the QuickBooks Desktop of different versions at once. The user can also use Premier 2018 if you’re functioning in Premier 2019. If you use the Accountant version, you can only open Premier and Enterprise versions from the same year.
  • QuickBooks regional editions and versions cannot be mixed and matched. A web hosting service or a virtual machine can be used to establish an environment for each area if you require numerous regions on the same computer.
