Microsoft Dynamics is the accounting software made by Microsoft. If you are using this software from Microsoft and want to use QuickBooks, you will get the help to use the dynamics file data in QuickBooks. It is not feasible to directly run the Dynamics file in QuickBooks, but it is possible after converting the file to be run on the QuickBooks software.
All Microsoft Dynamics Accounting versions can be migrated to QuickBooks or QuickBooks Online with 100% accuracy. The conversion will guarantee the Profit and Loss, Trial Balance, and Balance sheets in QuickBooks will exactly match your Dynamics Accounting data. All other financial reports, including Aging A/R, Aging A/P, will match as well.
Converting Microsoft Dynamics to QuickBooks is not the most straightforward do-it-yourself project for companies to manage. An implementation from one software to another will never be an overnight task since there are many constituents that need to be taken into consideration, such as Vendor List, Customer List, Inventory List, Average costs, Costs, Chart of Accounts, Accounts Receivable, etc. It is crucial to have a trusted team help you and your business with converting your financial data from an ERP system.
QuickBooks Online helps you locate critical financial data and transfer the data at no cost. On the other side, Microsoft Dynamics offers the same ease of access, same ease of use, and quick familiarity to all its users but adds in a robust system that can manage all of your expected growth, with no false limits on the records numbers.
The database is secured with no direct access, so there are no more changes under the covers. Banks, Auditors, and regulators can all have more prominent confidence in your statements and reports, knowing that the data cannot be altered behind the scenes.

Things to keep in mind before Importing and Converting data.
If you run your financial data on your QuickBooks Desktop, there are some crucial steps to take and things to keep in mind before you start the conversion:
Before you start converting your company file into QuickBooks Online, ensure that you are using QuickBooks Desktop 2016 or the newest version. If you’re running an older version, download the latest QuickBooks Desktop version and update your company data. If you are not sure of the version you’re using, then press F2 on your keyboard, and a product information screen shows up revealing your QuickBooks product and version.
Sign in to your QuickBooks Desktop as an administrator, and then select Help Menu. Click on Update QuickBooks Desktop from the drop-down menu, and click on Update Now.
Start your conversion process by signing up for QuickBooks Online. Once you sign up, then log in to your QuickBooks Online account, create a company profile, and complete any of the welcome fields. Make sure not to enter any other data in this step.
Fix any existing errors and issues with your QuickBooks Desktop inventory before importing to prevent loss of data.
The conversion process is automated, and there is nothing you can do in QuickBooks Online until the process is finished.
During the conversion, data from QuickBooks Desktop will replace existing information in your QuickBooks Online. A warning message pops up on your screen before the process overwrites any of your data.
Run Payroll Data
You might need to run payroll and pay taxes before converting. Make sure to mark any employees who no longer work for your company as inactive and fill out all the crucial data about your current employees. However, gender and other personal data are not necessary for QuickBooks Desktop. However, QuickBooks Online needs all your data about your employees before you can be working with the payroll.
Before getting begun on the conversion process, run a Balance Sheet and a Profit and Loss Report in QuickBooks Desktop. You need to review these documents after the conversion is finished to make sure all data is transferred accurately.
Backup Your Data
You might need to create a backup of your file to restore your current data in case you need to start over with the conversion process, then click on the file, then switch your QuickBooks Desktop to a sole user. Now that your computer is a single-user mode, click on Backup Company and select Create Local Backup.
Now specify where you want to save your data, and follow other prompts on your screen before saving your information.
Export Your Company File
Now that you have updated your QuickBooks Desktop program and prepared and backed up your file, you are ready to start the conversion.
In your QuickBooks Desktop software, select the Company Menu. Then, click on Export Company File to QuickBooks Online, and a window pops up on your screen, asking you to log in to QuickBooks Online. Follow the prompts on your screen to import any inventory data.
Complete the Conversion Process
The conversion then starts automatically. In some instances, you can finish the conversion process in as little as an hour, depending on the size of your file. If your files are very large, then the process can take up to 24 hours. Make sure to select No if a “slow scripting error” shows on your system’s screen to avoid halting the whole process.
As you don’t have to do anything during the conversion, it is fine to let it run undisturbed while you take care of your other tasks outside of QuickBooks Online. You can expect to receive an email to confirm that QuickBooks Desktop’s conversion to QuickBooks Online is complete.
Check Your Data
Once the conversion is completed, make sure to check your pre conversion and post conversion Profit and Loss Reports to double-check that all the information is transferred successfully. Compare the statements looking for any discrepancies. Once everything is checked, you can then go through the guided tour to understand the navigation process and check how to add your accountant and customize your QuickBooks Online reports.
