If you want my help, you need to answer my questions.
I asked you what version you had and clearly stated that what you want to do can only be done in certain versions.

Do you have Starter, Deluxe, Premier, Home and Business, or Rentals?
Please go to Help>About.
What release number are you on

Have you been able to restore your backup file from your thumb drive?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have Home & Business. I have Keystone thumb drive. I am not familar with release number. I am not a computer person. Someone else does a lot of this for me. Now I am on my own. The computer shows I have backed up. I have not tried to restore and I do no know if it is on thumb drive. How can I tell?

 

I also need to get the person back who has been working with me on making a P & L. I may have accidentally answered wrong and they are no longer with me. I need them back.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am still waiting.
Expert:  DrQuickBooksnQuicken replied 2 years ago.

I see you have Quicken Home and Business 2012.

What year did you create your backups in?

Have you copied them over from the thumb or flash drive to my documents.

What operating system are you using XP, Vista, or Windows 7?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Backup made in 2012 This is for 2011 info

I have not copied them over to my documents. That I do not know about.

Operating system is Windows 7

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Can you tell me Where to find the P & I then come back to the backup?
Expert:  DrQuickBooksnQuicken replied 2 years ago.
Once you have restored your data file, you can find your reports under Business>Business Reports.

To restore your file, copy the entire contents of your flash drive to Documents under the Start Menu. You might want to make a folder with the name Flash Backup.

Then open up your Quicken program. Go to File>Backup and Restore>Restore from your backup and go to your most recent back up file in that folder.

BTW, we aren't on 24/7. You might want to show a little more patient. Experts have families, jobs, businesses, and are helping other customers.
