Customer Question

I am currently running Quickbooks Pro (Canada) 2013 on a PC but am changing from PC to Mac. I cannot seem to figure out how to get my Quickbooks Pro Mac to recognize the backup files from the PC version. How do I do this.
Very Very frustrating because when I call for Help from Quick Books back east they tell me there is not a version for Mac, but I have it.

Help, Help Help..

It does not work that way the pc and mac versions are different. To transfer it over you want to create a portable file and then restore the portable file.

This link has instructions for creating and restoring portable files.
