Your Reckon Payroll Premier company data file set would be comprised of multiple files with the same name with different file extensions.

<Filename>.<file extension>

Example:



Your Payroll Premier data file would normally be stored in the “DATA” folder.

 

The file you need to send us is the one with the QPW file extension

– this is the main data file component

- it would usually be larger than the other files in the data folder

Example file name: My Company File.QPW 

– it may also appear with the name "My Company File" not displaying the QBW file extension

 

Backup file sets you should consider sending to us if available

– these backup file sets can be found on your computer locally, on a remote network attached storage/server computer or on an external storage device.

Your Payroll Premier backup files would normally be stored in the “BACKUP” folder

 


Example file names:

My Company File.QPB – this is a user created company backup file

My Company File.CMP – this is a company backup supplementary file

My Company File.INI – this is a company backup configuration file

 

My Company File.001 – this is a backup file created after a pay run

My Company File.002 – this is a backup file created after a pay run

My Company File.003 – this is a backup file created after a pay run

My Company File.004 – this is a backup file created after a pay run

My Company File.005 – this is a backup file created after a pay run
