HI, I have a client that works on Reckon Enterprise on their laptop. I have a backup from Reckon Enterprise and I am trying to upload it to their Hosted file.

I have done this before but it won't work this time. I have opened the clients file in hosted, but when I try to upload it into Hosted, it starts to to upload and then says "upload failed".

What am I doing wrong.

Thanks

DJS

    Hi DJS

    Are you using Internet Explorer by any chance?

    We've got a guide which I'll link below that has some info on how to solve that error message if you're using that specific browser -

    Hi @1578712

    I have opened the clients file in hosted, but when I try to upload it into Hosted, it starts to to upload and then says "upload failed".

    Sorry can I just clarify this part above from your opening post. You've mentioned you've opened the file in Hosted but then are trying to upload it. Are you able to clarify what you meant by "the file opened in Hosted"?

    What type of backup file are you attempting to upload to Hosted? A .qbb or .qbm?


    Can you please try clearing your browser cache and cookies and then retry the upload.

    Sorry one other thing, are you attempting to upload the file to Hosted directly from the USB? If so, then I'd highly recommend that you copy the file to a local destination on your PC first eg. Desktop, My Documents etc and then upload.

    I have cleared the browser cache and cookies. Still couldn't get it to upload.

    I already have an older file I have uploaded this way back in 2021.

    I am trying to upload the last backup file from their computer from 1/5/22.

    The file is a .qbb

    Any other ideas how to do it?

    thanks

    If you can give the team a call on 1300 799 150 (AU) or 0800 933 666 (NZ) our tech team can take a look.
