Hi Simon,

We recommend you make use of the Reckon Accounts 2019 desktop software.

What information are you trying to bring from the newer Hosted 2019 to the much older desktop Reckon Accounts 2012 product?

I just wanted to bring across my Customer List, Items List, Class List and maybe a few other lists....

Hi Simon,

Exporting from newer software and attempting to bring data to older versions of the software is not recommended.

Repairing data problems caused by importing newer format to older software would likely cost more than simply using the current version software.

Try exporting the lists individually.

Then before you start using the data file, ensure you have thoroughly checked that the data you have imported is correct.

How do I know whether the data is correct? What would make it incorrect or corrupted?

You should be able to visually compare the records if you open both applications.
Example: If you have a Customer record in the source data file that has name, address, phone, email, etc. Then the same info should be present when you import it into the destination data file.
