Welcome Ric,

There are no options to backup just a part of the company file - the whole file is backed up.  


regards,
John

Thanks John, that's what I thought but when I do a backup it only picks up the original year 2002-3 and not all the subsequent years.  I can't see how to change parameters to backup all transactions etc

Hi Ric,
I just wanted to clarify some details around the product as "QuickBooks Lite First Business" doesn't seem to be a name we've used.

In your menu bar, head over to Help > About QuickBooks, is there any reference to Intuit Inc. or Reckon Limited there?

Let us know,

Cheers
Rav

From your history page: http://www.reckon.com.au/aboutus/OurHistory.aspx

this statement "QuickBooks Lite 2002, an entry level accounting package which integrates GST tracking with BAS, debuts in June."

Thanks for that Ric, sorry about that I just couldn't see it in our normal listings.

Try giving this a go,

Firstly, create a copy of your company file and then paste it into a external memory source (USB stick, external hard drive).

Then Open the company file, create a backup and save it to your desktop. Then restore that backup, give it a different name and preferably a different location ie. maybe for your desktop or C drive for example.

Now open that restored company file. Does it have the same information as your original file?

Let me know

Cheers
Rav

Hi Rav, how do create a copy of the company file?  And are you saying to open the copied file or the original? I'm confused

Sorry Ric, what I meant to say was make a copy of your file name in Windows Explorer ie. just the regular Windows copy option.
Open the original file and back that up to the desktop (or some other destination)

Cheers
