    No. Historically, QuickBooks has not been backwards compatible.

    so i'm guessing i'll have to get quickbooks 2007 installed on another computer, open the files and do a save as -> quickbooks 2003 file? Does it allow one to do this? (ms word, excel do allow)

    Accepted Solution

    If you can't Save As an earlier version, you may be able to Export the data to an Excel Spreadsheet, and import that into the earlier version. Or, re-input the data if it's not too much.
