Can you open a QuickBooks Enterprise file using QuickBooks Pro?

Posted on 2009-12-22

I have a client who's QuickBooks file was created on QB Enterprise 2007 ed.  We backed up the file and tried to restore/open it in QB Pro 2010 but was not able to.  We received a message stating that we could not open a file created in QuickBooks Enterprise with QuickBooks Pro 2010.

Is there a way to convert the file to open and be used in QuickBooks Pro 2010?

Customer is running WinXP Pro SP3

    thinkpads_user sorry to appear lazy but the link clearly explains options and which datafiles can be opened by which versions of QuickBooks as well as a link to their 3rd party applications in which Intuit suggests there are purchasable applications which can convert the file. Did not seem appropriate or necessary to repost somebody else's copyrighted material.
