Linux Appgen Accounting

I have read press releases from the developers of Appgen's Mybooks Pro and they state Quickbooks data can be imported int the Appgen application.  I cannot seem to find out how it is done.  Anyone know?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The site below says the QuickBooks conversion utility is included.

The user manual says:
"To find out which systems are currently supported, simply click on the File menu and look
for the Import options. If you see an import from your current software on the menu, select
it by clicking on it and you will be given further instructions to complete the process"

I suggest this is probably the best avenue of approach to begin with.

I loaded MyBooks on a windows machine and went to import but it downs not see my QuickBooks backup file.  It is in a backup directory and I can see it but MyBooks does not.  I noticed MyBooks was looking for an extent of qbw and the extent on my backup is QBB

.QBW is your live QuickBooks file; .QBB is a backup as you note.

Copy the .QBW file to a different .QBW name (so as not to do anything to your production file). Then try to import the "newname".QBW.  See if that works.

Just to belt and suspender:  I think MyBooks will want to look at the live file, because the backup file is compressed by QuickBooks and MyBooks probably does not know what to do with a QBB file.  

No problem, allow it to convert a live file (QBW), but be sure your production QuickBooks is properly backed up or you are converting from a copy renamed. Just be sure you can get home if need be.
