Migration of data from Microsoft Office Accounting

Finally giving up on Microsoft Office Accounting and wish to migrate to something else like Quickbooks.  Are there any migration programs that will permit data transmission of data from OS to others (Like QuickBooks)?

You should be able to export a CSV from Microsoft Accounting and import into either Sage or Quickbooks.

The other solution would be to just start your ledger from the date of the last transaction until the end of the financial year.

The only system i know with Direct Migration would be BizSight365 found here:

I looked In Office Accounting...except for a transfer to an OA Accountant, there seems to be no other export capability...

In That case your best bet may be to see if Bizsight365 allows you to export to other systems that way you can go from OA to BizSight then to another piece of software, that would be your solution.

Other than that the only thing is to use Balance Bought forward etc. taking your accounts as a continuation from the Office Accounting software.

Thanks for your help!  The Microsoft Office Accounting migration program to Quickbooks apparently has been withdrawn because it would only migrate account balances (Not Transactions) and did not that very well.  We finally gave up and just recreated the accounts in QB from the beginning of our fiscal year.  Your suggestions really help us work through the issue!

Thanks for all the suggestions. It is disappointing that Microsoft's Office Accounting package was withdrawn from the market, but also that they didn't include ANY method to export the data, not even to CSV!
