QuickBooks Not Backwards Compatible

Marie asks:

I am a student taking a class in QuickBooks Pro 2004. The textbook is by Janet Horne. The computers at school have the 2004 software loaded. My question is if I purchase QuickBooks Pro 2005 and install on my home computer are the 2 versions compatible when I work on my problems at school and I backup from 2004, and then take home and restore to 2005, or if I reverse and backup at home and restore at school will this work? Thanks for your help.


Simply put, no you can’t. Once your data is upgraded, you will no longer be able to use it on an earlier edition.
