I want to cancel my Quickbooks account, but want to export my data first.

I went to Reports and exported some of the data to Excel as described here: Export Report But, ideally I would like a file that contains all data that I can import into another app or even back into Quickbooks in the future if necessary.

Is a third party app or another method of extracting all of my data that I'm missing?

Try the following methods:

  • Try log-in using Internet Explorer (as Active X is required). From the gear icon go to Export Data. Once Active X is installed, the screens will take you through the export process.

  • You may try to install a trial version of QuickBooks that you can install on this computer just to export your data

If above won't help, contact QuickBooks Support as the export could work only for the US QuickBooks Online at this time.
