Peachtree conversion

I am working with a new client that has their accounting data in Peachtree. According to the QB help menu, in order for me to convert this to QB, I will need Peachtree software and the whole data file on my computer, not just a backup copy of their data from Peachtree.Does anyone have a way around this? I really don't want to purchase a copy of Peachtree for this conversion. I should point out that the person who was handling my clients books is not going to be too cooperative in giving up their software. They will however burn a disk with the backup.Thanks for your help.


Your client should be able to send you the entire Peachtree file instead of making you a backup. Or you can do the conversion at the client's office.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
