Opening Two Company Files in QuickBooks

Open Second Co. fileI had an interesting inquiry the other day from a QuickBooks user. “Larry,  a quick question…..because I am now running two sets of books in the Quickbooks program, is it possible to have both sets up at the same time?  It’s a nuisance to have to close one and open the other when I’m trying to find something!”

The answer to that question is …Yes. Here’s how you go about doing that but remember – if you have Payroll open you can only work in the Primary company file to make changes. If you want to make changes to the secondary company file in Payroll, you will have to close the Primary company file.

Just go to File/Open Second Company. It’s that simple.

Hope that answered your question.
