Where were you in 1965? Some of you were in school, whether elementary, middle, or high. Others will remember those being the fun and adventurous college days. To those celebrating a 50th birthday this year, you were busy arriving to this world in 1965. And to some, that year you were just a sparkle in your parents' lives.

To one of our clients, that year was the beginning of its existence. And to their credit, they have electronic accounting records dating back to then. Yes, electronic records. Before you think I am making this up, their current accounting system does not date back to 1965 -- no, they are not running a computer that occupies an entire room and requires special raised floors for cooling... However, they were diligent in their accounting life to bring over or reproduce their historical detail every time they had a change in accounting systems.

Recently the client came to us because they intend to change from a proprietary custom accounting solution to QuickBooks Enterprise. "No problem," we said. "we do conversions of any kind all the time." Little did we know that their requirement would be to bring over half a century of accounting data. Yes, you read right. This is the fifty year conversion.

What you need to know about Windows 10 and QuickBooks

Windows 10 and QuickBooks 2016 are the newest in current technology. Both have been out for over a month. To run the latest and greatest, it is key to evaluate your applications for compatibility and even try on a test computer when possible. Here is some useful information to help when you upgrade QuickBooks and/or Windows.

Microsoft has made the Windows 10 operating system a free upgrade for those that have Windows 7 or Windows 8. Before you upgrade, however, make sure your applications are compatible with Windows 10. This includes QuickBooks and any 3rd party add-ons. Intuit states that QuickBooks 2015 and 2016 are supported on Windows 10.
