In library databases, you can use this method to maximize your search results. To begin, go to your server computer and enter the following keywords in the search bar:

  • Accountants Transfer Files – .qbx
  • Accountants Change Files – .qby
  • Working Files – .qbw
  • Back-Up Files – .qbb
  • Accountants Copy Files – .qba

If the search doesn’t work correctly, please include an asterisk before the extension type. If you find the file, take note of its location and then open or restore it in QuickBooks Desktop. I would recommend contacting your local IT support to assist you with finding the company file if you can’t find it.
