I am thinking of buying an IMac for my next computer. I have 10 years of QuickBooks data to transfer if I did this. Currently running QB 2006 Pro on a Windows XP machine. Any one have experience transferring to the Mac version of QB???

Thanks Pltypus
The link describes a procedure that someone else is trying. It appears that they have been having some issues along the way. I am mystified as to why this seems so involved a procedure. I would think it only in the best interest of Apple and Intuit to make conversions as seamless as possible. Reading posts on other sites it seems that Mac QB version lack things like payroll and the ability to import custom templates.
I depend on this for my small business and do not have the time or inclination to mess around with Intuit / Mac comparability problems.
Instead of constantly needing to upgrade to a new version of QB every year I wish they would just charge a usage fee and keep this thing updated automatically. Itís just a bookkeeping program. I was quite happy with QB 99 and only upgraded to 2006 when I purchased my new computer in 06.
I really wanted to go the Mac route this time. I guess I will have to start leaning toward Windows 7. :mellow:
Thanks gain for you input.
Best Regards
Nawtheasta
P.S. Any additional thought are more then welcome!

I thought I read in the past about ways to run Windows programs from a MAC.Some sort of emulating program.In a perfect world I would just move over QB 2006. I don't mind upgrading to a newer version but there really is no need as far as what I do with the program.
Any comments about running windows programs with a MAC are welcome.
Best Regards

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Well there is a topic here somewhere that one of the members created saying what his experiences with virtual box was: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic357797.html that should give a general idea. If not feel free to ask any questions and I will be glad to answer. :)
