    Does anyone know how to get estimates from Quickbooks Pro laptop over to your home PC?

    I am in process of purchasing laptop for estimates and believe I am going to use reader card for storing the info off the laptop and onto the home computer....however, I cannot find the estimate files in the quickbooks program.

    Can anyone help? Appreciate ANY information...thanks

    The data file is all one file.

    You would have to back up the file from the laptop, restore to the home pc. Do the reverse when taking the laptop out again.

    Why not just use the laptop?

    Your company file is all in one. What I do is access the file in quickbooks directly from the memory card on both computers. This way you only have one file. But make sure you backup on each computers harddrive and on removable media such as a zip.
