Intuit QuickBooks Premier: Accountant Edition 2003 (275957) for PC - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

I would not open up the company file in 2009. Open your 2003 Quickbooks, make a backup and then restore the back up in 2009. If you do run into problems you might want to upgrade into 2006 and then to 2009. (you will need to find someone who can do this for you if you don't have a 2006 version. I can help you with that if you need it

Hi, i am using windows 7 and clicked on start, control panel, regional and language, and then found my settings (was having same problem with quickbooks premier and the date set to US) and found i had accidently selected in the install of windows 7 [English-USA] instead of [English-Australia]. i altered two settings and now my quickbooks is working fine. whenever i searched for this on quicken help sites it did not indicate clearly how easy it was to fix this.

QuickBooks support will update the file for you. They have a bug on the 2006 program that does not permit bthis upgrade.

For Starters Go to control panel and open date and time and make sure it's set to today's date.

The newer versions of QuickBooks should be able to read the older versions files. You may get a message about updaing the data.
Many people have been reporting issues with Xp after service pack 3 came out, and was then pulled by Microsoft.
If your system did get the service pack 3 update, it may actually take a microsoft tech to undo the update successfully.

If it's anything like Excel, someplace in the FORMAT menu should be options to allow you to change the date format. (Block off the cells, row, or column in question, click FORMAT in your toolbar.) You may have different country options or formatting choices within the date type.

You would need QuickBooks Pro 2003 or higher to open that file.
