    Our office will be switching to Quickbooks (Pro? for small business) at year-end but the accounting software they have is DOS based and so they will be unable to convert the data from their BusinessVision Turbo to Quickbooks. The want to somehow retain their database of customers, suppliers, and inventory as it would be extremely time consuming to enter over 25 years of this accumulated data one by one. Is there any way they can import this information from BusinessVision Turbo to something like Excel and from there transfer the Excel info to Quickbooks? Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've also heard a suggestion to virtualize the system in order to have the old system within the new system. Does anyone know what exactly this means? If it would help the situation, how would we go about doing it?

    We'll be changing the current workstation to something compatible of course.

    Old Workstation (current until change)
    Pentium 2, 192MB RAM with WIN 98 :rolleyes:

    New Workstation
