SOLVEDby IntuitEasyACCTUpdated October 29, 2021

Data files created through a backup or EasyACCT Client Transfer process can be sent as email attachments.

These instructions include how to create a company backup file.

  1. Start from the Company Selection screen.
  2. Select the Back up Company icon from the toolbar above the Current Data Path.
  3. Select the company to back up.
  4. Click the Back up Company button to the right of the Current Data Path.
  5. Select a destination for the backup file.
    • The recommended location is C:### where ### is the 3-digit company ID.
  6. A folder will appear in the backup location with the same name as the company ID.
    • In this folder the program creates two files:
      1. EZACT###.CMP (where ### is the 3-digit customer ID)
      2. EZCLSTRW.DIR
  7. Open a new email.
  8. Once inside the body of the email, click Attachments and then Attach File (steps will vary based on the email program).
  9. Browse to the file to attach.
    • If you backed it up to C:###, browse to that folder.
    • Only attach the EZACT###.CMP file.
  10. Once the attachments are included, finish the email by providing a complete description in the body of the email.
    • If emailing a data file to EasyACCT Support, include your case number, your Customer Account number, or telephone number so we can identify your account.
  11. Send the email.

  2. Open the company and select  EasyACCT Utilities then choose EasyACCT Client Transfer.
