If you have an old company file, you can either upgrade the file or identify if it is the right time to start a new company file to replace your old file.

Note: If you are creating a new company file and if you have another old company file saved on your computer, be sure to use a different name for the new company file. If you use the same name for the new company file, it will override the current company file and the data in the current file will be lost.
