Keeping QB Up To Date

From a client

I just got an update box that popped up that reads:
"QuickBooks has recently downloaded the R14 product update. Would you like
QuickBooks to install this update now?" This is the software you sent to me
on a disc last year. Should I go ahead and install this update? 


My reply:

Yes, you should install that new update.

QB releases an update to the programs that are still being supported three or four times a year to fix bugs that they find.  The QB 2012 program is already up to R6, which is five updates since the original program was released last Fall.

A good site to check whether you have the latest update for your version of QB is at:

You will see that R14 is the newest update for the 2009 program.

You can always find the version you are running by holding the Control and the 1 keys down at the same time while you are in the program.

Good luck.  I hope this helps.
