QBW File Format

Spreadsheet data (QuickBooks for Windows)

QBW is a file extension for a QuickBooks for Windows spreadsheet file. 

The QBW format is associated with Intuit’s QuickBooks money management software, which uses QBW files to store financial data, templates, letters, logos, and images for a company. A QBW file also compiles information from files created with QuickBooks Financial Statement Designer, Cash Flow Projector, Business Planner, and Loan Manager.

QBW files can be backed up to QBB and QBM files, although the latter only stores financial data, not all of the information gathered by a QBW file.

MIME type: application/octet-stream
