In order to transfer file from Linux to Windows, and vice versa, you need to install Samba. I personally just set up a shared folder and throw everything in there. There's plenty of tutorials if you google "Shared folder ubuntu" or something to that effect.

Can we calrify the question. Do you mean:

1 - Just copy over the file

2 - Actaully edit the file in QuickBooks running on Linux.

For 1, easy. No need for SAMBA or anything like that, just copy it to a CD or Pen Drive and move it over. IF number 2 then the answer is a fair bit longer.

As an aside... at one time the codeweavers.com folks were using QB under their edition of wine for their own bookkeeping.
