The not-yet-completed file's #'s have to be replaced with the final 'tax2015' #'s  Where must that file be entered?

Are you saying that when you started your 2016 desktop return this year, that the wrong *.tax2015 data file transferred in?  i.e., that the version of the *.tax2015 data file had incomplete or incorrect information, and that you have another *.tax2015 data file with the correct and completed 2015 return?

If so, then to get the correct 2015 data file transferred into a 2016 return, you would need to start a new 2016 return and transfer the correct 2015 file at the start.  You cannot transfer a 2015 file into an already-started 2016 return.

The 2 year comparison screen?  I know you can manually add it if it's missing so you might be able to change the amounts.

Go to Business tab-Continue
Choose Jump to Full List -or I'll choose what I work on
Then…
Business Income and Expenses- Click the Start or Update button

You should see the Business Summary page that lists your businesses

Then click EDIT by the business name and the next screen should be a list of  topics,
Business Profile, Income, Inventory/Cost of Goods Sold, Expenses, Assets, and Final Details last.

Scroll down to Final Details -  Two Year Comparison

Thank you both! epo39b, you correctly deciphered my poor attempt at brevity. VolvoGirl, I am sorry it  threw you off. I suspected that it would take starting a new return.  Again, a sincere thanks to you both.

You're welcome.  If you started a new return and it worked, we're glad you now have the correct info transferred.
