I’m not quite sure I understand your question. Did you enter 2016 data into QBSE and now you are trying to locate it? If so, make sure that the date fields are set to show ”All Dates” or the specific time period you are looking for (i.e. 01/01/16-12/31/16). QuickBooks tends to default to “Current fiscal year” which is 2018 so that is one reason why you may not see 2016 data.
If that’s not your question, please provide me with some additional info so that I can help you.
All the Best-
