How can I transfer 2017 file without losing all the inputting of 2018 info? When I transfer it starts afresh.

I entered all 2018 data and then realized the business income info from 2017 missing.  When I click on transfer 2017 file it starts a new return and all that I entered before disappears.  How can I save what I entered before and yet transfer 2017 file?

You must do the transfer when you start the return. There is no way to transfer your info afterwards, without starting a new return.
