Upgrading from Quicken Premier to Quicken Home & Business

I have a multi-year history of my personal finances in Quicken Premier - everything up to date with the Program Revisions and no "bad stuff" happening in my files database (I do a backup and then run "Validate" EVERY TIME I conclude using Quicken and go backwards to previously saved "good" version if a problem appears). I am now considering to start doing my small business accounting in Quicken in place of QuickBooks whose features I only use a little of versus the expense. Can I just buy and install Quicken Home & Business with my existing personal history files being read in correctly - and then start implementing my small business accounting?
