Quickbooks 2004 template transfer --urgent help needed
Posted on 2006-06-22
When moving Quickbooks 2004 from my old laptop to my new one, I installed quickbooks 2004 on the new, backed up company info on the old, and restored on the new. I opened the new installation and everything seemed to work fine. Then I remembered I had a custom invoice template to transfer, so I exported it to the new machine.
Here's the problem: when I went to import my invoice template, Quickbooks told me it already had an invoice template of that name and made me rename the custom one that I was trying to import. So I named it, for example, "invoice2."
All of my invoices are set to use "Invoice1" and the invoice template I want to use is now "invoice2." When I tried to delete invoice1 to rename invoice2 to invoice1, it wouldn't let me. When I renamed invoice1 (to change invoice2's name to invoice1), all invoices in the program were set to print using that unwanted template but with it's new name.
Is there an easy way to replace/swap templates so all invoices, past and new, will print using the template I want? (I am not interested in selecting "invoice2" from the pull-down menu everytime I print an old invoice.)
Hope this is clear--and I'd love to get this resolved tonight, if anyone'd care to help.
