Looking to see if anyone has figured out how to AUTO NUMBER an imported INVOICE in a QuickBooks IIF file.

I have read elsewhere it is not possible, but I wanted to ask you kids.

Thanks,
Scott

The answer lies in a QuickBooks (QB) ODBC driver.  Problem is that the driver is like $150!  Some have written import programs for less.

You can get the ODBC, write a querry to get the last invoice number in QB, and stop off of that.

Thanks,
Scott
