We currently have an Access Invoicing application which uploads invoices to our Quickbooks companyfile. All OK if run in an local environment.

But we are moving our Quickbooks to the cloud and we still want to upload he invoices to the Quickbooks file, Currently we are using the QODBC driver to connect and upload data.

Anyone have any ideas?

By "QuickBooks in the cloud", do you mean QuickBooks Online?  The latter is the Intuit Offering.

I looked at:

http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/articles/INF12836

and do not see that you could use QOBDC on a computer with QuickBooks Online. That is because QuickBooks is a client server database and remote access does not work very well.

The reason QuickBooks Online works is because the Company File goes online along with QuickBooks.

So, no, what you want will not work so far as I can see.

If you wish to do this, use QuickBooks on a Terminal Server of your own and mount Access on the Terminal Server.
