Access Linked to Quick Books

I have inherited a situation where there is an Access database "linked" to a Quick Books database. There is a series of Access Macros & Queries that do specific tasks. The overall objective is to synchronize some f the Quick Books tables with an on-line web server database. The process runs nightly and has run since 2006.

We are now having issues, probably caused by changes I made.

I am trying to find out HOW the Access Macros, etc. log into Quick Books so I can change the login.

I cannot determine how that is done.

It starts by running the attached bat file (batb.bat).

The macro is in the attached jpg. I can of course provide more detail as needed, please advise.

Thanks

Do you have "linked" tables to the Quickbooks database? Often people use a product like QODBC to connect to the QB database. If you do, then you'd need to relink those tables ONLY to Quickbooks, using the correct username and password.

Also check the queries named in that macro (LSS_EXTR_Cust and so forth). Open them in design view, then check the Properites for a Connection String value, which may contain the credentials. If you find them there, you can just edit the string to show the new values.

This has linked tables. Is there a way I can "see" the userid & password used?

Also, the issues seems to be connected to the fact that the overnight mechanism uses QB in "Single User" mode, whereas if another user is using QB, it is in multiuser mode.

I cannot detect any connection user / password from properties on the queries.

Don't know what to do.
