Windows Server 2012 Scheduled Task

Is it possible to do the following on a Windows 2012 server using a scheduled task:

1. Log into Quick Books (QB) as the administrator.

2. Run a Excel 16 Macro that exports a QB table, into Excel & saves it.

3. Ftp  that Excel file to a web server.

4. From a browser start a web server script.

5, Log OUT of Quick Books

QuickBooks itself does not support command lines. QuickBooks Launcher can start a Company File.

But once in, there is no native QuickBooks automation.

So, no, you cannot do what you want.

You would need go the QuickBooks Marketplace and use something like Transaction Pro Exporter to do what you want outside of QuickBooks. I think it support command line.
