Our company is completly paperless and have been for years. We move Quickbooks from a Windows 7 to Windows 10 Machine in the last couple of months. Our accounting department has brought an issue to my attention that I am hoping someone has some ideas of a work around. We have a naming convention that we have been using for the past 5 years, that now that we have moved to Windows 10 is giving us this issue.

Consistent naming has Been: 2017-11-12 Amazon $149.66.pdf

In File Explorer (Quickbooks add attachment) When they do a search for Amazon, it comes up. When they do a search for the Date, it comes up. When you search for 149.66 or $149.66 it does not come up. If I save the file without the "$" and search for $149.66 or 149.66 it finds the PDF file, and now we can attach.

We had also had an Issue with Windows 7 Search that would not find "PHP" in the name. Our Insurance company is Physicians Health Plan, so the naming convention we had to go with is: PHPlan, otherwise they would not come up.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
