Quick Books and Access

Just installed Quick Book Enterprise 2018 that is said to come with QODBC to allow Microsoft Access to read its files.  I want to Microsoft Access to read Transaction Detail By Account report in a table in ACCDB format. Is it possible?  If so can you walk me through?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The QODBC driver can be used like any other database driver provider, so essentially you create a connection with that driver, and then you should see your Quickbooks tables.

To create a connection, open your Access database, select the External Data tab >> Import & Link >> New Data Source >> From Other Sources, and select the ODBC option. If your QODBC driver is installed and configured correctly, you should be able to use the wizard to create a connection and link your tables.

Note that Quickbooks is somewhat restrictive as to what you can do with this connection. Not all data points are available, so you may not be able to get the data you want.

Thank you!  Very good!  How do I verify if QODBC was installed properly?

You try to use it as described. If it's in the list of ODBC providers, and you can access data with the driver, then most likely it's properly installed.
