Xeon E2136Xeon SilverHi,
 I am looking at two separate servers that come with two different CPUs (please see screenshots for details).
 When I compare Average CPU Mark, E-2136 @ 3.3Ghz with 6 cores has 15,338 compared to Xeon Silver @ 1.80GHz with 8 cores that has 10,883. But the price of E-2136 @3.3Ghz  is cheaper than Silver @1.8Ghz. I am going to set up Hyper-V server with two VMs (one VM is domain controller and the other VM is Terminal Server running Quickbooks with 2 users and MS ACCESS database accessed by about 8 users via Remoet Desktop Connection. Btw, MS ACCESS database will be converted to MS SQL database at some point)
   
Here are website links for the screenshots:
https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+Silver+4108+%40+1.80GHz&id=3167
https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+E-2136+%40+3.30GHz&id=3363

 When you look at CPUs these days, they have so many varieties and down right confusing.
 Which CPU is better and why?

Thanks.

I have a user who when tries to restore a Quickbooks database that is 100M stored on the server over the network takes hours.  When he copies the db from the server to his desktop which takes a few seconds then tries to restore it the process takes less then a min.  I would like to use wireshark to possibly identify the issue.

Questions
  1. Do i need to run Wireshark on his computer or on any computer to see if there are any issues?
  2. What should i be looking for?
  3. Should i attach a capture file or is that not secure?

My Windows 10 computer crashed and won't boot. I have tried all the Windows repair options, system restore and system recovery with no success. when I try to boot I continually get the infamous error that something went wrong and my computer needs to shut down. I can connect the HDD externally and se the partitions and data. the most important data I Ned to recover is my QuickBooks data. I plan to replace the HDD, reinstall Windows, QB and my other software. my question is this, whisk QB files or folders do I need to recover and restore to QB to get my company data back?

Thank you.

I have an office that is running Quick Books Pro 2017 Premier with 3 users in Multi Mode that decided to give this error 3 days ago.   After spending all day trying to find the solution and even talking to Quick books support for hours without a solution. I figured I would check if anyone out there has came across this one.   This error only occurs when we try to go to Reports > Payroll > Employees > Summary Report which launches excel and creates this report.  What is really odd is all other areas seem to function like we can pull a vendor report without any issues for example.  

The machines are all running windows 10 Pro with one using office 2013 and the other using office 2016.  I have verified all of the Quick-books and windows updates are in,  I had rebuild the database and verify it within Quickbooks.  I even went as far on the one workstation as to repair install both Quick books  2017 and Microsoft office and it still does not function on both the workstations.     Any assistance on this quick books error with a solution would be very appreciated. :-)

Is it possible to import an invoice that reflects two different states sales tax into Quick Books? Can, in general,  Quick Books show two different Sales tax rates on one invoice?

I have been struggling with exporting from a 3rd party database, to importing into Quick Books via an IIF file without errors. I finally got past the error messages with a successful import only to discover it only recognizes one states sales tax rate (we deal with several states for a number of customers).

Anybody have experience with this?

I am revisiting an old issue. QuickBooks Pro 2018 Desktop --  How can Maryland unemployment taxes show as paid and overdue at the same time? Look at the screen shot --  $86.74 Paid at the bottom "Payment History. Now look at the top over due Liability. You can verify that that exact particular liability has been paid; but it shows as over due. Why? Thank you for any assistance.

This is a long shot since it involves a little used application but I have a customer who is desperate.  He has a Server 2008 R2 server uses an application called T-HUB which posts to QuickBooks POS.  Or, rather, it used to.  When Inuit upgraded POS to 18 the function stopped working from workstations, but continued to work on the server.  T-HUB support worked for days on the issue and sent instructions for IT (that's the company I work for).  The last thing on the list was to uninstalled and reinstalled QuickBooks POS.  After that the two applications won't work together even on the server. I haven't called Intuit because it's really not a problem with their application.  T-Hub support has pretty much abandoned it.  I  started to think maybe I could find some generic info on the failed SQL connection at the root of the problem but have had no luck.  I'm weak on SQL.  I've included the error messages from the T-HUB log ans the the FAQ they referred to.  If anyone is familiar with this issue or can shed any light or point me in a direction. I would appreciate it and my customer would appreciate it.

Starting a new year with QuickBook 2018

My accountant uses QuickBooks and provided me the 2017 QB file  used to file my taxes. So, I need to create a new empty file for 2018 where I can start to log my expenses.

I need to maintain all the accounts and configurations she may have done, but want 2018 to be a blank slate.

Is there an option for this in QB?

Thanks

My client has Quickbooks 2018 Enterprise installed and recently switched email provider service to Office 365. I set them up to use the new email host in the QB settings but now it won't let them send email reports outside their domain. They can email them to themselves, but when it's being sent externally it gives a network connection error.

Greetings!

We want to start a new QB's file in Enterprise 2018 given the instability of our current database file.

Currently, the customer is using 2017 Enterprise Edition.  I have created a new file in 2018 and have imported all the lists.  Inventory is a major concern, there are over 3000 items and it looks like the price and cost have transferred, but not quantity on hand.  Is there a way to migrate that data outside of contracting a third party?  How about from Excel?

Thanks.

Hi Experts,

I need some help in balancing out my HST Account. In particular, for one period, I spent more than I made, and CRA posted a CR of $5.05 to my account, towards my HST Balance

The issue is when I filed this particular return within QB, it posted the $5.05 to my Receiver General - A/R, opposed to reducing my A/P, in order to balance out with CRA. For this transaction, I located the following Journal Entry under Receiver General (vendor), not A/R.

Journal Entry
When I try changing the second line to A/P with the Receiver General (Vendor) as Name, I get

QB Warning
Based on this error, I also assume that I cannot DR A/R and CR A/P.

How can I fix this, and bring the $5.05 into my A/P? I'm using QB 2012

Thank you.

Site to Site VPN using Quickbooks Desktop and Quickbooks POS.  
I do not see why multiple Quickbooks POS desktops at different locations over a Site to Site OpenVPN would not work.  Quickbooks sales is stating so but it feels like they just want to sell larger more expensive multi-store licenses.

Does anyone have any experience with trying Site to Site VPN setups with Quickbooks POS talking to other Quickbooks POS systems as well as Quickbooks Desktop?

We are currently running Quickbooks Pro 2018.  We import invoices from a CSV on a given day.  However our accounting person then goes through customer by customer to send an invoice.  

What we are looking to do is two parts.  First we would like to generate a list of invoices for just the customers with invoices that were imported that day.  Lets call it 20 invoices, once we have that list, we would like to click to email them, but also attach that customer's aging report with that invoice(without having to bounce between a million screens).  Currently she is doing this all manually and its a nightmare.   Any help here would be absolutely amazing.

Hello using quickbooks pro 2012 version I clicked on something that has made my blank checks half the width of my screen.  The font is fine it is the blank check form itself.  It was the full width of the quickbooks screen but now is only the left half of the screen.  Any ideas on what I clicked or how to get it back to full width?

I'm upgrading to a new server at an accounting firm and had a question about multiple years of QuickBooks.

In the past, I've always set up the server with each year of QuickBooks configured as the database server only.  There's no need to actually run the application on the server.  Because it is an accounting firm and some clients have older versions of QB, they need to be able to access the different years.  With my old approach, there are multiple instances (different years) of the QB service.  While this doesn't appear to cause problems, I generally like to simplify when practical.  I'm thinking that a simpler approach may work.

They don't need multi-user access for any of the files except for some current (QB 2018) ones.  My thought is that I don't have to install the database server for the older years.  If someone opens the file, their local copy of QB can manage it as a single user with no issues.  If this is the case, I can just install the QB 2018 database server and leave the other years alone.

Am I on the right track or do I really need to install the older ones?
