I am trying to start using the Quickbooks Web Connect Import. The problem is it isn't reading the entire line description. It will only read the first initial of the name. I believe it stops after so many characters.

About 75% of our transactions are through Chase Quickpay. The transactions look like this "QuickPay with Zelle Payment to Richard Smith" when we use the import, all quickbooks read is "QuickPay with Zelle Payment to R"

Then they create a rule for this... which then assigns any quickpay to a vendor with first initial "R" to Robert Smith.

Is there a way for it to read more characters? I do see the rest of the link in the "Bank Memo" but it doesnt' seem to read those with rules.

I'm looking for alternatives for accessing QuickBooks Enterprise remotely.  I'm looking to upgrade a server that is currently in a workgroup environment. It's a Multipoint Server, so does not require Active Directory for RDS functionality.   The users need full functionality of QuickBooks, so QB Online not really an option.  

Since Multipoint is long gone, Windows Server Standard is the only option, necessitating AD for RDS functionality.  The user base really isn't large enough to justify a Domain Controller and AD, but there is a need to access QuickBooks out of the office.  Currently 7 QuickBooks users, with the possible addition of 1-2 more in the  near future.  So, I was wondering if something like Cisco Webex or something similar is a viable alternative?

The other issue is installing QB Desktop on the 7 users PC's and accessing the Company File via mapped drive.  What's the performance hit likely to be?

Thank-you for your input.

Hello Experts,
I'm working with a company that uses QuickBooks Pro 2007.  The system is running fine.  They recently purchased and installed QuickBooks Pro 2018.  The 2007 data file will not convert into 2018 using the normal QuickBooks methods.  I understand through some research that this is expected.  Before I call QuickBooks, I was wondering if anyone had resolved a similar situation and if they would be willing to share their solution.
Thanks so much for your help,
John

Need some help with remote users and QuickBooks database manager. I am running QB database manager on a Dell PowerEdge and using a TZ300 SonicWall for the vpn. remote users are connecting to the network via NetExtender. They are connecting great, they see all the network files and folders. They even see the QB database files fine. The problem is when opening QB it freezes after entering the password. QB opens you can select the company to open but after password, nothing. Anyone have any ideas? I'm sure its a setting on the SonicWall that needs set. A firewall access rule or something. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Quickbooks 2018 runs in Safe Mode but crashes on startup in Normal Mode.  

We have a client with three Dells that will crash Quickbooks 2018 on startup in Normal Mode, but will run it fine in Safe Mode.  They are all running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, and have AMD video cards.  (I mention this because I found an article suggesting that these issues might be due to AMD video card drivers.)  Two are Optiplex 7010s; one is a Precision M6700.  There is also Nobilis / Equus workstation with an i3, using Intel onboard video, and it runs QB 2018 without issue.  

All of these computers have earlier versions of QB installed, all of which run fine.  The problem exists whether running under the local user account (which is an administrator) or the local administrator account.  (There is no domain.)

If I run Windows in selective startup (or if I run Windows in Normal Mode with just the services that were enabled in Safe Mode), QB 2018 still crashes.  

I have done repair installs of QB 2018.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled it.  I recall reading that something with the Dot Nets could cause this issue, so I completely removed all Dot Nets, then reinstalled them by running the offline installer or by running the QB installer.  No change.

The error in the event log states:

Faulting application name: qbw32.exe, version: 28.0.4001.2806, time stamp: 0x598ca36d
Faulting module name: ucrtbase.DLL, version: 10.0.10586.212, time stamp: 0x56fa10f1

Problem with Turbo Tax copying data from Quick Books 2016. It is too late now but I need to solve this problem. I keep all my business details in QuickBooks 2016 and need to have Turbo Tax to pull the data over at the end of the year. This is the first year it could now. Keep getting an error "We are not able to access this company file because we cannot login to the file automatically. If the file is password-protected, enter the password in the password window, otherwise open company file in QuickBooks and try again." I have done all that but still have error.
Any help please. Thank you.

The update has already been downloaded. Just click on Install Now. The new update will work with your current Server Manager (assuming it to be V2017)

You should ask this in Q&A as there is no value to any of us in answering your posts.

It seems I should explain what meant my sentence "Public forum is not good place to ask questions like this."...

QuickBooks is a paid software installed in a company which must have some policies about updates and upgrades. Such updates should not be allowed to users which do not know how to handle them.  How such user can recognize what is installing, what software displays the message and what to do at all?

To simply tell "Install it" just because the dialog window in the question is similar to the one displayed by the paid product can install whatever the attacker needs on your computer! Any click on your computer is at your own risk. Even the internet Ad closing by the X button can do unpredictable things...

Following is derived for the person which has computer background and which maintains software installations in your company/branch:

The first place where to ask is QuickBooks support (https://community.intuit.com/products/quickbooks-help-en-us). They surely know the answer and you've prepaid your questions already.

The second place is regular question here as Brian B proposed. Go to https://www.experts-exchange.com/askQuestion.jsp and ask the question again.  DON'T FORGET to add  QuickBooks as the Topic and don't forget to add whether you are sure the dialog is from the QuickBooks software.

A potential small accounting client called and asked about setting up the following scenario:

They want to have their clients remote into a server, then log into Quickbooks to work on their own data. There might/would be multiple clients remoted into the server at any given time working on their own individual QB files. There are currently 10 clients, but that list would be fluid.

The potential client currently has no server, so the whole thing would need to be set up from scratch. Are we talking about a Terminal Server running under hyper-v on a Server 2016 host? VPN or SSL VPN connections using a business class router? Licensing?

Have never worked with Terminal Server/Remote Desktop Services, so am not familiar with all the bits and pieces needed to set this up..if it's possible.

Once I identify all the necessary pieces, I can put together a quote for them.

Would appreciate any and all pointers!

Thank you!

Client is a busy Coffee Shop that uses QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise 2017 in the back office.  They used to use Quickbooks Payments, and they’ve changed to another, from Vantiv.  Now they’re struggling with getting their credit card transactions from Vantiv into Quickbooks, with the same level of detail they enjoyed with syncing Quickbooks Payments.  

How do we link Quickbooks and Vantiv, to make “importing” credit card transaction detail into the Undeposited Funds possible?

I have a customer that has a shop laptop and an office desktop.  He has quickbooks on both computers.  The Office computer is where quickbooks files are kept (ie Public>public documents>intuit)
we had both computers set up as a homegroup and then the shop computer was map-networked to the public folder on the shop comptuter.   Everything was working fine until last night when the customer took the laptop home.  This morning, when he tried to re-connect, quickbooks could not find the quickbook files on the office computer.  When I came there, the home group somehow had been removed on the shop computer and after getting home group going on that computer, I still could not see the public folder from the shop laptop.  I can only see documents, pictures, music, & video files.  What am i missing or doing wrong?

We use Quickbooks on a Remote server that our employees use Remote Desktop to access.  The setup works great for the most part, but we run into periodic printing issues that are fixed by rebooting the server.

I am thinking this is somehow related to the Quickbooks QBPRINT.QBP file, and the fact in our peak times we have 10-12 people on the server using Quickbooks.

The issue we run into happens periodically but I am unable to find a specific process that starts it.  Generally, when 1 person tries to print, they'll get an error saying the "File is already in use... " (and I think that's the QBPRINT.QBP file.  Once that error shows, no one will be able to print moving forward and we need to reboot to fix.

Any known issues or limitations that may be causing our issues?   Any setup or work-arounds that we need to implement to fix?

I'm not an expert in this area but is there some way to setup that file for multi-access or setup some type of spooling?  It seems perhaps the timing may be an issue with everyone using the system at the same time.

I am using Quickbooks Enterprise in multi mode on my network. The Database manager and files are all stored on a local server. When I am on my LAN everything works great. I am trying to use my Sonicwall/ Netextender vpn connection into my LAN. I connect fine and open files and folders on the server no issue. I launch Quickbooks, select the company to open and sign in with username and password. Thats when Quickbooks locks up and stops responding. Anyone have any ideas on this one? The only thing I cant get to work on the vpn is Quickbooks.

We are trying to clone a client's machine that has Quickbooks and Quickbooks Point of Sale 2013. We are cloning from a old 80GB Seagate SATA drive to a NEW Crucial 250GB SSD using Acronis True image. The clone "successfully" finishes and we can boot the system with the SSD. The issue arises when we open MS Office or Quickbooks and it asks for a re-activation. Normally not a problem but  it alarms the customer who would like to do this to another machine that has had the HDD replaced many times (long story). In addition the original 100GB drive also ask for activation and can not find the POS files after the clone is done. This also happens on the SSD, but we believe that it is linked to what is causing the activation issue. Again, this aggravates the customer as we assured that the original drive will be untouched ( and it was ) but can not find any reason for this. we have resolved the POS issue.

My question is: Is there any absolute way that this can be done that not cause re-activation, or makes sure that the drive is a 100% true copy of the original?

When a customer asks you for something try to your best to understand what exactly he wants to accomplish and not really on what he says he wants, be clear with him what this will be used for before you make a recommendation, take your time, and discuss. for example a client ask me for a NAS drive so he can have all file in his office in a central location and all his staff can access it. Then he calls up that he moved his quickbooks file to the NAS drive and quickbooks does not work, of course it does work, quickbook needs its network manager installed in the same place where the file is and the network manager is a windows based application not Linux. Then he wanted his ticketing program file on the NAS, again sql is not supported on a Linux, would I know more details I would recommend him one model higher than the one I gave him which support a vm where he would be able to have a window machine on.

hm. does it support iSCSI?, then you can store data on the NAS while the processing is on one "server" outside of the box...
Sometimes  think out of the box.

QB files - CurrentQB files from BackupHi,
 
 I have a situation where a Quickbooks  user downloaded transactions from the bank website and it altered multiple accounts this afternoon.
 Fortunately I perform file backup during night and also mid-day. So I see QB files as of this morning.
 How do I go about using QB files as of this morning?

Thanks.
