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.

I use QuickBook 2016 and store data on server, i always backup my company file with QuickBook backup utility and it work just fine. And my concern is want to know that is it also work 100% if i manually copy or zip whole company folder to external HDD and copy back to anywhere and connect QuickBook to that company folder? (If you can detail me also about PeachTree would be very appreciated).

Thanks in advance.

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've moved quickbooks files to a new computer everything works, but when I try to get into an old invoice it doesn't find the bill attached it to.

Can I specify a new location for those invoices ?

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?

My QuickBooks Pro 2018 shows my Maryland Unemployment account for 1st Qtr 2018 as being due/late in the “Pay Liabilities” page. It was paid end of April and cleared May 2nd. In QuickBooks it shows as being paid May 2nd in the “Pay Liabilities Payment History” section; so why would it show as still being due in the “Pay Liabilities” section? The payment also shows up in the register as cleared.

Why Diversity in Tech Matters

Kesha Williams, certified professional and software developer, explores the imbalance of diversity in the world of technology -- especially when it comes to hiring women. She showcases ways she's making a difference through the Colors of STEM program.

I currently implemented a technology from cdata software (cdata.com)  that replicates tables from QuickBooks (contractor version 18) to SQL (screenshot attached) and, I'm now in the process of trying to create an accounts receivable report based off of the newly replicated data.

Do any of you experts know which tables (presumably credit memos and invoices) and data in those tables I will need to get proper AR data? I'd like to be able to see the current AR, 1-30, 31-60, 61-90, 91+ days past due, if possible.

Thank you all, in advance!!

QuickBooks Enterprise data file issues--when we run Verify and Rebuild data we are getting errors; errors range anywhere from 4 or 5 (may 20018) to 1000's (June/Jule/2018). The last time I was able to run a Verify and a Rebuild without any errors was on 5/29/2018. I saved that file and put it in a backup folder with other backup files that also passed both rebuild and verify. Since that date all files that I try to run Verify and Rebuild error out at some point in the process, some in the verify and other in the Rebuild. Each time these have failed I have sent a the requested report to QuickBooks yet they have never responded to those reports nor acknowledged receiving them when we have called to try to get these errors resolved.  We are now to the point where their support is telling us we have to start a new file because the fixes they have been trying to make over the past 2 months are not working. So before I agree to this I wanted to check with EE to see if I have other options because they are also saying our corrupted file with all our history cannot be saved even though they say that all the unlinked transaction causing these problems are from data created in 1998/99 and 2000 and 2001 and 2002. So my question is this this--can the file be saved by exporting/saving all data from the last 10 years only? Can the last 10 years be removed from the existing "corrupted file" and then see if removing 10 years of data can then allow for repairs to what is left? Ideally we …

I have a customer that is running Quickbooks Desktop 2011.  (I think it is time to Upgrade!)  Just one user.  The QB file lives on the server.  She is getting an error that says: "Company File Error.   The disk or drive containing x:\sduncan\qbdata\qbfile.qbw is full.  In order to create more space, you need to remove some files.  After you remove the files, retry your operation."  
The network drive has plenty of space.
Any ideas why this error?  I searched Intuit and didn't really find anything.

I need some help in estimating the time it would take to build a QuickBooks server.

Currently  8 Users who need access to QB. 3 other users in the main office who don't need QB access.  10 users on remote jobsites with variable hotspot access that I was thinking of leaving in their own Workgroup if possible. Current environment is a standalone QB server in a Workgroup - no DC/AD as the OS is Multipoint Server. All users on O365.  

So, I'm scoping out the project but need help in estimating the time.  Proposed server to have 8-10 Cores, with 4 Hyper-V VMs.  8 HDDs RAID 6

VM0: 2 Cores, 4GB RAM: ADDS Server - File & Print, DNS, DHCP
VM1: 4 Cores, 16GB Ram: RDSH, QuickBooks
VM2: 2 Cores, 4GB Ram: RDBroker/GW/Web
VM3: 2 Cores,  8GB RAM: SQL


In addition to the server build time, I have to factor in the time to add 15 Office PCs (11 LT/DT & 4 Surface Pros ) to the domain and transfer profiles.   What are reasonable times to factor in to this build?


Thanks
Tom

Hey, we have been having a strange problem with our Quickbooks POS ver 13 multi user installation in a club setup (4 machines). Customers have to recharge their accounts before ordering and the big problem we have is discrepancies between current and available balances. However,the sale transactions are posted in real time but the balances take seem time to synchronize(happens  to a random member account irregularly ) and we have changed the LAN routers and cabling and the problem is still persisting. The charge to account is posted after some delays of a few hours. We have integrated the solution to Quickbooks premier for financial exchange. Our company file is 500MB big and the connectivity tool doesn't post any errors. The environment is available for remote access any time. Any pointers?

QuickBooks - all versions - DB Mgr issues and MultiUser mode plus simple access to a company file on a Server.

I've read article after article and  they all give the same solutions over and over - which of course are valid.  Open ports on firewall, exclude AV from scanning QB folders, share permissions, etc.
Although QB is a fantastic accounting program for the small business, its data structure and sharing is something else.  We have QB database mgr installed on servers ranging from Microsoft 2008/2012/2016 domain controllers with Microsoft DNS, dedicated QB member servers (No DNS), Windows 7/10 PCs with DB mgr, etc.  All experience the same issues over and over.
The problem:  Either cannot switch to MultiUser mode or cannot access a specific company file.

Our solutions, depending on which platform QB DB Mgr is installed on is basically to perform a "Scan" from the DB Mgr and once its complete, all is good.  Of course on DC's we have to stop DNS (or modify QB to look at other ports that don't conflict) or restart the QB service or just do the scan.  We do find that if we open the QB program on the DB Mgr server and open a company file, there is never an issue but that is not something you can leave because certain functions require QB to be in single user mode to perform.  Even if we disable any firewalls on the DB servers we still get issues.  Many times, on standalone servers, running the Scan to search for company files give a network error.  Most of the time we …
