One of my client's Quickbooks access gets slow when multiple users access to server where QB is hosted. I checked the processing power available, and RAM, CPU, and Ethernet usage is between 10%-20%, so that shouldn't be the cause of the issue. Other users accessing files on the server don't seem to be having any issues.

Rebooting either the workstation or the server seems to help, although it can be tedious to reboot on a regular basis as it's proved to need.

Any ideas on how to keep Quickbooks running at it's best?

Amazon Web Services

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

quickbooks - creating and emailing invoices leads to QB generating a filename like Inv_####_from_companyname_#####random number.pdf.  The random numbers don't increment and there's no apparent pattern to them.

Need to find out how the random number at the end is derived, what it's used for, and why it's included in the invoice file name.  Also whether it can be removed.

I have a client who is trying to use the merchant center in quickbooks premier 2018. Quickbooks uses the I.E. browser within it's program so if there are issues with I.E. then there will be issues inside of quickbooks where it is accessing the Internet. There are a few issues with Internet Explorer that I believe are keeping it from working correctly. I think once we resolve the I.E. issues, the rest will take care of itself. The system was just upgraded from windows 7 pro to windows 10 pro version 1903. Internet explorer is exhibiting some strange issues. On a simple page like msn.com,  graphics do not show. A black box (w/o a red x) shows in place of the correct graphic. Accessing the merchant center via I.E. will initially display page info but once you click on one of the options, it moves to the next screen and generates a black box that would be where the detailed information would be. I have attached a copy of how it looks on a working version of I.E. (my computer, windows 10 pro 1803, i.E. 11 vs the non working verson on windows 10 pro 1903, i.E. 11.

I have removed I.E. on that computer via the windows features and reinstalled it. I have done a reset on I.E. and the advanced option on the advanced tab on I.E. settings. I have checked the media settings and it is set to show images. During the uninstall, I also deleted any I.E. info from the appdata folder for any users.

I have tried it both clean (to check websites like msn) and with the program requirements …

I had this question after viewing QB Ent. 2011 - Reboot required loop - won't Open.

When using work resource and Quickbooks, I had an update for quickbooks and it went through. Told me to restart computer and i did. I restarted every computer that had anything to do with this. Still get the same response when trying to open  Quickbooks using work resources, Need to reboot computer to finish installing update. Can open quickbooks on server or any other computer but not through work resources.

Looking to enforce 60 day password changes on all AD accounts.  This includes the QuickBooks DB Manager account QBDataServiceUser23

Everything I've read suggests that this account can't be managed like a normal AD account . . . that QuickBooks does all the password management internally.

I don't think that wil work for the comliance standards we are looking to meet.

Can anyone provide some general insight as to how this account can be managed/locked down?

Thanks!

Using Quickbooks 2019 Pro, Desktop, along with their merchant services. If you have an order set up for recurring payments, and the client adds several new users to their service,  is there a way to update that recurring payment to reflect the new services? (eg. a client buys 5 email licenses, and we set up a recurring payment for 5 units at $X/ea. Now they want to add a 6th license. Is there a way to update that recurring payment?)

Error MessageNew Client is having import issues with Quickbooks 2019,   Windows 7-64bit all patches applied

she also has QB 2017 on the Same PC

When she tries to download Transactions it wants to put it into 2017 not 2019

So I go to Manually download the Transactions but QB says that I do not have a Valid Browser

I upgrade all Browser but still get the message.....I was on the phone with QB Tech support for over an Hour and well.....I might as well be talking to my Dog.

The message is attached....I ran updates on QB 2019 and all patches on the PC but still get the same message...

How do I repair without loosing another few hours talking to dogs??????

Using Quickbooks for Mac 2016.  When I open one of my company files, the Customer Center window opens, because I had it open when I last closed Quickbooks.  Then I see 3 or 4 other windows open and disappear (a Deposit window, a Timesheet window, I think.)  

When the window-opening animations complete, the one open windows can be dragged into new positions, but not resized, and not closed, and does not recognize any mouse or keyboard interactions.  The program itself displays every menu item as hidden.  I have to Force Quit Quickbooks to take it down.

I tried reinstalling the program, but I get the same behavior.  Odd, because this company file was working fine just two days ago.  I back up every time I close the file, and I've tried restoring some recent backups, but they behave the same, even backups taken from a week ago.    Not sure what to do next.

Python 3 Fundamentals

This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.

Got a customer usiong Quickbooks Pro 2013, that has somehow forgotten his password.
My first thought is that Quickbooks will not be much help, as they only support the current & two previous versions, so I am going to suggest he buy the latest & greatest version & take advantage of that initial support period, unless anyone has any other suggestions...

Have a potential client, that has 2 marina locations.  They have DSL (10Mbps) as best possible internet source.  They currently have a VPN for voice network, using those same DSL connections.  QoS priority is the phones.  Due to the small bandwidth, instead of using the RDP connection to one slave computer at Site A... They are looking for cloud based software to manage the marina businesses as one entity.  The software must be cloud based, and a Terminal Server is not an option.  It must work with Quickbooks for all accounting.

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?

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.

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.
