We are using quickbooks 2010 pro for our invoicing system.

We are looking for a solution to be able to send an email or fill out an app on our blackberrys when we are not in the office that will contact our quickbooks database and auto create an invoice.  We want to eliminate the steps of sending a work order email to admin....admin has to manually create an invoice in quickbooks then email this to the client.

Thanks!

I have a client using Quickbooks Point of Sale. They also have
an Access Database that tracks some customer information
that cannot be tracked in Quickbooks. They are at the point
where they need to keep this information synchronized. I would
like to link to the Quickbooks table from within Access.

Currently the Point of Sale module updates to Quickbooks at
the end of the day.

Is it possible (and reliable) to link to the tables in the POS
module where I can write and update information from within
Access. I would be interested in linking to the Customer table:
Name, address, etc.

Hello all,
This is probably pretty basic abut I have had this dumped in my lap and need to do this as quickly as possible.

How can I using the SDK for QB loop through the customer list and return all fileds for all customers so I can read them into an Access table.

Thnks in Advance

I just purchased a dell 2950 server and also purchased a Drac 5 card with cables (separately from another vendor)
If I install the card where it's suppose to be the edge connector on the card is next to the exterior of the case and does not plug into anything so the card does not work. Here is an image http://sourceforge.jp/projects/linuxserver/wiki/00image/attach/DRAC5.jpg

If I install it upside down and plug the edge connector into the riser on the motherboard the card works (somewhat) as I can secure shell into it and powerup and powerdown the server however none of the other features work - no https no vnc.
Am I missing a jumper setting or some other hardware?

I have tried everything I can think of, now I need a real wizard to come up with a way to make this happen.

I want to create an item that I can use to apply a discount and reduce inventory of an item.

What I want to do is to sell a mixed case.  The only way I can figure to do it is to sell the individual items contained in a mixed case, line by line, and then when that quantity is achieved, I have an item Mixed Case discount, which appies the discount, but I also need to reduce my shipping carton inventory by 1.

This is a real life problem for me...is there a way to do it?

Thanks

I have an issue that's been stumping me for a few days. This will take a bit to explain...

A client asked me to reconfigure their network. They have 5 PCs that connect wirelessly to an old D-Link router (4-WinXP Pro, 1 Win2000). One of the WinXP PCs acts as their Quickbooks host machine. Another one of the WinXP PCs connects to the QB database in multi-user mode to process items.

They also have a lobby with 2 Win98SE (ugh) PCs connected (wired) to the router for clients to use as they wait for their cars (it's a garage).

I recommended that they move to a network with VLANs (one for clients, one for corporate), or at very least they buy a router that supports multiple SSIDs that can be isolated from each other.

They agreed to the first option, so I purchased the Cisco WRVS4400N which has a built-in L2 switch and supports VLANs. I configure the router and plug it in. None of the current wireless systems were able to connect ... which is fine because they wanted to upgrade to 'N' adapters anyway. Meanwhile I plug back in the old router which promptly dies and won't power on ... a sign of woe to come. They have purchased D-Link DWA-130 USB adapters which seem to connect with no issues to the new Router.

The Win98 machines are plugged in to Ports 3 and 4 of the Cisco on their own VLAN and are also working.

Then we try to connect Quickbooks from the client machine to the host machine. The host machine promptly drops all network connectivity, as does the client …

I am trying to salvage data on a dying hard drive. The back up has been failing so we have no good backup of the quick books databases. What i am trying to find out since i cannot copy many files at a time is what files have the critical data to transfer from the old hard drive to the new. Thanks in advance.

computer has QuickBooks simple start 2009 on it.  It also has Windows XP and the computer is on a Microsoft Domain.

My boss downloaded and installed the update.  He now cannot print to any of his LAN printers!  We uninstalled the printers and reinstalled them.  He was able to print invoices once but now he cannot again.

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated!!

I have QB09Pro.  I have a company with 3 offices in 3 different locations. I want to do all the invoicing from one main office, but I want the invoices for the different locations to have different templates from each other. For instance, I have an office in NJ and I want the invoices for NJ customers to go out with a NJ address for remittance.  I also have a PA office and want to do the same. I also have a VA office and want the same for it. I dont mind going thru each customer and selecting which invoice template to use the first time, but if I have to check the invoice template with EVERY invoice to make sure it matched up, I will be better off running 3 sets of books and just letting my accountant deal with the mess of putting them all together.

I can go to QUickBooks support for these answers, but I usually get better answers here.  I have a few questions:

1)  If I want to process Credit Cards thru QB, must I use a QB credit card processor, or can I remain with the one I am using?
2)  WHen I complete and invoice, can I fax it directly from QB.  Is there a service to for this or what.
3) How does Unit of Measure work?  If I purchase in pounds and sell in ounces, how should I enter inventory into the system, in pounds or ounces?
4)  Last questions, I want to print a pick sheet from the fullfillment window, not sales orders or invoices.  I check pick sheets but I they do not print.

Hello,
I cannot create Purchase Orders from Quotes, in QuickBooks.
When I go to the Home Page, a 'path' exists indicating I can create Purchase Orders from a Quote/Estimate, but when I actually try to do it, I cannot see determine how to do it.
Could it be based on the type of business I set it up as many months ago.?
Thanks

THere are two computers in a small office that share Quickbooks 2008.   They are both running Win XP Pro.    One computer is the main computer for Quickbooks while the other is a client for Quickbooks.   They were running fine until I put a new external drive for backup on the computer running as the main.  The main had a Maxxtor external drive but that ecame defective and a new external (Not a Maxtor) was put in it's place.   Now when the main computer is on but Quickbooks is not running and the user on the client tries to open Quickbooks it lags about 30-40 secs before it opens.  If the main computer has Quickbooks open then the lag time on the client is only about 15-20 secs per page.  This did not happen before.   The client opened Quickbooks very quickly.  Any ideas why this is happening?   Both computers have 2GB of RAM

I have a client who's QuickBooks file was created on QB Enterprise 2007 ed.  We backed up the file and tried to restore/open it in QB Pro 2010 but was not able to.  We received a message stating that we could not open a file created in QuickBooks Enterprise with QuickBooks Pro 2010.

Is there a way to convert the file to open and be used in QuickBooks Pro 2010?

Customer is running WinXP Pro SP3

I have 2 licenses for Quickbooks 2009 Pro and want to install it on 2 different computers. However, I don't want to share out the files from the main computer but keep them on the server. When I start the quickbooks installation, it does not give me the option to install files anywhere but C.
The quickbooks support website is not much help either.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Both are Windows XP computers.

We run a third party time and billing software program (BillQuick2005)that sychronizes with Quickbooks Multicurrency Edn.  The time and billing software runs an SQL2005 database, and In the last couple of days we have run into a problem where all machines trying to synchronize the two databases give error 429 or "Can not create QBMXLRP Com component" when trying to open a Quickbooks session in the background.

I'm getting an error when importing my iif file into QB. I've attached some data that is similar to what I'm importing in hopes that someone can help me understand why I'm getting the error, see below.

I'm guessing that it has to do with the !VEND in the iif but not sure so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I have Outlook 2007 and Quickbooks Premier 2009.  I have downloaded, installed and run the QB Outlook sync program.  I can not find a way to run the Sync to keep these two files in sync.  There is no Sync button on the QB tool bar.  What do I need to do?

I am using a Filemaker plugin called FileBooks to integrate an FM6 database with QuickBooks. After the latest QuickBooks payroll upgrade, the application stopped working. When I try to open the QuickBooks company file via a plugin call, I receive an error 21 message. This might not be related, but if I attempt to open the QuickBooks company file from Windows Explorer, I get the following error message:
"Unexpected Internal Error "80040154"
This even happens with the QuickBooks sample company. The file opens normaly if opened from within QuickBooks.
I have tried re installing QuickBooks. I even tried a fresh installation of Quickbooks on a new computer. The same error occured :(
