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 :(

I have QuickBooks Pro 2009
and Don't really want to do Quickbooks Online

I was wondering if anyone knew of a tool that would Automatically send out Memorized and Standard Reports from my quickbooks file.

Either just creating them and putting them in a folder on my computer or even better automatically emailing them out every so often.

Is there a way to get some sort of email alert when there is a new update available for Quickbooks? For some reason, there is always one user that forgets that everyone has to update Quickbooks at the same time, so I would like to disable to prompting for automatically installing the updates. On the other hand, I don't want to fall too far behind on an update. Can anyone point me to a resource (RSS, mailing list, etc) that may provide this information?

Hello,
I have a customer that owns a large-scale potato farm, and wants to run his operation using Quickbooks 2009 Premier Manufacturing edition.

Currently, they are using a very large spreadsheet to manage their inventory.

Once the potatoes are harvested, they are entered into inventory as a number of hundredweights (cwt) by variety (russets, round whites, etc).  They are then sorted into different sizes, by variety.

As the farm receives orders for shipment, the individual varieties are packaged.  An order may come in for 2 1/2" to 3" russets in 50-pound bags, so a certain number of cwt's of russets of the desired size are taken out of the russet inventory, placed into bags, and shipped out.  In the end, a number of cwt's of russets have been used to manufacture a different product.

Where the customer is falling short is how this is handled in Quickbooks.  On the spreadsheet it's easy to receive in a truck full of russets.  Then as they are sorted, they manually deduct from the russet inventory and increase the russet 2 1/2"-3" inventory, the russet 3"-4" inventory, etc.  As they are sold, they can deduct from the sorted inventories manually and add to the "sold" column for a particular customer.  We just don't see how to handle all of this in Quickbooks and still have an accurate number represented at all times from the original and converted inventories.

I have an Access 2000 program handling the receiving of goods in the company.
I need to Export Inventory Items and Quantities to Quickbook (enterprise 2007?). I have a good handle on the Access program, but know nothing about quickbooks.
Can this be done? What would I need for it?

I am creating recurring invoices for some of my customers.  On the customer setup I have the preferred send method set to none.  When I generate the recurring invoices the process fails because the customer does not have an email address assigned (if I double-click the recurrence to generate the invoice both mail and email are selected).  How do I set this up so that neither email or mail is selected on the invoice?

So I have any .qwb file - How do I go about determining which version of Quickbooks was used to create that file?

For example: I have a 2002 Pro .qwb file - Is there any way to know that it's a 2002 Pro version and not a 2008 version? I need to do this because I need to know which version of the SDK to specify so as to avoid using functionality not available to the file.

Using VS 2008 with QBFC SDK latest version

I'm trying to do the following:

When given a version of the SDK to use, or even more generally the version of quickbooks used to create a given .qbw file, how can I dynamically determine whether or not any of the methods/functions present in the overall SDK are available to be used?

For example: Method A was put in place in SDK 6.0, but I am opening my connection specifying the SDK to use only its 5.0 methods, how can I have the program automatically know that Method A is not available for it.

I know I could just do an absolutely massive hard coding of all of the methods with their associated earliest SDK versions, but I am really looking for a way to know dynamically which methods are supported given any particular version of the SDK. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

I'm using the most recent version of the SDK with QBFC.

It seems that QuickBooks users need admin rights to their folders for QB to work correctly. I want my QB users to only see the files in the QB folder. How should I consider setting things up in AD for them to only get to QB and their own personal directory?

It looks like they can see anything they want. I don't do this enough to really know all the changes I need to make. Thanks

VPN is not fast enough to work with QuickBooks Enterprise 9 and, in fact, its use is frowned upon by Intuit.  Conseqently, my sales staff each log into a our plant via VPN and access that computer's QB client via Remote Desktop.  Does anyone know of a commercial product that would allow multiple Remote Desktop connections to multiple QB clients ON THE SAME MACHINE?

Since I started using Vista 64 bit a few months ago,  I have been having printer lock up problems.   I cannot go to printer setup without the program locking up. When I reconcile a credit card, it also locks up. It has  something to do with my Quickbooks PDF COnverter Printer.
Quickbooks support could not solve the problem.

Every time I try to enter a sales receipt for a customer, the Quickbooks Web Browser pops up first. It is very annoying and unnecessary. How can you disable this feature or otherwise stop this from happening?

We use a php signup form on our website when a customer needs to sign up for our services.

We use quickbooks and I would like to setup our php form so when someone fills it out, a xls file is sent to our billing department so they can import that into quickbooks so they dont have to manually add the client....is this possible?
