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?)

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.

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 client has a server 2016 box.  They want to access the server remotely via Remote desktop to access QuickBooks database file and network share drives.  Will they be able to access without having a terminal server license?

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?

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.

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.

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'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.

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.
