Thanks for the reference to my blog article on this, Mike

Mike, regarding your statement "a few years ago I heard from other software developers that QuickBooks changed its database architecture and required that all participants in their software development kit program upgrade and standardize on their new version. This not only caused grief for the developers, who had to immediately retool all their QuickBooks processes, it also forced all users to upgrade to the latest version of QuickBooks." When you say "a few years ago", do you mean back in 2005? Prior to that Intuit didn't really have an SDK, they had a low level interface that was limited. Around then the SDK came out, and it was a great improvement over prior interfaces. Standardization was good in this case. Or, are you referring to a bit over a year ago, with the "IPP" interface? In that case, your description doesn't apply. Intuit ENCOURAGES developers to use the newer interface, BUT does NOT require it. The prior SDK still exists and all products that use it continue to work just fine, and will work with upcoming releases of QuickBooks. This is based on my experience with writing software that works with QuickBooks (the SDK in fact).

Scott, one fly in the ointment with this. If you use a third party program of any sort, the new fields are NOT accessible. This means any of the import/export tools, the ODBC driver, and any SDK based product. This is a major shortcoming that I hope Intuit rectifies in the future.

Hey, Scott, one addendum. The limit of 14,500 for the combination of other names, customers, vendors and employees - there ALSO is a limit of 10,000 names of any particular type. So you can only have 10,000 customers in Pro/Premier. Or 10,000 vendors. The TOTAL is limited to 14,500. ____ Charlie Russell
