    Default Quickbooks Simple Start problems?

    Hey All,
    I downloaded a trial of Report Builder, but I can't get it connect. Reading through the product spec I was pretty sure Simple Start supported but is it not..?

    Any advice would be appreciated. Many Thanks,

    Graham.

    Do you have Quickbooks open on the same machine where QRB is running?

    Also, the default project has data from a QB sample company that you can use..

    I'm not sure about Simple Start... Don't have it to try...

    Hi Al,

    Yes I do have it open on the machine. I know the default project has sample data but to test this properly I really would like to see how it handles my data.

    Any other thoughts?

    Many Thanks,

    Graham.

    I'm checking with the development team to see if Simple Start is supported...

    Graham,

    The development team reports that SS should work. I've downloaded SS and it's working for me with the sample company file.

    Step 1 of what should happen when you connect to QB for the first time is that you should get a dialog from QB authorizing another program to use the QB company file.

    Do you get that or an you look for it? It may be hidden under some other windows.


    Perhaps you should try a sample company file, then try your own company file..

    I don't know if the UK version of Simple Start supports use of SDK applications like QReportBuilder - our UK dealer is checking this right now. Are you using the UK or USA edition of QuickBooks Simple Start?

    I downloaded the Simple Start UK version and have successfully imported tables from a sample company file...

    So we need more detail about what is or isn't happening...
