    Default QReportBuilder not Connecting

    I am trying to connect QBR with QB Online and nothing is happening. I downloaded the QODBC and followed the instructions. I run QBR and it still has the sample company data.

    You went through the connection information that is specifically for QB Online? It's a much different setup procedure and is not preset within the QRB product. You have to supply your unique connection information.

    You should also download the latest trial version of QODBC from QODBC.com and install that driver.

    Intuit has been very fluid with QB Online and is in a constant state of change with it.

    I have connected to it successfully, but days later and to redo it because of changes by Intuit.

    I downloaded the lastest QODBC driver from QOBDC.com. I setup the driver per their instructions. I open QReportBuilder and I don't connect. Am I missing something?

    yes, I did and I keep getting unable to find host/server. I downloaded Crystal Reports and had it connected within 5 minutes and same with Microsoft Excel.

    Has this issue resolved with the test version that I sent to you privately?

    I am having the same issues connecting the trial version to QB Online - getting the server/host not found error message
    I have rebuilt the String numerous times - logging into QBO to get the information etc required.

    I have the ODBC driver installed and I can connect through that in Excel w/o a problem.

    I have been unable to get any response from FLexQuarters to any inquiries I have had.

    thanks,
    Stuart
