View Full Version : Importing estimates
11-22-2005, 05:16 AM
Hi to All & Gibbo,
Hope you can help me, I have tried importing .iif file for estimate and get message that data is imported but nothing happens. Gibbo, I tried this with your sample .iif file on stadium construction, but no data was imported.

I got the file from my posting and imported it into QB. I changed the date so that I could know if it actually imported. The Estimate was definitely imported., as was the Purchase Order. However, the Sales Order says it was, but wasn't. Not sure what is going on.
We have not been using the IIF file for imports for several years, as the new way is to use xml - so have not actually done any tests on 2005.
We have just completed a set of ActiveX dll's for interacting with MYOB (hopefully on the market in the next week) and are now looking at doing something similar for QuickBooks. We have a client who wants to write invoices from a spreadsheet into QuickBooks, so we are writing a dll for that. A small amount of VB code, define where to get the data, and it will post the invoice into QuickBooks. This will be on the market within a week. Expect that we can sell this into the US market as well. Depending on the demand, other transaction types can follow.
The amount of VB knowledge required to use them is small. The only thing that causes some effort is when you have to do some looping. But when you have a sample app that does it, it isn't difficult to adapt it to a different format.
The MYOB dll's (called MyObjx) expected to sell for $AU195 as a personal version (2 licenses) and $AU299 for a developer license. QB would be similar, though we may market them individually at $US99 for those requiring limited functions.
