Extracting reference data from QuickBooks
QuickBooks Pro 5 exports a
reference file of list information which must
be loaded into Timer in each using
computer. Names, service items, or
classes cannot be added in Timer. It
will require export of a new list file,
loading it into some or all using computers. Try to make sure that all the data that might be needed in Timer for the next few days, is entered into QuickBooks before you extract this file.
In QuickBooks (from the menu bar) select
ExportLists getting the following screen.
screen receives the name to be used for the list file and where it is to be placed. How you plan to
pass data between computers will depend on your own office situation, but most often this will be done on a
floppy disk, so we will cover that here. Provide a meaningful file name (possibly pre-labeled on a floppy
reserved for this purpose). File suffix will be set at
(Intuit Interchange Format). Drop the list under
Drives andselect the a:
(specifying your floppy disk drive). Place your disk in its slot and hit OK, (or Enter). After
the file transfer, remove and label the floppy.
From here to next lines in this style, useful to be copied for
distribution around an office. Want book name on each page,
perhaps copyright notice.
