Troubleshooting - Cannot create new table using QODBC / Cannot add a new field to QODBC table

Problem Description:

I'm trying to create a new table with VB Demo.

Can you send me a sample query to do this?

Solutions:

QODBC is an ODBC driver. Please keep in mind that QODBC is not a database tool, but rather a translation tool. QODBC acts as a 'wrapper' around the Intuit SDK so customers can finally get at their QuickBooks data using standard database tools;

You cannot create a new table from VB Demo because QODBC is just reading and writing to QuickBooks Company file via QB SDK. QuickBooks SDK provides data in XML format, and QODBC converts it to a table format.

What you are trying to do a new table in QuickBooks Company file which is not supported. Thus, you cannot create/drop/alter table(s) from VB Demo or QODBC.

But you can use MS Access to create new tables and relationships to create new fields in QB queries based on QB online tables. You could store the Access data on a server as well so the whole solution would be distributed.
