QODBC POS could not access to QuickBooks POS Company File
When set QODBC POS DSN to access the company file that is running in QuickBooks POS (Version 10), it will fail to connect to the company file. QuickBooks POS will search for the server with no response.
There is limitation QuickBooks POS SDK 10 that it will not able to get current open company file name & thus QODBC POS is not able to connect currently open company file.
2) Build Connection String:
3) In company file selection window, QODBC POS will give you a list of all available company file (may take a few seconds) :
4) Select the company file you want to access, and then click ok. then you will see the connection string has been built in "Current Company Setting" option. And then please click "Test Connection" Button, QuickBooks POS will ask you to grant permission to QODBC POS:
5) Click "Yes Always" button. If QODBC POS tells you the connection is successful, then you can use our test tools VB Demo to view QuickBooks POS records via QODBC POS. Please select VB Demo via Windows Start->All Programs-> QODBC Driver for use of QuickBooks POS->VB Demo:
6) Select DSN "QuickBooks POS Data" and click OK, now you can use SQL statement to access QuickBooks POS:
