Troubleshooting - How to Re-Link QuickBooks Data in MS Access using QODBC

Problem Description 1:

We are adding invoice records to QuickBooks using an Access front end.  When we create the records and try to insert into QB the line items seem to go but when the invoice header is inserted we get an error that the Child Record must be inserted before Header Record in BuildXMLHeader.  I have examined the data being passed and it all looks correct.

Problem Description 2:

I upgraded my QB Premier Plus Professional Services to 2016 (from 2014). I skipped updating to 2015.

I installed the new QODBC connector, but cannot connect to my access database. I have tried to uninstall the MS Access Database driver, But I get the error message ODBC call failed- Error 10004.

Problem Description 3:

I have MS Access database which contains QuickBooks Data as the linked table. Recently I have changed my Optimizer file path & after changing Optimizer path I am facing slow performance issue.

How can I solve this issue?


You need to re-link MS Access linked table to resolve the issue. Delete old linked table & re-link it.

After changing optimizer file path, you need to Re-Link linked table in MS Access because your MS Access Linked table contains old Optimizer file path.

Please Note: Linked Table Manager in MS Access will not update Optimizer file path, you need to Re-Link linked table in MS Access to solve this issue.

Solution to this issue is to re-create the linked table.
