Troubleshooting - How do I get Timeframe information - Sales by Hour reporting using QODBC

Problem Description:

This is a no technical question but one I need to answer myself before jumping into QODBC. I'm considering working with QODBC to get the information we can't get easily from QuickBooks reports. I want to ask people working with QODBC and QB and QB POS if QODBC can access and work with information related to the time of purchases. For example, view items that sell the most at 11 AM or between 4 and 5 PM and also see what those items are. I don't know if this information is located on the QB or the QB POS file. If someone could tell me If I could access this type of information, I could start working with QODBC. I would appreciate any help. 


You can use the below query to get Timeframe information using QODBC.

For Example:

SELECT {fn HOUR(TimeCreated)} as Hour, SalesLineQuantity as Qty, Type, RefNumber as Num, SalesLineItemRefFullName as Item, SalesLineDesc as Memo, SalesLineRate as SalesPrice, SalesLineAmount as Amount, TimeModified, CustomFieldContract as Contract# FROM SalesLine NOSYNC where (TxnDate >= {d'2007-12-01'} and TxnDate <={d'2007-12-31'}) and {fn CONVERT( {fn HOUR(TimeCreated)}, SQL_VARCHAR)} = '22' and SalesLineType='Item' and SalesLineItemRefFullName is not null and SalesLineQuantity > 0 order by SalesLineQuantity DESC, SalesLineItemRefFullName

Where '22' is the hour using a 24-hour format.
(TxnDate >= {d'2007-12-01'} and TxnDate <={d'2007-12-31'}) is the start and end date for the report
