Troubleshooting - Upgrading to QuickBooks and QODBC

Problem Description:

I have a custom program written in Access 2003 communicating with QuickBooks 2013 using QODBC 13 which works fine. Will upgrading to latest QuickBooks and QODBC require any code changes to the Access 2003 program.

Problem Description:

Our company uses the QODBC Driver for QuickBooks to synchronize data between our Microsoft Access database and QuickBooks. We push customers, jobs, cheques and items from Access to QB as well as pulling data from QB to Access for reports. We are upgrading from QuickBooks Pro 2011 to QuickBooks Enterprise (latest) and need a developer/consultant to assist in checking/upgrading queries and code to work with the new versions of QODBC/QB.  


It is unlikely that you will have a problem as QODBC is upwards compatible with QuickBooks so the same queries you have running now should continue to work.

Suggest you purchase the latest version of QODBC which supports the latest version of QuickBooks, then run some tests, if you have any trouble with connections please refer:

Or Raise a Support Ticket

There shall be no code change required in your MS-Access Application/Queries, and it should be able to work with Latest QuickBooks & QODBC.

Additional Information:
With every release of QuickBooks/QODBC, there might be new fields or features added. If you want to leverage the new fields, you will have to re-linking the tables in Access. Refer: How to Re-Link QuickBooks Data in MS Access using QODBC

Please refer below mentioned a link to get details about the updated QODBC table & report schema as well as the relation between tables. You will also get details about each report column, parameters which are supported. You can also view all table/columns details.
