Troubleshooting - Can I use QODBC with QBB ( QuickBooks backup ) file

Problem Description:

I am trying to find a way we can pull data from a .QBB file without having to restore the .QBB file and/or go through QuickBooks.

Is QODBC capable of doing so? I watched a few videos and it appeared that all files used were regular company files.
 

Solution:

It is not possible to pull data from a .QBB file without having to restore the .QBW file and/or go through QuickBooks because QuickBooks SDK does not provide this feature.

The only way that QuickBooks allows us to access any data is if there is a QuickBooks session running on the machine with the company file is loaded.

QODBC is an ODBC driver for QuickBooks. It uses the QuickBooks SDK to communicate with QuickBooks, which means if Intuit doesn’t expose one feature to the application in SDK, QODBC could not do it either.
