QXL options and settings
QXL options and settings/Configuration:
The first step in configuring the application is to click on the settings icon for QXL options details.
QXL Optimizer Setup:
What is an Optimizer file?
When you access any table, QXL will gather data from QuickBooks and store it in an Optimizer file. When you turn on the Optimizer, QXL will bring some data to a local cache file (the optimizer file) to increase retrieval performance for queries. Next time you query the same table, QXL will request differential records that are added, modified, and deleted from QuickBooks and sync them to the Optimizer file. This way, QXL will have to only get the differential records instead of the entire data set from QuickBooks. As a result, you will notice performance gain compared to working without an optimizer.
Initial data optimization has been benchmarked at up to a 30% reduction in load time. The first time you access a given QuickBooks table, QXL, by default, optimizes access to that data, so the next time you need data from that table, it will be much faster.
The optimizer brings some data to a local cache to increase query retrieval performance. Check to activate the optimizer.
Optimizer Database Folder specifies where the local data store will be saved on disk. The default location %AppData%\QXL - QuickBooks Data Export Data Made Easy\Optimizer is under your Windows login account name under your Documents and Settings folder. The data will be stored in a file in this folder with a name similar to the company file name with a .opt extension. If you store that data somewhere other than the default, click the browse button and select the destination folder. You can change the path of the Optimizer folder by clicking the "Browse" button. With very large company files we suggest running synchronization after hours.
Messages allow you to review message logs from QXL regarding errors and issues communicating with QuickBooks, clear these messages, and review messages produced by the QuickBooks qbXML SDK interface.
