If that doesn’t do the trick, try rebuilding your data file at File > Utilities > Rebuild Data. You may need to do it 3-5 times before it clears up.
I think I remember you telling me at one point that you were a reseller for some of the third party Utilities or Applications designed to extract and modify data contained in the QuickBooks Databases…
I need to “Transfer” the Vendor and Customer information from one QuickBooks Database/Company to a new QuickBooks Database/Company…
I have done some brief research on this task, and it seems like there are several ways to do this, with varied results…
I am hoping you might have a reliable solution that could do this for me…
My only thing is once again the time frame…
This transfer is for a Marina that has a restaurant on the lake…
This weekend is 4th of July weekend, and they want to be using the new company file a couple days prior to the 4th…
I can use any advice or recommendation you have on this…
I would be willing to purchase a plugin or some sort of external utility if it would help…
I also recommend changing your settings to Detail item descriptions sent for customer charge account transactions only so you don’t blow through the file size and/or list limits in QuickBooks Pro/Premier which will force an expensive upgrade to QuickBooks Enterprise.
To allow for the Independence Day holiday, you might need to send payroll a day earlier than usual. Doing so will help you to comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act and ensure timely payroll tax payments.
If your normal paycheck date is on 7/4/11, you should:
- Change your paycheck date for your direct deposit employees to Friday, 7/1/11.
- Send your payroll by 5 p.m. Pacific Time on Wednesday, 6/29/11.
If your paycheck date is immediately before or after Independence Day, consult the table that follows to find out when to send your payroll and when your account will be debited.
*Accounts are typically debited before regular banking hours, so you should make sure you have funds in your account to cover the payroll onthe day before the actual debit occurs.
