QuickBooks Transfer Utilities
As QuickBooks becomes ever more pervasive as the de facto standard for bookkeeping in this country, more and more programs are being developed to interface with it and magnify its usefulness. I am constantly on the lookout for such programs that can make using QuickBooks more efficient for both lay people and us accounting pros.
I've just learned about another useful set of utilities to allow transfers between QuickBooks files and to combine data from several different QuickBooks files into one that have been developed by a CPA in Texas, Karl E Irvin, based on Microsoft Access. The Transfer program only works with QuickBooks 2002 and 2003, while the Combiner program works with any version of QuickBooks and can even combine data from different versions. You can download demo versions of each program from Karl's website and test them before you decide whether or not to pay the $45 to buy each of the full power versions.
