    For those finding this message, the preferred way (as of Alpha 5 version 8) to connect Alpha 5 with Quickbooks is:

    1. A5 Enterprise edition
    2. QODBC - define the Quickbook file as an open data source.
    3. Use passive linked tables to read data from QB or Alpha DAO select.
    4. Use Alpha DAO insert and update to add/change records as permitted by Quickbooks.

    I believe there's still an available copy online. A few days ago, I saw someone posting it on this certain website, which unfortunately I forgot to take down. But I remembered it was just there.

    As stated previously, the preferred way to connect is via QODBC. Using Qlinker now would be a journey you shouldn't take given the other alternatives.

    But we do know that you can use the search feature of the messageboard... to find a message that is over 2 years old.

    FYI; On the Quickbooks site, they currently (May 2010) have a listing for third party products that connect to Quickbooks with the following text.
    2. Alpha Five/QLinker by Alpha Software, Inc.ExternalSite_arrow
    QLinker is an Add-on product for Alpha Five. It allows developers to quickly build applications which move data back and forth between QuickBooks and the Alpha Five Database for Windows.

    This is on their Development Tools page http://qbsdk.developer.intuit.com/sd...elopment_Tools

    Yeah, outdated, and I was hoping that my post would alert Alpha and then they would tell Quickbooks to have that listing removed or changed.
