We've developed a complex database for a film company which has "VENDORS", "TALENT" and "CREW" members
It's CLIENT and PROJECT centric and all setup and working with budgeting, invoicing, invoice due dates, client balance....etc.

We cannot export to IIF file type. FMPro does not offer that option in our Export Records function.

We really need a product like "www.fmbooksconnector.com" which now only supports Windows/Vista which has our solution need to PUSH clients and invoices into Quickbooks.

Our company is a "Windows Free" environment.
All machines are running Mac OSX 10.5 or Snow Leopard.
All machines running Filemaker Pro 9.

We would like to know if you have any developments in supporting Mac.

If not, could you please refer a solution for our company into this problem?

For now the FM Books Connector will only be available for the Windows platform.  This is because Intuit has not released a Mac compatible Software Development Kit (SDK). 

As an alternative the plug-in will operate properly with Windows running on the Intel Mac. This would also require the installation of FileMaker and QuickBooks for Windows on the Intel Mac

Since we cannot develop this Mac plug-in without the Mac compatible SDK, if you would like to put pressure on Intuit to release this SDK, it would be greatly appreciated. The best method would probably be to post a request on the Intuit Developer forum and the Intuit Community forum. Here are the direct links:

You may even want to post a new topic rather than a comment to the threads or both!
