Multiple QB Communication/Switching
« on: December 18, 2011, 01:01:03 PM »

I want to be able to communicate with 1 QB file by just using a file path; and then close that session and then establish a different session with a different QB using a different file path.

Is there a way to do this without having to open the QB file(s) first before sending the plugin requests?

Yes, durring the initial connection between FileMaker and QuickBooks if you select the radio button that allows the FMBooks Connector to talk to QuickBooks even when it is not open. Check that box and you should have the functionality you are looking for.

You can test this with the demo file supplied iwth the downlod of the plug-in. Go through the initial setup with QuickBooks open, then close QuickBooks and use the path option in the demo file and you should be able to communicate with the chosen file without QuickBooks not open.
