Receive Check and Deposit Directly to Bank
« on: June 12, 2012, 07:01:40 PM »
The Challenge:

Payments against invoices are received in FileMaker, invoices do not exist in QB and do not want to create invoices in QB.
Within FM we are going to create the deposit list of checks received against the invoices in FM.

The objective is to post the received checks to the customers account in QB and have it deposited to the bank accounts, in a single process.

We do not want to receive against an invoice then make deposit to bank with in QB.
Go directly from check received in FM to deposit in bank in QB.

What is the single command that would be called or is it a series of commands?


Have a great day!

I'm not clear on your objective. Creating a Deposit transaction that identifies an Income account in the "DepositLineAdd::AccountRef" element will keep the books balanced but may fall short of your goal. The check does not become a ReceivePayment transaction, and so will not be listed among a Customer's Transactions even when a Customer is identified in the Deposit transaction's "DepositLineAdd::EntityRef" element.
