problem posting an bill
« on: January 25, 2011, 02:13:32 PM »
when posting a bill to quickbooks, (I use the vendor ID provided by quickbooks - VendorRef::ListID ) and it seems to work well.

I have a worrisome problem.

I have one vendor ID that I post a "BillAdd" to that seems to execute successfully but does reflect in quickbooks. I do get back a "TxnID" from the "BillAdd". But again, not bill shows up under that vendor.

The odd thing is that for the 3 other vendors I am using for this first time development task, all others work as expected. Bills are added, TxnID's are returned, and the vendor has the invoice in QB 2008.

It could be something dumb. can you give me any obvoius dumb reasons this would work like this. I should state that I have been changing vendor names to test the ability of my scripts to catch non-valid vendors.

If BillAdd request returns a TxnID it means the bill was added successfully. You can parse the Vendor Name using from the BillAdd Response using this:

PCQB_RsGetFirstFieldValue( "VendorRef:FullName" )

That way you'll know to which vendor QB assigned the Bill.

Filemaker Bill-

Don't suppose you'd be willing to post a screenshot of your script?

BillAdd is my next project.  Would love a head start.
