[archive] Acucobol Integration to Quickbooks

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 12 January 2011]

Has anyone written an integration to Quickbooks from an Acucobol GT program? Specifically, I want to integrate, in batch mode, into Quickbooks GL.

RE: [archive] Acucobol Integration to Quickbooks

Yes, we've written one to post journal entries, add customers, and post credit memos. We do it in batch mode. Almost all the code is written in a .Net C# DLL to integrate with QuickBooks. We simply call classes in the DLL from AcuCobol to do the things we want.

For example, the posting of journal entries uses a posting class, passing the path to a text file that contains the items to post. The adding of customers uses an add-customer class, passing the items needed to add a customer. The credit memo posting works the same way.

Intuit offers a very robust SDK for accessing QB from external applications, including lots of .Net example code.
