Here are two things we are working on which may
be of interest to you...
has long been in need of an update. Since it was written, much
about QuickBooks has changed--including the introduction of a
cloud-based version, QuickBooks Online.
struggled for some time with exactly how to proceed with an
update. A full rewrite is a big job and takes a long time, but "piecemeal"
updates as short articles, etc., are difficult to manage and
distribute in printed form and/or ebook editions.
We believe we
have a workable strategy now. The plan is to release an
annual update edition in both printed and ebook formats, with an
ever-expanding collection of update articles in each annual
edition. It will include special topics and, in some cases,
replacements for entire chapters of the original Cookbook.
For now, please
stay tuned and look for details about the
Cookbook updates by year's end.
This week we released version 1.1 of FormCalc
SST for QuickBooks
, our spreadsheet-based calculator for QuickBooks
forms. It has a long list of improvements and added convenience
features, plus one new major feature: the ability to send
results to QuickBooks as mixed fractions
When the Show as fractions option is selected for a
spreadsheet cell in FormCalc SST, the results calculated in that cell
are sent to QuickBooks as mixed fractions:
1.75 would be sent as 1-3/4
2.9375 would be sent as 2-15/16
Negative results are surrounded by parentheses. So -2.5
would be sent as (2-1/2)
Who needs this feature? You might be surprised
to learn that we've been asked for this many times in recent
years by users of the old, original FormCalc product. The requests
have mostly come from businesses with a need to show fractional
information on QuickBooks invoices, such as the following:
Lumber and hardwood dealers (lumber dimensions)
Custom signage businesses (sign area)
Dealers in industrial fabric/cloth
Custom sheet metal shops
The best way to see this feature in action is to download
the free 30-day trial
and give it a try!
FormCalc SST works with all QuickBooks desktop editions
(US, UK, Canadian, Australian) for Microsoft Windows...but not
with QuickBooks for the Mac, and not with QuickBooks
