6. Support and Licensing Information NOTE: To use these filters, Microsoft Excel 97 and Microsoft Small Business Financial Manager 97 must be installed on your computer.
1. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
A. Quit Microsoft Excel 97, if it is running. B. Copy the Aapqbw50.dll file to the SBFM folder on your computer's hard disk. By default, this is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Sbfm.
2. PROBLEMS IMPORTING ACCOUNTING DATA FROM INTUIT QUICKBOOKS 5.0
Before you import accounting data from QuickBooks 5.0 for Windows, you must register QuickBooks and disable all password protections on the data. In addition, if you have Quickbooks set to automatically enter memorized transactions, this should be disabled while running the Financial Manager filter. If you don't, you may receive a series of error messages, which you should clear by pressing ENTER in response to each. If you encounter problems importing accounting data from QuickBooks 5.0 for Windows, you should run the QuickBooks utility to rebuild your accounting data, and then try importing again. To run the QuickBooks repair utility, choose Rebuild Data on the QuickBooks File:Utilities menu.
3. PROBLEMS WITH ACCOUNTS BEING INCORRECTLY CLASSIFIED IN FINANCIAL MANAGER
Occasionally, when importing Quickbooks 5.0 data, accounts end up in the wrong category. This causes Financial Manager reports to be incorrect. If this occurs, use the Remap menu item on the Accounting Menu within Microsoft Excel to correctly map your data to the proper account categories.
4. DIFFERENCES IN ACCOUNT NUMBERS BETWEEN INTUIT QUICKBOOKS 5.0 AND
FINANCIAL MANAGER If you use account numbers when setting up accounts in Quickbooks, these account numbers will not appear on Financial Manager reports. Financial Manager will create its own account numbers to ensure that reports are sorted correctly.
5. DIFFERENCES IN QUANTITY SOLD BETWEEN INTUIT QUICKBOOKS 5.0 AND FINANCIAL
MANAGER When entering an invoice in Quickbooks 5.0, if you do not enter a sales price and quantity, it will default to a quantity of 1 when creating reports. This quantity is not an accurate reflection of the transaction. Financial Manager will use a quantity sold of 0 for these transactions, which properly reflects what was entered in the invoice. This will cause some differences between the quantity sold reported in Financial Manager and that reported in Quickbooks 5.0.
