Hello,

I have create a SQL Server Agent job that reads data from the QuickBooks database using the file name and populates it into excel. I was able to get the job to run correctly the first time; however, when I run the job again, it fails because it isn't able to connect to QuickBooks a second time. If I reboot my computer, it will run again 1 time and then fail after that again. What service would it be starting when it runs the first time that would be blocking any subsequent jobs?

Thank you in advance for your help.

J

Jeff when i did a project using rssbus for quickbooks i ended up writing an application that read qb info into tables on my server, so i had snaphots of the data that was only as stale as the last time the app executed. I found that method to be much more reliable for me, but.my processes didnt need up to thensecond differences in the data.

Qb32.exe is obviously the main process, but the locking of the linked server im not sure of.

Ya. I am trying to set up a job that updates the tables on a nightly basis. I have tried to restart the DB32 to see if it would run again but it still doesn't work. Any other input from the community?

Thank you,
Jeff

Hello Folks,

I still haven't been able to fix this issue. I can't figure out why I can't access QuickBooks from SQL Server Agent once the package is already ran one time. Any thoughts at all?

Thank you,
Jeff
