Now applied to CVS:

* Quickbooks updates:

  - Updated documentation.
  - Installation fixes.
  - Rewrite of the IIF generation query page:
    - Can query by order number range, date range, or "since last 
    - Allow specification of QuickBooks invoice number to be used
      and incremented during IIF generation.   
    - Filters out deleted orders.  
  - IIF Generation changes:
    - Use the country name instead of the country code.
    - Some filter updates (the period is not as dangerous as it looks).

The new code (4.9 CVS) is currently set to generate IIF files that will 
import into the Quickbooks 2003 example company file.  However, since many 
users customize their QuickBooks installation, then it becomes necessary to 
customize the IIF generator.
