Thanks for the update Dan. My implementation is completely Matrix options
which didn't seem to work real well with your export facility. I tried tweaking it
to fit my products and didn't have much luck. I was able to generate my export
files, including using the ITEMADJ QuickBooks transaction using IC tags
(have I said before how easy it is to do stuff with IC... anyway), but my real
dilemma is knowing whether the files I'm creating are accurate. I've poked around
the QuickBooks site at their examples and they don't quite cover. Having a set of
example export files that I can reverse engineer for my products I think is what
I really need; though I could be wrong.
