Inside this Issue
With tax season behind us, it’s time to hit the road and spread the word about all of the technology developments in the marketplace. I’ll be speaking at the CalCPA show at the LAX Hilton on June 5, at the Seattle Accounting Technology Bootcamp on June 7, and then head to Las Vegas for the AICPA Tech+ show on June 10-13. I’ll also be presenting a series of Webinars on how Bill.com’s web-based AR, AP and Cash Flow management products really deliver on the new paradigms of Chunkification, Zero Entry, and Collaborative Accounting Services I’ve been talking about for the past few years.
I’m also proud to announce the release of our 2012 Consultant’s Reference Guide. Thanks so much to Deborah Pembrook, Charlie Russell, and the team for helping so much on this, our 14th Edition of the best QuickBooks reference guide on the planet. Ok, I’m biased, but this guide goes deeper on more topics that I’ve been able to find anywhere else. It focuses in on the types of topics that you won’t find in the manuals or training guides, because we know that consultants are often dealing with those thorny issues that aren’t supposed to happen. Anyway, I hope you’ll get the book, and I guarantee you’ll be happy when you do.
We are opening registration for our ninth annual Acccounting Solutions Conference this next week, next month we will open registration for our 2012 nine-city Small Business Techology Road Show seminar series.
As an accounting professional, you’re required to transfer sensitive information every day in tax returns, payroll reports, financial statements, QuickBooks or Peachtree files, and other financial documents. Most of us would just attach these items to an email, but is that really the safest, smartest way to share information?
Considering the ever-increasing security risks associated with internet communication and especially email, it’s more important than ever for accountants to find secure means of file transfer that help them protect both their business and their clients’ information.
We have just released our QuickBooks 2012 Consultant’s Reference Guide. This troubleshooting guide is packed with techniques to diagnose and fix your clients’ QuickBooks files. Its in-depth material helps you through some of the most difficult issues you will confront as a consultant. It includes easy-to-understand steps and screenshots to guide you through the trickiest problems.
This edition includes an extensive new chapter on Inventory written by Charlie Russell, editor of the QuickBooks and Beyond Blog. This chapter offers a thorough understanding of inventory, including in manufacturing environments. Also included with this edition are all the new features of QuickBooks 2012 and Enterprise 12, such as Batch Timesheets, the Inventory Center, the new Inventory features, Period Copy and more.
Whether you are a new QuickBooks consultant or a seasoned expert, you will learn new procedures and best practice recommendations. Order your copy today.

Every day, members of the Sleeter Group Consultants Network tackle the day-to-day problems of their clients in the real world. The following is an example problem-and-solution that surfaced this month on our Sleeter Consultants’ Experts Forum.
Question: What is the best way to enter multiple inventory part items when the only thing differentiating them is the color? A new client has the same stock items in each of 8 woods. The add/edit multiple list function doesn’t handle inventory part items. Is this a job for an add-on utility?
Christine Steele responded: If you’ve got the information in Excel, you can import it into QuickBooks.
Barbara Sonin responded: POS has the capability to handle this as it’s a common store issue (e.g., T-shirt is available in 6 colors and 5 sizes).
Joan Brackman answered: The add/edit multiple list function does handle inventory part numbers. But you have to be sure inventory is turned on. Go to Preferences, Items & Inventory, Company Preferences and make sure that "inventory and purchase orders are active" box is checked. Then you will have inventory parts as an option in the Add/Edit multiple list function. I would use Excel, but match the columns in the add/edit list function with the order in your Excel spreadsheet. Then cut from Excel a column at a time and paste it into QuickBooks. I think this is the easiest way. You can import from Excel file, but then you have to map headings and it is a bit more complicated. Before you begin any import, you may want to consider whether you want to set up each cabinet as a parent item and the colors below as sub items.
