How to enable .net to access Quickbooks company file

To do this You should have :
A) QuickBooksEnterprise (here we used 13)
B) QBSDK  (here we used  12.0)
c) Microsoft Visual Studio 2008

How we can do ?
a.  Open Connection to QuickBooks
b.  Begin session with a company file
c.  Construct set of request messages
d.  Send request to QuickBooks
e.  Receive response messages
f.   End session
g.  Close connection

a. Open Connection to QuickBooks
QBSessionManager mgr = new QBSessionManager();
mgr.OpenConnection(“appID”, “appName”);
/* appID, appName are String Type
appID: empty string for now
»Intended to eventually allow QuickBooks to link to a listing on Solutions Marketplace
appName: name to appear in QuickBooks

b. Begin session with a company file
mgr.BeginSession(@”pathfilename.qbw”, ENOpenMode.omDontCare);
/*  companyFile: path to the company to open
openMode: an enum of desired file mode
»qbFileOpenSingleUser / omSingleUser
»qbFileOpenMultiUser / omMultiUser
»qbFileOpenDoNotCare / omDontCare        */

c. Construct set of request messages
IMsgSetRequest setrq = mgr.CreateMsgSetRequest(“Contry_Name”,            qbXMLMajorVersion, qbXMLMinorVersion);
/*Contry_Name : String Type
qbXMLMajorVersion : short Type
qbXMLMinorVersion : short Type   */
Ex. to apeend request:
ICustomerAdd custadd = setrq.AppendCustomerAddRq();
custadd.Name.SetValue(“ABC infotech”);
custadd.CompanyName.SetValue(“ABC infotech”);

d.Send request to QuickBooks
IMsgSetResponse setres = mgr.DoRequests(setrq);

e. Receive response messages
count the total Responses in responseList
int count =  setres.ResponseList.Count – 1;
Receive  the response which you want
IResponse response = setres.ResponseList.GetAt(i);

f. End Seession

g. Close Connection


After this open your Quickbook Company file in Quickbooks. then run the above code.

How to implement Paging in Apex Salesforce

Put this code in your class & replace your query for myRequestsSetCon:

public ApexPages.StandardSetController myRequestsSetCon {
get {
if(myRequestsSetCon == null) {
myRequestsSetCon = new ApexPages.StandardSetController(Database.getQueryLocator([
select Id, Name, Merchant_Name__c, Requested_Pricing_Change_Effective_Date__c, Status__c, CreatedDate
from Global_Merchant_Pricing_Change__c
where Status__c != ‘Draft’ order by CreatedDate desc

//for(Global_Merchant_Pricing_Change__c c: myRequestsSetCon)
// c.CreatedDate = c.CreatedDate;

// sets the number of records in each page set
return myRequestsSetCon;

// indicates whether there are more records after the current page set.
public Boolean hasNext {
get {
return myRequestsSetCon.getHasNext();

// indicates whether there are more records before the current page set.
public Boolean hasPrevious {
get {
return myRequestsSetCon.getHasPrevious();

// returns the page number of the current page set
public Integer pageNumber {
get {
return myRequestsSetCon.getPageNumber();

// returns the total page numbers of set
public Integer totalPages {
get {
Integer currPageNumber = myRequestsSetCon.getPageNumber();
Integer totalPages = myRequestsSetCon.getPageNumber();
return totalPages;

// returns the first page of records
public void first() {

// returns the last page of records
public void last() {

// returns the previous page of records
public void previous() {

// returns the next page of records
public void next() {;

This is corresponding Visualforce page code:

<apex:form >
<apex:outputPanel id=”RecentRequestsSection”>
<apex:pageBlock rendered=”{!ISNULL(SelectedRequest)}” mode=”maindetail”>
<apex:pageblockTable var=”r” value=”{!myRequests}” width=”100%” style=”margin-top:10px;”>
<apex:column headerValue=”Request Number” style=”text-align:left”>
<apex:outputLink value=”/apex/GNSWeb_GMP_View_Request?id={!r.Id}”>{!r.Name}</apex:outputLink>
<apex:column value=”{!r.Merchant_Name__c}” headerValue=”Merchant”/>
<apex:column headerValue=”Effective Date”>
<apex:outputText value=”{0,date,MMMM’ ‘d’ ‘yyyy}”>
<apex:param value=”{!r.Requested_Pricing_Change_Effective_Date__c}” />
<apex:column value=”{!r.Status__c}” headerValue=”Status”/>
<apex:column headerValue=”Created Date”>
<apex:outputText value=”{0,date,MMMM’ ‘d’ ‘yyyy}”>
<apex:param value=”{!r.CreatedDate}” />

<apex:panelGrid columns=”7″ rendered=”{!ISNULL(SelectedRequest)}”>
<apex:commandLink action=”{!first}” reRender=”RecentRequestsSection”>First</apex:commandlink>
<apex:commandLink action=”{!previous}” reRender=”RecentRequestsSection” rendered=”{!hasPrevious}”>Previous</apex:commandlink>
<apex:outputText value=”Previous” rendered=”{!NOT(hasPrevious)}”/>
<apex:commandLink action=”{!next}” reRender=”RecentRequestsSection” rendered=”{!hasNext}”>Next</apex:commandlink>
<apex:outputText value=”Next” rendered=”{!NOT(hasNext)}”/>
<apex:commandLink action=”{!last}” reRender=”RecentRequestsSection”>Last</apex:commandlink>
<apex:outputLabel value=”[Page {!pageNumber} of {!totalPages}]” />
