If for some reason you do not see what you need within the Transaction Pro Exporter for QuickBooks (“TPE”) we have more options available via our command line interface. Our command line parameters are just additional “switches” that you can add to the Transaction Pro Exporter shortcut.
We will discuss some of the more common command line parameters below. You can find a full list of all the command line parameters here.
Add Additional User Defined Fields to the Mapping (/USER_FIELDS=10)
You can add up to an additional 100 user defined fields if you enable this command line. Common uses of these user defined fields are to add a column for which they can provide a static company identifier in the file that they are sending to the fulfillment center.
Add Additional Fields to Transaction Exports that Exist on the Customer Card Only
Often times users require fields that appear on the customer card only but not on the actual transaction. Below is a listing of additional customer fields that you can add.
- Show customer message on sales transactions (/SHOW_CUSTOMER_MESSAGE)
- Show email address on sales transactions (/SHOW_EMAIL)
Include Inactive Items (/INCLUDE_INACTIVE)
By default TPE pulls active list items only. If you enable this command line parameter the customer, vendor and account list exports will include both the active and the inactive list items.
Example of How to Set a Command Line Parameter
Lets say we want to pull active and inactive accounts. In order to add this command line parameter follow the steps below.
- Right mouse click on the shortcut for Transaction Pro Exporter
- Select properties
- In the target box leave a space after the closing quote and add /INCLUDE_INACTIVE (see sample screen shot below)
