Connecting to QuickBooks
Establishing a Connection shows how to authenticate to QuickBooks and configure any necessary connection properties. You can create a connection profile by clicking Get Data and selecting From QuickBooks on the CData ribbon.
You can also configure add-in capabilities through the available Connection properties, from data modeling to firewall traversal. The Advanced Settings section shows how to set up more advanced add-in configurations and troubleshoot connection errors.
Configuring a Connection Profile
You can configure access control in a connection profile by defining the operations allowed against QuickBooks data and store the profile in the workbook to make the workbook easy to share. See Managing Connections for more configuration options for connection profiles.
Connecting from Excel
The add-in adds controls to the Excel ribbon, standard Excel formulas, and VBA classes for writing macros.

In addition, the Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and UK editions are supported starting from 2003. The QuickBooks Point of Sale and QuickBooks for Mac editions are not supported.
