Ok, I was hoping to finally ditch the QB train with SB Accounting 2006, it is
very promising except how the heck do you batch send invoices as emails, if
you select more than one the email is greyed out, is there a way to do this?

Just when you thought you were free of QB it pulls you back in with all its
features.

It will take SBA quite some time to be a real competitor to QB.

You could do this with the SDK however.
Why are you assuming the OP is a programmer with enough skills to accomplish
the task?

Why are you not? I would rather know it is at least possible if I had a
real need for it. Then decide if I wanted to try it myself or hire someone
for the task. Heck someone in the sdk group may even roll it if the
challenge is posted.

Even with my technical background (OS, programming, networking) on midrange
and mainframe systems I would not really want to use any SDK just to get my
imports sorted out.

For my POS interface into QB I currently extract my POS data into an Excel
file, convert this within Excel to an .iif file which I then import into QB.

What I am looking for is some simple tool within SBA that not only allows me
to import master data using Excel but goes one step further and use Excel
also for any kind of transaction data. The need for automation and
integration becomes more and more important, thus comprehensive import tools
should be included in an application like SBA. And after there is already a
QB transaction import option why not just "beef" that up and make it
application independent. That shouldn't be too difficult and would allow
importing my POS and web-application data.

Regarding using an SDK I once downloaded the one for QB as I thought I
figure out how to setup a direct interface from RMS to QB. Well, this is
something that takes time (if you are not a Windows programmer) and I just
don't want to go through that learning curve (and pain) again. It's too time
consuming. Instead, I would rather purchase some third party tool, with all
it's quirks and limitations (not all of them have both). However, I feel
strongly that the import tool should be included in the application (and
should be supported by the app. provider).

I agree and suspect there will be a handful of such tools in the near
future.
