Hi,
Is it possible, without using quickbooks, to extract the info on each
invoice that's in an account
and translate it to another format?
I want to take a 2008 QB qbw file, and make a spreadsheet, or even a text
file, with the invoice
data in it so that it can be viewed without having to open quickbooks every
time.
Thanks for any ideas.

Not unless somebody has an add-on that does what you need/want.

The QB database is proprietary; the only way afaik would be to either
use QB to export the transactions/reports you want (which would, of
course, be static, not dynamic), as above find an existing add-on, or,
if you're capable of writing code, develop an add-on of your own using
the Intuit QB API toolset that the add-on developers use.

You might look at this website: http://www.flexquarters.com/default.htm.

QODBC is an add-on driver to QuickBooks that allows you to extract data
from QB into excel or MS access. I can't remember if it requires QB to
be open at the time of the extraction but it is worth checking. You
could also contact them at FlexQuarters.com and ask them for additional
information.

thanks for the replies,
what I wound up doing was exporting to a csv file and importing
that to excel.
