Very often when we talk about updates of your version of QuickBooks people don’t always know what version (or revision) they are running. It is simple to determine as I’ll show here.
A common question – someone creates a new invoice and saves it, and the “Paid” stamp shows up even though a payment hasn’t been received.
QuickBooks maintains a list of the company files that you have opened recently – the Previous Company list. You will see this if you select the Open Previous Company from the File menu, or in the No Company Open screen. Deleting the company file from your hard drive won’t get it off that list.
If you customize the columns that are displayed in the item list you will see a field named location. Everyone gets excited when they see this – locations in QuickBooks! However, this is misleading.
When a Sales Receipt is paid by credit card certain information is grayed out and un-editable. This includes the Customer:Job field in the top left corner of the Sales Receipt Screen.

I’ m not sure what versions this will occur in. There is a limit of 100 price level lists in QuickBooks. In some cases if you hit that number, then delete some lists and add some more, the deleted lists are still counted by QuickBooks and so your new ones won’t show in that report. […]
When editing an invoice (etc.) template in QuickBooks you will see a project field, but you cannot add it to the screen. A common question is “why not?” – as people would like to use that field.
