Twice over the past five months, when reconciling my QuickBooks Pro 2007 account with my bank statement, I have found that the tax amounts for two previously-reconciled paychecks have changed. My accountant, to whom I send my account in a QuickBooks Portable File and who uses a QuickBooks payroll program, says they have not made any changes. By checking backup, I have narrowed the time when these changes occur to the time that the portable file is used for payroll processing. Manually correcting the changed amounts is not an option since they revert to the changed amounts at the next payroll processing period. This seems to be an issue with QuickBooks payroll processing software. Has anyone else had such an experience and, if so, found the cause and a solution? The checks in question had been printed and reconciled at the time the changes occurred and the net pay had been "locked" so these changes should not have occurred.

Thanks for any help.

At our company we accrue vacation over 10 months (Jan to Oct each year). The std Peachtree vacation formula assumes a full calendar year. I need help constructing a Peachtree formula that will stop accruing vacation after October. I can set the amount per check. Something as simple as the following concept:

IF (payroll date > 10/31/08, 0, 3.08) which would accrue 3.08 hours each pay period with a date less than 10/31/08. I don't know the syntax within the Peachtree software to make this happen.

Hi guys

I want to build an HR/Payroll system from scratch.
It needs to be similar to the one I use at the moment which is a website, it is a management information system that many people log in to, to enter and view data from.
For example
Manager A inputs shifts on to a rota for his team of 5 staff members.
The 5 staff members are able to log on to the site (as a basic view only role) which allows them to see what the manager has submitted for them for their monthly timesheet.
The data entered by Manager A and by Admin A about Employee A is able to be manipulated and presented in a pdf report. For example, if I want to know how many times Employee A has been off sick in the past year. Thankfully for me, Manager A has been putting Employee A's periods of sickness on the rota. The system lists these periods of sickness, and all their attributes, from the past 12 months, in a pdf report for me. It also does the same for holidays/annual leave. The system also gives me a pdf-able report of the employees training because Admin A has put on information about every course Employee A has done.

I can also, on my system role, upload documents for managers to view.

I can also export all timesheet entries by CSV so I can import it into another system (Sage).

I am not an experienced IT expert but I am willing to spend years learning how to do this.
I just need someone to give me a map of where to start, what I'll need in terms of resources, and what knowledge I will need to... Read more

In attempting to run payroll yesterday, a window appeared stating "Payroll processing is not permitted when a run is already open in another period." Looking back into July, I found a Payroll Posting Log listed as "Incomplete" and the time on it was about one minute prior to the posting log that was actually posted. So I don't know what happened, maybe a momentary loss of power or wireless signal? The problem is, I can't find a way to access it in order to delete it or cancel it. I had to calculate payroll by hand, which means none of the withholdings, benefits, gross & net pay, etc., are updated.

Help! We no longer have support from Deltek, and can't afford to upgrade to Vision. If I can't access Payroll, one of the most important aspects of the program is gone.

I am the new bookkeeper for a small company. Our local withholding rate has recently changed from 1.0% to 1.7%. I have changed this in the employee defaults, but it still is calculating the 1.0% in each paycheck. Even if I go into an individual employee record, the tax rate is still 1.0%, (after I've changed the defaults.) And, if I change the rate in the individual employee record, the change still doesn't 'take' in the payroll window. It does show the new rate in the employee record, but it's like Quickbooks isn't applying the changes through into the payroll module.

I've followed the Qbks help files, but it just says to change the defaults if the rate change applies to all/most employees. I'm not super familiar with Qbks yet, so maybe it's something easy that I'm missing.

Thanks in advance for all help and suggestions.

I use Excel to prepare payroll for my staff. I have 12 workbooks, one for each month. Each workbook has 3 spreadsheets (departments). Each spreadsheet has 4 tables, one below the other depending how many weeks the month has. Each table has headings for name of employee, rate, social security... and so forth.

I am looking for a way to compile all these workbooks in a way such that I get a total (cumulative) for the entire year for every employee his/her total gross pay, social securities, and the count (no. of weeks worked) - all this into a single table, preferably new workbook.

If this can be done through Excel or Access, please help me. If not, can someone recommend me a payroll program where I prepare payroll, customize social securities, pay date, deductions, additions, hours/day pay by class and get monthly or annual reports such as I am asking.

I have attached a sample of the workbook.

Hello -

I need a formula that is going to look at the YTD earnings and the wage base limit (106800) each week before calculating the formula. So what would a formula be to calculate 6.2% of wages this week taking into consideration that YTD wages are less than 106800, and when they do go over 106800, make the calculation 0, but keep prior week's taxes what they were.

so I used the brackets anyway.

I changed some wording and declared the vars singly

you want.

A:Windows 7 + Quickbooks 2009 Pro + payroll functions

Hi Warden77,
 
After searching from the Intuit QuickBooks website, I find that Intuit QuickBooks 2009 is not fully compatible with Windows 7. The only version of QuickBooks that is compatible with Windows 7 is QuickBooks 2010. To fix the compatibility issue, Intuit’s Technical support suggests to upgrade to QuickBooks 2010. For more information, you may check the following link:
 
http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/Support/Pages/KnowledgeBaseArticle/898435
Note: Since the web site is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.
 

I also would like to suggest you try to run QuickBooks 2009 under Windows Vista Compatibility Mode.
 
1. Right-click the .exe file of the QuickBooks 2009 and choose Properties.
2. Click the "Compatibility" tab.
3. Please check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and choose "Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)".
4. Select "Run this program as an administrator" option under the Privilege Level.
5. Click Apply, click OK.

I have QB 2009 - we had a payroll tax subscription that calculated taxes and we filed our own reports. Suddenly it no longer works and I want to go back to manually calculating the taxes, inputting them and printing the checks. I used to be able to do this.

For 2 days I've been round and round with their tech support and I'm almost to tears every time I try to explain for the nth time and go thru the attempts to update for the nth time.

What is happening is that when I click Employees, pay unscheduled paycheck, then click an employee, it is telling me QB doesn't have all the info it needs and I then get stuck in a loop of screens asking me to verify the NM UI and withholding rates. I can never go past that to get into the paycheck creation screen.

One helpful soul tried to tell me that I would now have to do them through the WRITE CHECK screen. Is this correct? Or is there something else I can do to try to get back to doing it manually? That's going to be a pain if it's true.

I'm an accountant more or less, so I am familiar with all the accounts involved and rates and such.

Thanks
UPDATE: For anyone else going thru this #@#%. FINALLY got a tech who actually helped. I had to go into each employee record, edit the tax info on that employee, remove the state taxes on the "Other" tab, and I was able to get into the create paycheck screen. Thanks to all the 91+ people who looked at my problem so fast!

So First off, I am sure most of you who are looking at this will think it is an easy fix, and trust me I wish it was. I have spent the entire day before this post searching for common fixes to issues, with no luck.

First off, here is the scenario:

I went go get on my PC that has been running flawless since December 2010, and the first thing I notice is it came back from sleep or idle, whatever you want to call it. This seems to happen now and then and I believe it happens because windows installed an update over the night (Wednesday 2/27/13). Normally this is no big deal, I go about my way and all is fine.

So I noticed that some open files I was working on in excel have duplicates, one set is read only, one is not. I closed all that down and we were all set. The other big thing is the Aero feature was dead. So I went online and hit ALL the usual fixes, running the diagnostic, downloading the specific MS diagnostic tool, resetting the service multiple times, restarts, even some registry updates I found. NOTHING worked. The interesting thing is the only part of aero that is not working, is the glass feature, and the peek feature. All the mouse icons and other attributes seem to be working.

I have an Nvidia GTX 460 card, so I updated to the most current form of the drivers, nothing. I delete the drivers and install the original CD drivers, nothing. I then delete the driver and try to use driver sweep to remove them. This is when I notice that I can not boot into safe mod... Read more

If you are looking for a freeware and up for some reading and experimentation then go for VirtualDub. Literally it can do almost anyhting that a paid one can do, but it is really for some techie mind.

Otherwise, you can go for Pinnacle's or Ulead's any home solution products. Those will be cheaper and produces good result and very user friendly. I suggest that you check out Ulead's Video Studio.

A:Malacious Software Infection - Cannot Remove With Spyware Removal Software

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. Before we can get started on fixing your problem you must change the location of Hijackthis. It should not run from a temp directory. Download and run the HijackThis autoinstall program Please choose the default location of C:\Program Files as the destination.Run the program only from that location from now on. It is essential that you follow these steps or certain important features of the program will not function correctly.Once you have Hijackthis running from this folder, please reboot and post a new hijackthis log as a reply in this thread.

This if my first post. I am a doctor and not well versed in tech but will try my best. Apologies in advance.

I work for a telemedicine company that uses a video application software to communicate with patients.

When working normally: The software app "launch" button is triggered from their website hub (using Chrome). Then an option to "open the app" appears. Then there is a welcome loading pop up window that briefly appears and disappear and then then the video window pops up.

Now for some reason, all of that process happens except the video window will not pop up. The only thing that seems to be a problem is the network ( hospital network) I am on. It had worked fine for months on this network including the whole day when it suddenly stopped working. At my house it works fine on my network It seems odd that that it would be a restriction because most of the software launch process still happens. The only piece that doesn't happen is the final loading of the video window.


I have tried most troubleshoot I could think of such as deleting browser data, deleting the software and reinstalling, firewalls, etc. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

the idea is a program that constantly records, and has a button that saves a video of the last minute or so. that way, i can just play around with the software, and when a bug occurs, then i can review what i did. (i often encounter a crash, and forget exactly what i did.)

does any thing like this exist?? if so, can i get a link?
 

A:software tester recording software idea. does it already exist?

screen recorder does it. It records what happened on your computer screen so you can check it out what you did before bugs occured.

Hmm was thinking of going back to Zone Alarm as I used it for years and loved it, HOWEVER after reading the post on "Recomendation against Zone Alarm Firewall http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic159724.html" I am up in the air of which one to use.
Any advice on firewalls would much appreciated.

Anti-Virus software

What antivirus software is recommended?
I have used AVG for years then went to avast couple years ago (I actually use full versions not the free ones lol) I am wondering should I stick with avast or go to a new one as I got 15 days left on my license.

I searched the internet and according to "Top10Reviews http://anti-virus-software-review.toptenreviews.com/v2/" BitDefender Antivirus Pro 2011 is the best anti-virus software.

OR would it be good to go with something like Norten Security (I am not a real Norton fan but I want what is best for my computer.

Again any advice would much appreciated.

I had Norton pre-installed on my computer when I got it and I honestly dont like it. .. it seemed to cause more problems than it solved for me.

I use Avast! Antivirus and reccomend it to friends/family. It has a free eddition you can download and trial if you're unsure. You can get a free yearly subscription which is easy to renew when needed. I have never had a problem with Avast and think it might be a good starting point.

Win7 x64


Which is the best free-for-home-users anti-virus software?


What other free-for-home-users security software do you recommend using in conjunction with Windows 7 x64 these days?


If I'm not mistaken, this version of Windows has a built in Firewall. Does that make Zone Alarm redundant or problematic?

Hello. I am currently developing a Blackjack simulation written in Delphi. There are existing simulations. But they are very expensive (around $200) and they cannot be modified to improve them or share the work required to make any upgrades to them.

When it's ready for distribution, I would like to find a relatively simple way that I can secure it. By that I mean I want to prevent people from being able to make copies and send them to other people without my permission. I want to prevent people from being able to make as many copies as they like and sending them to anyone and everyone who wants to use it.

I want to restrict its usage to people who have made suggestions in a specific forum on another message board or offered ideas on how the best way to design this app.

Can anyone suggest a method by which I can arrange to send the app to certain people but to maintain some degree of control over who can make copies of it and/or who can use it?
I don't want it to be easy to make copies and have them distributed to everyone without any idea of who they are.

Perhaps, if someone requests that I send them a copy of the app, I could also send them a security code so that they could install it on their machine(s) once. But after that, it could not be installed again unless the request another security code and I send them a 2nd security code.

Does it sound like it may be possible to implement such a thing? If not, do you know of any similar method I could use?

Hi,
I want to get an uninstaller program which can delete all the traces of another software from registry, history etc...so that when I install the program say fro 30 days trial version, when I uninstall the trial version software thru that software "X" and install it again, then I should get another 30 days trial period...I wouldn't mind even if the history of files accessed by that uninstalled program get lost during this cleaning up. What catches my imagination is that third party software should invoke the installer program of the program to be installed and will monitor all the changes done by the installed software...and when we try to uninstall that will revert back by doing all the changes made by the installed software...
Please suggest some good softwares for doing this job...Free-wares will be the best!
Thanks in advance,

Hello,

New to this forum and need your help.

I install Win 7 off an SCCM server that is controlled by our corporate office in another country. They do not want to tweak the SCCM to improve my workload or give us more control to modify/script the SCCM to meet our needs. I have the daunting task of configuring Win 7 everyday with the same tweaks and/or installation of software after the SCCM has completed.

Looking to streamline this process as much as possible and have not been able to find anything even close to what I need or if it's even available.

Need the software to open programs and make tweaks/setting changes within the programs. Change settings in IE and explorer , install programs from our server, then install. Some software needs a reboot, then tweaked out.

I know I'm asking for alot, but if I can find anything that might help me in anyway to speed up the configuration process for our users it would be greatly appreciated.

A:Looking for software that can tweak/install software after Win 7 loads

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

AutoIt can do what you want.

You can either automate the GUI (i.e. click/type where a human would) or just automate changes to the registry and files or use a combination of those two methods.

If you don't like the syntax of AutoIt, you can look at a fork named AutoHotKey. I've used both and I like AutoIt... but I cannot recommend AutoIt's somewhat rude support forum - YMMV.

Am looking for a real good program that will catch any program trying to phone home. Are there any? Anything built into win7 that will do this? Tnks

A:Software that catches phone home software

Zone Alarm and several other firewalls will do it.

The windows built in firewall will block all outgoing except for programs you specifically select if you set it up that way. So that'll stop all unknowns from calling out. But it's not as easy or verbose about telling you when a specific program that you have not white-listed is trying to call out. Zone alarm is a lot more chatty about what programs are doing on your machine...

My AMD Catalyst Software Suite has a Software Update on my Laptop. The problem is, every time I try to install it, it says everything installed. I then head back to see what version I have, and its the same one as before. If I click on the software to install it again, it says the same thing and doesn't install the latest software.

Confused!

A:AMD Catalyst Software Suite (Software Update)

It probably detected, that there is a new version, but since it can not be installed on your system, it skips it.
Your GPU is not supported anymore, so you can just disable update checking for AMD drivers.

I think, that the latest driver supporting your GPU was 15.12 beta, not Final, but I found only:
AMD Catalyst Graphics Driver Beta 15.11.1 Driver - TechSpot
