It Worked!

"I just wanted to provide you with the link to the blog post I did today for our company's blog: in which I talked about the Quickbooks 14500 club. I have happily decreased my customer master file by half - thanks to you and your wonderful program. Thanks again for your help."

Thanks Mark. We have a lot of repeat customers whose information we probably lost but we were able to cut our customer list down by thousands. I'm glad I found your program!

ANSWER: No Information was lost in this process - Check the "Retail" account and you'll see that everything's there. Besides, you've got your backup.

My name is Mark C. Robinson.

I own and operate two businesses; The Energy Grid creates websites and does search engine optimization. is an online retailer of dog wheelchairs and supplies for elderly, disabled, and special needs pets.

When hit the 14,500 limit I was pretty freaked out. I couldn't afford the $3000 ransom that Quickbooks wanted and my business was dead in water. I found the manual "Merge" function and started coming in early every morning to merge 100 or so customers so I could take orders. UGH!

Then I remembered the "Keyboard Macro" from my old TRS-80 days and found a newer version of the technology. After some programming work, I was merging unattended. A keyboard Macro fools the computer into thinking that someone is typing.

Now, the program has been adapted to handle several different errors and machine types. I've also added programs to merge Vendors and Items. Need help? Call. I'll help if I can.

Best of Luck!

Your program worked PERFECTLY! Thank you so much for having the smarts and making the effort to build this program. We upgraded all our software and computers, only to have the POS integration fail because of our 10,000 customers + vendors and items exceeding the 14,500 limit. All Quickbooks said was too bad, upgrade to Enterprise, which was totally unnecessary for us...a small chocolate/candy store that uses Quickbooks Point of Sale and never should have been transferring customers to Quickbooks in the first place...totally not needed. Thanks again. Probably the best $75 this store has ever spent!

You are a GENIUS!! Thank you for coming up with that script. I have successfully merged all my customers so I can now import new orders into QB. This has been a tremendous help.

[Thanks, but if I'm so smart how come I'm using Quickbooks?]

  Hi Mark,
I just finished using your program to reduce the size of my Quickbooks customer list and would like to say that it works exactly as you advertise. I would recommend it to anyone that runs into the 14500 Quickbooks customer limit. I was not about to spend $3,000 to upgrade to Enterprise just because I am unable to remove old customers. I own a rapidly growing company ( and can find other more important places to spend $3,000. Thank you for a great solution to a problem that many Quickbooks users will eventually face.
