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.

If you would like me to do all the setup and debugging and get the program ready to run, I can log onto your computer remotely and do all the necessary work. The cost is $225.00 (not including the cost of the program itself). You will pre-pay this fee through paypal to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Here are the details:
1 - You agree to make a backup of your datafile. Should any problems arise, you will restore from backup and hold us harmless.
2 - The cost of the program is refundable if it does not work, but 50% of this consulting fee is not. If we run into a problem that we cannot solve, we will let you know and offer to refund 50% of your consulting fee and the cost of the program.
3 - Provide us remote access to your computer through logmein,, or teamviewer (preferred).
4 - If you do not have Excel on your computer, you agree that we can download your data onto our computer to process it.

Here's what we will do:
A - Restore a backup of your data to a Company OLD company file that you can access in the future if necessary.
B - Cause all customers who have not purchased from you in two years to become inactive.
C - Test the program to make sure it is properly setup and configured.
D - Show you how to start the program.

You will need to follow our instructions each time you want to start the program, often at night before you go home, and run it to merge between 250 and 1000 customers, depending on your computer's speed and how Quickbooks responds.

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.
