Quick Books plug-In Error after update

Recommended Posts

FM Books Connector v9.0.1.0 was working fine with FileMaker Pro Advanced ver 13.0.4, after upgrade to FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.6 on one computer, plug-in stopped working on upgraded computer. Get Code - 1000, Error 80040418.

Other users with FileMaker Pro ver 13.0.4 are still working fine.

Hi jfk_25,


That error indicates that QuickBooks has not been accessed by the third-party application (in this case, FileMaker 14) before. This is expected behavior when connecting to QuickBooks after upgrading FileMaker to a new major version.  All you need to do is open QuickBooks and your company file, then begin a session and configure the QuickBooks configuration certificate as per the Developer's Guide, just like you were doing a first-time startup. You will then be able to use QuickBooks in unattended mode once more.

The reason behind this is that the QuickBooks treats the combination of the FM Books Connector plug-in and the version of FileMaker as the key to determine when a different application has tried to access QuickBooks. If you were to set up a connection with FileMaker 14, and then upgrade to FileMaker 17, QuickBooks would treat FileMaker 17 as a "new application", and so the first-time setup would need to be repeated. It's a bit of extra work, admittedly, but it's necessary, and once it's been re-configured, anyone with access to your company file can connect from that new version of FileMaker.


Hope this helps!

      Hi everyone, i'm a newest user with MirrorSync.

      "Error from server: java.sql.SQLException: FileMaker numeric primary keys must not begin with a 0. Either remove the zero padding, or switch the primary key field and all related foreign keys to text. First error: 01234567-DACC-8DE7-58DD-2ASSDE474DCA from table TableName" 

      The field its auto-generate UUID of type text.

      I have been running a document creation and management solution for 2 years.
      My scribe maintenance subscription ran out so I bought a new license.
      Boom the whole things has collapsed.
      Scribe is throwing errors when a field in the database does not appear as a merge field in the document the attached being a typical error.
      This solution is vital to my practice but 360Work have no taken 2 working days with no solution - not responding to my emails when I tell them that their work arounds aren't working.
      This was suggested "ScribeSetErrorCapture(true)" - but that does not even appear in my steps in the script window.
      Utterly frustrated.

      When calling the function EmailSetBodyFile(url, 1) I receive the error - Java.security.cert.CertificateException No subject alternative DNS name matching conta.cc found. I was using the function to send a url that points to a constant contact page. I have done this many times in the past and can still successfully perform this function on other constant contact pages but not this particular one for some reason. https://conta.cc/2ug3M0P
      Any help??

      we use your plugin Scribe for editing Excel files in our Filemaker solution.
      Since a few days we get an error message when calling the method "ScribeDocLoad" (see appendix) for newer Excel files.
      Older Excel files from the beginning of 2018 are not affected.
      So we wanted to ask if there might be a problem with the error in Scribe.
      We are currently using:
      Filemaker Pro Advance version
      Microsoft Excel 2016 Ver. 16.0.9029.2253 64-bit
      Scribe version 3.08
      In the appendix you will find an Excel file that throws an error message when opening with Scribe.
      With kind regards

      We seem to have some corruption in administration of licenses - see attached.
      Is there a way to manually remove the Device Sync Data to free up licenses. 
      We plan a reinstall/upgrade over the Xmas break so a quick fix here would suffice.
