The following problems cannot be resolved:

Some QuickBooks fields can accommodate approximately 4096 characters.  If LinkBook makes the full 4096 characters available, Access 97 represents these fields as Memo fields, but corrupts calls to LinkBook when a field is listed anywhere other than the last field in a table.  Unless a long field is the last field in a QuickBooks table, the internal LinkBook data dictionary limits these fields to 250 characters.

The following problems in release 10 will be fixed in release 11:

This release does not support 2004 versions of QuickBooks.
This release does not support 2005 versions of QuickBooks.

LinkBook may return invalid values for AVG and SUM functions in a query.
