How to Buy
Free Trial: You can download the the Report Combiner trial program, at no cost, by clicking on the link listed below. The trial program is fully functional except that the data is doubled (standard type) or limited to a maximum of 12/13/12 (by Class type) . To run the program you need to have either Microsoft Access 2000 to 2013 (32 bit) or the free Access Runtime Engine which is available further down on this page at no cost.
There are two types of the program. The standard type (blue in the table below) sets up each company as a Class in the consolidating QuickBooks file. Individual classes in each file being consolidated are not transferred to the consolidating file. If you are consolidating 10 QuickBooks files, the consolidating file will have 10 classes in it.
The "By Class" type (yellow in the table below) program carries each companies classes into the consolidating file and sets the classes up as subclasses of the company class. If you are consolidating 10 QuickBooks files and each file has 5 classes in it, the consolidating file will have 60 classes in it.
You get both types for one purchase. There is no additional cost to use both of the programs. If you use the By Class type of the program, every company being consolidated must have a least one class whether used or not. In most cases you should use the regular type of the program and not the by class type of the program.
Canadian and UK users: If you receive the following error message, "Class does not support Automation. ...", you need to update the QBXMLRP2.dll file installed by QuickBooks. Click at right to download and install this file. QBXMLRP2Installer.exe
UK users: Balance Sheets produced by the Combiner are in the US format. If you transfer the data to the optional consolidating file, you can produce a single column "combined" balance sheet in the UK format (the Balance Sheet by class report will be in the US format).
How to Purchase:
The purchase price for the Combiner is $169.00 for new owners and $89 for owners of a prior version. Additional copies of the same version are also $89.
