Hi all,

Can anyone explain this to me.

I did a conversion from quickbooks 99 to Peachtree Premium Accounting 2004 successfully. But I found some accounts having '????????????' in their balance. In QB, these account balances were conveniently held. I exported the report to excel and expanded the field to no avail.

1. Is Peachtree limited in the number its field can hold and what is the maximum number? I 'd thought that PT does better in all aspects than QB.

2. What are the major differences between PT and QB?

Your answers will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Tony Akunyulam

I think the limit is 999,999,999.99

What was the balance in the account in QB?

Thanks RetroCanino for your response.

The exact figure I cant remember now, but it is in the range '9,999,999,999.99' which is greater than what you say is the limit for PT(999,999,999.99).

I hope your answer is definitive; and if it is, dont you think it is a serious issue and limitation for PT.

These large figures appeared in the Sales and Cost of goods sold accounts. I am surprised to see that when I take out Income statement from these (converted) balances in PT it gave same Net income as in QB.

Peachtree's target market is not billion dollar companies, so no, I don't think it's a serious issue or limitation.
