Our developers worked with ComputerEase to determine what was needed to import the information into their software.

Applies to: Quick Bid v. 4.99.03.xx and newer

Caution

Although the Bid, Labor, and Material Exports are available to any licensed user, the Accounting and Custom Exports are only available to users under a maintenance subscription.

If you've allowed your maintenance subscription to expire, you can renew easily by clicking File > Check Authorization and clicking the Renew link.

QB License Activation dialog box - renew link

That link opens the MyOnCenter customer portal where you (or whoever can pay the invoice) may renew your maintenance subscription.

You can also contact Customer Success to discuss renewing your maintenance subscription.

Note

On Center Software does not provide assistance with importing the Budget File into your Accounting package.  Accounting packages are very complex and the vendor of your particular Accounting package is best equipped to support it.

To export the budget to ComputerEase Accounting software,

Click the Exports button on the Bid toolbar

Select Job Budget File

Click the Options Button next to the export you want to generate - the Modify Options for Job Budget File dialog box opens

From the Export Format drop down, select ComputerEase (exports to an CSV file)

Select the options an filename/location where the export file is to be saved.

Click the OK button to return to the Bid Exports screen.

Click the Export button (your file is not generated until you click the Export button).

The Job Budget File export allows you to create a Budget in your ComputerEase Accounting Software, based on the final Bid information from Quick Bid. For assistance importing a budget file into ComputerEase Accounting Software, please consult your ComputerEase User Guide or ComputerEase's support.
