Currently Being ModeratedAug 28, 2009 11:15 PM (in response to emsko)Unfortunately, I can't answer your QuickBooks question, but old versions of Quicken (2005 and 2006) are working, as noted in another thread:

Currently Being ModeratedAug 31, 2009 5:21 PM (in response to emsko)my copy of quickbooks 2007 does NOT work. IN-fact my data has either been severely corrupted, or the application is having issues. My transactions are all corrupted...(for example, I had a Debit for $499 show up as $4million dollars after updating.
I sure hope I don't have to upgrade to Quickbooks 2009 to get my program working!15" MacBook Pro, iPhone 3GS, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 31, 2009 8:57 PM (in response to emsko)DOES NOT WORK!!! DONT DO IT!
Register dates and amounts are all corrupted though if you click on individual transaction it will show you the correct numbers. Sadly you can't even manually restore the corrupted info.
THIS OS FEELS A WHOLE LOT LIKE WINDOZE! I never used to worry updating a mac because they always just WORK....this is crashing everything. What a waste.imac, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 31, 2009 8:58 PM (in response to emsko)does not work!
corrupted data in register
if you click on individual transaction you can see correct info but you cannot alter the crazy numbers that are there.
interestingly the totals are correct
but I am pretty sure I didn't make an 8 million dollar deposit (though I wish I had)imac, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 1, 2009 4:57 AM (in response to kimgoldman)Thank you so much for the warnings. How incredibly frustrating and aggravating!! I'm so sorry. The same sad story is emerging in the Intuit forums. http://community.intuit.com/post/detail/dWQ6yILbWr3PKzacfA8pyY
QB 2009 is faring no better in SL than 2007. If you follow some of the links in the more official posts you get the sense that Intuit caught completely oblivious to SL until Friday but is working on a fix for 2009. They are giving no sense of when it will be ready. They are being vague and noncommittal regarding whether or not they are going to fix 2007 at all. Ugh!Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 1, 2009 12:30 PM (in response to emsko)Thanks for the info on Quickbooks Pro 2007. I'm going to have to wait on SL now until this gets worked out. Intuit seems to be having a difficult time keeping Mac users in current products.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8), also PowerMac G4, iMac G3s & G4, iBook
Currently Being ModeratedSep 1, 2009 3:50 PM (in response to emsko)Does the same thing for me. My files are completely corrupted. What are you guys going to do? Go back to Leopard or wait on a fix? Just curious what everyone's game plan was going to be.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 1, 2009 4:30 PM (in response to RyanHS1)Game plan right now is to keep leopard running on one machine...move the current QB files over there. Fortunately, I moved them and they opened fine on leopard...MacBook (10.5.8), Mac Pro (10.6), iMac (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 1, 2009 4:53 PM (in response to emsko)QuickBooks 2007 does not work in Snow Leopard.
The Bank Account Register appears to be corrupt with bad dates and bad amounts. However, the data is not corrupt. If you click on the register entry, the data suddenly changes to the correct information. And all reports relating to the Bank Account Register are correct. But how do you work in a register that appears to be totally corrupt.
I've used QuickBooks for many years but I have had enough. It obvious Intuit doesn't really want to support us Mac users. Maybe it's time us Mac users stop supporting Intuit.MacBook Pro 2.2GHz, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2009 3:51 AM (in response to PopsO)I have not yet upgraded to Snow Leopard. If I had, not only would I not be able to use QBP 2007 but MacSpeech, Thunderbird, Missing Sync for Blackberry, and my 4 month old Canon laser multifunction. I am awaiting SL compatible updates on all of this software before I switch. Canon may not have drivers for my machine until October. No one has given any hard and fast dates for updates. This software is critical to my business - Snow Leopard is not. I am plenty frustrated - at Apple and at the developers of my applications, but I am willing to live with that frustration and not jeopardize my ability to earn a living. SL would be fun but I am actually quite happy with my Mac as is, and look forward to playing with SL in a month or 2, hopefully. With regard to alternatives to QB, sadly, I have not found one. I would love to take my business elsewhere and have been trying software and searching forums for alternatives, but have not found anything that will work as well for me. If anyone else has found something else they like I would love to know about it and would switch in a second if I could. I read that Microsoft is phasing out MS Money, so even on the Windows side Intuit is the dominant application. Ugh! Well, that's how am handling all of this. Not entirely happy about it but still feeling very fortunate to have Leopard 1.5 and my Mac. It seems like the best course for now. Also feel very fortunate to have these forums and am so appreciative of everyone's comments and concerns. It's wonderful that we can come together and support each other. I also found some consolation in this article. http://www.maclife.com/article/feature/10reasons_not_upgrade_snow_leopard_rightawayMac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2009 5:23 PM (in response to emsko)I spent (wasted) more time troubleshooting the QB 2007 corrupted Bank Register record problem. Some good news actually.
Configuration info: MacBooks Pro 2.2GHz, 2GB RAM running Snow Leopard.
QuickBooks for Mac 2007 with company configured for accrual accounting.
Problem: Checking Account and Money Market Account register records appear to contain corrupt dates and values. But when the record is selected, the date and value appear correct.
Using two different company files I ran File>Utilities>Verify that failed with instructions to run File>Utilities>Rebuild Data. The Rebuild corrected the corruption in the 1st company file. I had to manually correct the data in the 2nd company file. (Note: these files also failed the Verify on another Mac running Leopard.)
Once the Verify passed, the Bank Account Register data appeared correct.
I created many of the common financial reports and all appeared correct.
I even converted a company file from a QB 2007 for Windows user that was created using the Mac Backup command. This converted file exhibited the same corrupted register data symptom. The file also failed the Verify. After a Rebuild, the file passed the Verify. Once it passed the Verify, the register data no longer appeared corrupted.
That's as far as I've gotten so far. Next I'll try to pay some bills and see if the new Checking Account records show any corruption.MacBook Pro 2.2GHz, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 7, 2009 4:07 PM (in response to PopsO)PopsO, thank you and please, please keep us informed. I want to upgrade to SL but need to know if QuickBooks Pro 2007 works after rebuilding the data.
