How to work out Quickbooks & MS Office Compatibility

4 Comments


Microsoft (MS) Office can be used direct from Quickbooks. But check compatibility.

Office 2010 products are available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The 32-bit version will be installed by default, but you can choose the 64-bit version when you install. However some add-ins, like Active X controls and COM objects used by QuickBooks, are not compatible with Office 2010 64-bit.

Go to Microsoft’s Compatibility Between the 32-bit and 64-bit Version of Office 2010 page for more information.

QuickBooks is not technically designed to work with Microsoft Office 2010 products. The support occurs for these products at the present time:

QuickBooks 2011 and QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions 11.0

    • Word 2010 is only supported on QuickBooks Pro and QuickBooks Premier non-Accountant editions (Contractor’s, Non-Profit, Mfg. and Wholesale, etc.)
