Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!


QuickBooks Enterprise 2015 has a capability to host the company data file on a non-windows system, such as Citrix or Linux. The most common Linux used is Fedora, and there are instructions available for setting up a Linux server to host the file on Intuit’s website.

But there can be configuration issues when setting this up and trying to run it.

One issue that you may encounter is an H202 error.

Intuit has released the following information concerning the error:

The following error occurs when opening a company file hosted on a Fedora Linux or Citrix server:

Problem with multi-user hosting setup. QuickBooks could not open the file in multi-user mode. (H202)

Why this is happening

This error occurs for one of the following reasons:

When the host name of the Fedora Linux server hosting the company file is set to its fully qualified domain name. For example, [ComputerName].[DomainName].com.

Solution: Run QuickBooks using server-side application virtualization

WIP Summary report not fixed in QuickBooks Enterprise 15.

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!


Intuit included a new report in QuickBooks Enterprise 14, the Work In Progress Summary.

Right off the bat, we noticed a couple of issues.

If the Actual costs exceeded the Estimated costs, the program simply reported 100%.


And the report could only be run on an Accrual Basis ( which makes sense, as it is looking at unbilled time and payroll info). But the option to run it on a cash basis is not there.


While they have added new features and preferences to the QuickBooks Enterprise 15, my hope was that they would try to correct some of the existing issues. We will watch to see if there is any change to this in the future.

Printed transactions appear to not match on screen order in QuickBooks Enterprise 15

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

Why this is happening

You may observe this behavior once a transaction containing items is sorted by the item column. This occurs because the sort applies only to the onscreen information. The sort is done by names as they appear on screen. QuickBooks does not print the parent name of a sub item. See the example where the first Item is Father and the second Item is Father:A Kid. The printed version will drop the “Father:” from the Item name.



  1. From the top menu click Lists, and select Item List.
  2. Set up a custom field for an item:
    1. Double-click any item to open the Edit Item window.
    2. Click Custom Fields button and then click Define Fields to open the Set up Custom Fields for Items window.
    3. Enter the name that you want to use (for example ItemSort) in the Label field and press OK.
  3. Add the item custom field as a column to a Template:
    1. From the Lists menu, select Templates.
    2. Double-click the desired template to open the Basic Customization window.
    3. Click the Additional Customization button at the bottom of the window.
    4. Select the Columns tab
    5. Locate the row for the Custom Field you created in Step 2.
    6. Check the box on the screen column to display the field in the transaction window. If you would like the Custom Field to be included on the printed form, also check the print box.
    7. Click OK.
  4. Manually set the order desired on the transaction by using the custom field column to assign a number to each row and resorting by that column.
