Can I create a batch file to open a QB file

I need a program that syncs with QB to have a particular QB file open for it to work.  I can automate everything but I need a QB file open in QB for it to work.  I don't want to have to sign in to the computer, open QB and then open the file ever time that system reboots.


Is there a way to automatically open a QB file without opening QB and manually opening the file?

Hi boed12,


Thanks for reaching out to us here.  QuickBooks is a powerful program that enables you to complete your tasks with peace of mind.  I can see how you'd benefit from having the ability to automatically open a QuickBooks file without opening QuickBooks.  I suggest reviewing your options with a third party app If you have additional questions or concerns about this, please don't hesitate to contact us.

What kind of operation do you need to run? Automate MS Access/SQL Server imports into QB Desktop, or else?
