Thanks for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

What happens when you attempt to print to PDF within Quickbooks?

Do you get a specific error?

Thank you

Quickbooks just say: Unable to create PDF file no error number

ok, it will be an incompatibility with the windows 8.1 update.

We can do a work around on this.

Install the free program cutepdf from by link below

Install it and a printer will be installed. This printer, converts to PDF files for you.

Print to this printer to make the PDF file.

Let me know the results please

Thank you

I can now create a PDF but it will not let me send an invoice direct from quickbooks. I would need to go thru many extra steps for each invoice. Create the pdf, open email and create the email and attach the pdf.

Will an updated version of quickbooks work directly with windows 8.1?

Not yet as it is too early Maureen.

You will need to wait (based on my past experiences) about a month for the update to come out from Quickbooks.

This is always the case with Windows updates.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
