  • Blog Post: Creating Add-ins from Visual Studio for Office Accounting 2007

    Wow, the number of bloggers on the team is growing exponentially!!! I was alone for quite some time and then Isaias started. This week I already linked to Jesper's blog and today I just found out that Jorn also started his blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/jorn . Hey guys, you should let me know about...
  • Blog Post: A week after releasing Office Accounting 2007

    So what is going on right now? Well, last Monday Oct 30 th we shipped Office Accounting 2007 and made express available as a free download. Tuesday I got to see the videos of our launch in Willow Springs , IL . Wednesday we started to think about our next release. We got Monday off and Tuesday we had...
  • Blog Post: Are you thinking about selling on eBay using Office Accounting 2007?

    Isaias blogs about how to sell on eBay from Office Accounting 2007 Isaias is probably one of the experts on this, as he owned this feature from early own and worked very hard on seeing this through. It really is a great feature to have linked to your accounting system. I worked on bits and pieces...
  • Blog Post: Office Accounting Express 2007

    Microsoft tries to lure ‘mom and pop’ companies . Interesting title which I don’t really agree that we want to ‘lure’ but well, it got my attention so I decided to blog about it. First of all, I’m glad that we shipped v 2.0 or our product on time! Second, we just announced about Office Accounting Express...
  • Blog Post: UI Add-in close events don’t fire when SBA is closed

    When a UI Add-in form is open and SBA 2006/Office Accounting 2007 is closed, the UI Add-in form closes without firing the Closed or Closing events. This prevents the developer from asking if the user would like to save their changes before the form closes. SBA forms, if the SBA shell is closed, ask the...
  • Blog Post: Moving SBA SDK 1.0 Add-ins to SBA SDK 2.0 (Office Accounting 2007)

    The next version of SBA SDK is coming (under a different product name) and it's time to start looking at some of the changes in the Add-ins area. Referencing SBAAPI.dll First of all, we found out that our 1.0 SDK sample for UIAddIn, we were referencing SBAAPI (when we are always telling you not...
  • Blog Post: SBA Business Logic Add-in Sample in VB.NET (ISdkAddInDriver)

    A couple months ago I posted a step by step process for doing a Business Logic Add-in Sample in C#, so finally here is the second part for doing this in VB.NET. The instructions are pretty much copied from the original post but I have translated the code to VB and verified it. Let's start. 1. Open...
  • Blog Post: How to programmatically verify if an Add-in is installed

    I wanted to post a quick sample that I think might be useful. The escenario that I ran into is when you have two Add-ins that complement each other, a UI Add-in and a Business Logic Add-in . Since the user can enable only one of them and disable the other, you might want to check for this and then ask...
  • Blog Post: MS Accounting Tool Gets a New Name, New Beta

    Yes, last week we announced the public beta of Office Accounting 2007, which is pretty cool because we've been working very hard on this version (since before the previous version was on the shelves). The biggest news is the product name change (does that mean I should change the name of my blog?) and...
  • Blog Post: SBA SDK : Finding the Kits that contain my Item in VB.NET

    I must confess I'm a little rusty in my VB because I don't use it often enough. But I wanted to post this sample in Visual Basic .NET. I used the Code Translator from CarlosAg and it worked perfectly, except that it couldn't translate the implicit convertion of an int to a string when this is used in...
  • Blog Post: SBA SDK : Finding the Kits that contain my Item

    This is a quick sample I put together after a post in our newsgroups. I don't think we have this functionality but I could see that some users (especially those with thousands of items in their inventory) could use this. So this sample is to show how the classes in our SDK will allow you to have this...
  • Blog Post: A good introduction to the Office Small Business Accounting SDK

    I recently found out that we have this really good PowerPoint covering some of the main aspects to understand and use our SDK. It was put together by Robert Blanch, the Dev Manager for SBA v.1.0 and it is really something that I would recommend to anyone that wants to get started on this. That presentation...
