Finding the license key and product number for QuickBooks is essential to reinstalling the software and keeping continuity of records and operations when you upgrade to a new computer. You have several places that you can look for the two numbers, depending on how you purchased the software and whether you registered it with Intuit. Intuit customer support can help you in the event you can’t find the numbers, as long as you have proof of purchase.
Every business has some sort of unique information that is important to its operation. While QuickBooks provides the places to store the basic information that every business needs, you will usually find that you need to store additional data such as a customer’s vehicle registration number, or the weight of an inventory item. QuickBooks provides us with custom fields, a way that you can define your own places to store information. Today we’ll talk a bit about custom fields and how to use them in estimates, sales orders and invoices.
While watching postings in the QuickBooksGroup user forums I see that many people don’t understand how custom fields work in QuickBooks. Part of the problem is that QuickBooks handles them in a quirky way that isn’t always obvious. I’ve worked extensively with custom fields while developing my CCRQInvoice invoice utility for QuickBooks, and I’ll run through a simple example here with an invoice. Note that these steps are essentially the same for invoices, sales orders, estimates and sales receipts (and very similar to what you can do with purchase orders).
Look on the QuickBooks packaging for a sticker with the license and product numbers. If you purchased QuickBooks online, you can find the license and product numbers in the confirmation email received after purchasing the software.
Insert the installation disc into a computer that has QuickBooks installed. Select “Reinstall QuickBooks.” Write down the numbers in the “License and Product Number” window.
Navigate to the Intuit QuickBooks License Lookup Web page (link in Resources), and then enter your Intuit username and password. If the website is unable to find your information, or if you haven’t registered your software with Intuit, contact Intuit at. You’ll need to provide proof of purchase to receive a license and product number.
Sometimes you just need this information when you’re speaking on the phone with customer support. They want you to identify yourself and direct you to the right support person for your issue.
Open your QuickBooks data file. Press the F2 key on your keyboard. This will open up a hidden window. This window is a wealth of information. You will find the product and the license number here.
