First use of QXL Online
First, make sure you have access to the QuickBooks Online company file with Administrator privileges, to authorize QXL Online to connect to your QuickBooks Online Company file.In case you are using QuickBooks Online Accountant (a ProAdvisor) that you need to be logged in to “Your Books” (the option in the left menu bar for accountants) or the client’s books.To authorize QXL Online to connect to your QuickBooks Online Company file, just click the Red/Green toggle button.

QXL Online connection wizard should appear. Enter a Connection name to identify which account this represents and then click Connect to QuickBooks

Switch back to QXL Online and click the Export start button:

QXL will then export the data in your current company file to an Excel file in the output folder.

Once the export completes, the folder of Excel documents with data from QuickBooks will be shown – that’s it! You are ready to embed your QuickBooks data in any spreadsheet you need.


It’s a good idea to use these spreadsheets as source data from this destination folder directly so that next time you need an update it will copy over the source data files in the same place. The best way to make use of this data is in an embedded query – use the Excel documents as source material for your own personal spreadsheets – do not modify these documents directly – otherwise, your changes will be lost on the next update/sync.

Creating a Spreadsheet from QXL Data Source Sample:
You can find QXL sample reports installed in “QXL Sample Reports” folder under “This PC” –> “Documents” –> ”QXL” folder.

There are two sample reports installed with QXL:1. QXL-Online-Sample-Report-Customer which contains customers outstanding balance details.2. QXL-Online-Sample-Report-Invoice-Aging which contains Unpaid Invoice aging details.When you run them they will query data from the QuickBooks data you have just exported automatically by using a small “macro” program in the spreadsheet. If the message comes up to “activate macros”, please activate the macros in this spreadsheet so it can then find and create a report based on your company data instantly!

Let’s see the details on these samples.


The QXL-Online-Sample-Report-Customer report will show Customer contact details & balance details for the Customer whose balance is more than $1.

QXL-Online-Sample-Report-Invoice-Aging report will show Customer details, Invoice details & Invoice aging period details which are pending for more than 30 days.

How to use the report:

After running QXL Online, you can open these reports to show data from the recently exported data in your QuickBooks system to show how easy it is to report on Excel data exported by QXL Online.

You can make use of the two sample reports, and change the data source or report to suit your requirement.

To change report data source, Click on the “Change Data Source” button.

Choose QXL Export folder which you want to use & click on Apply & Close button.

Data in the sample spreadsheet will be refreshed using provided QXL Export folder data. Refer to: How to Change QXL Sample Report Data Source for more details.
