Hi there,

  1. Open the QuickBooks sample company and try to print the same form or type of form. If it prints successfully, your company data, form template, or customized report may be damaged.
  2. Reopen your company file and try to print an uncustomized (standard/default) form template or non-memorized report. If the issue occurs again, refer to Verifying and rebuilding the QuickBooks company data and then attempt to print again.
  3. If you were printing a batch of forms in QuickBooks, attempt to print a single form. If successful, try printing smaller batches.
  4. If you were able to print from QuickBooks in the past from this company file:
  5. Turn off the printer, restart your computer, and then turn the printer back on.
  6. In QuickBooks, choose File > Printer Setup and check the printer settings for the specific form you're trying to print.
  7. Click Help in this area for more detailed instructions on these settings.
  8. Ensure that you have the latest printer drivers for your printer. Go to the manufacturer's website to download and install the most current drivers.
  9. Replace the QuickBooks Qbprint.qbp file:
  10. Close QuickBooks.
  11. Rename the qbprint.qbp file.
  12. Open QuickBooks and attempt to print again.
  13. If the issue persists, repair the QuickBooks installation.

I have XP and QuickBooks Pro 2007. QuickBooks PDF Converter shows up with my printers, but when I am in QuickBooks, and click on print, it is not an option. I have removed and re-installed the converter several times, re-started, etc...it still doesn't show up as an option. When I use the option in File, it tells me I can't print to that file.


You want to print things while in QuickBooks right? That's your problem? If so, then open your QuickBooks file and go to "file" at the top left of the screen. Click on File and then choose "set up printer" from the drop down list of choices. This will open up a list of forms. Choose the form that you wish to be able to print. Then lick on the arrow next to the printers name that comes up as the default chosen in QuickBooks. Change the printer name to the printer that you want to use to print the form. Then choose "ok" and close the window. Repeat the same instructions for each form that you wish to print with your printer. You dont want to use the QuickBooks PDF converter as the choice of printer. It's not a printer driver.

Quickbooks Pro 2007 Printing Blank Invoices


Go 'Lists' and then open 'Templates', double click on the product invoice and make sure the invoice is 'Active'.
Qbooks saves printer settings for each feature, regardless of which is set as 'default' in Windows...be sure you have the correct printer selected.
If the above are set correctly, go to HP's website and download the latest driver for your printer.

My printer will not print.


When you get to the "Print" window, there should be the area where it says the type of printer. There is also a drop-down arrow. Click on the arrow and highlight your HP printer.
