QuickBooks Enterprise Business Planner Unable to Print

Posted by gygon on Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Recently had someone try using the Business Planner tool in QuickBooks (Enterprise v11) and after entering all of the info, ran into an issue with the preview button being greyed out and unable to view the report. After following the instructions on the Intuit knowledge base article, the preview button was now visable but when clicking it, a Printer Not Activated error -30 would appear.

Several phone calls with Intuit support later, and numerous printer re-installs, they determined this is a bug. Version 12 was recently released but we haven’t upgraded yet…so I installed it on a test system and tried again, same issue.

So if you’re having issues trying to view the business planner…save you time and skip it for now.
