You might also mention that Quickbooks can't do FIFO costing.  It only does 
average cost.  And the database is *quite* fragile. It has a long history 
of inventory disasters.  But here are some workarounds for Sales Order.

Dang those SMEs anyway.  We just KNOW they're buying the wrong 
products.  Why don't they just buy midrange software?

Watch the Quickbooks users download free EBXML adapters.  Watch them 
receive POs from the internet, think about them, and then and stuff them 
into their Quickbooks as an invoice.


p.s. I do not regard the Quickbooks integration topic as a "rathole"!
