You guys know all about PAWCOM from Multiware, Inc. - right?
If you're using Peachtree (or have clients using Peachtree) and you want / need to extend it's functionality, PAWCOM is the only way to go. So what is it? PAWCOM is a COM interface that let's you connect to your Peachtree data from any COM-enabled development environment. I've used this for one large on-going project with a client who had industry-specific invoicing / tracking needs, but they weren't impressed with any of the low-end industry-specific solutions available. We used Access 2002 to build them a custom invoicing / tracking application that uses PAWCOM to connect to their Peachtree data. The Access solution looks up customers, inventory items, etc. from Peachtree - so there is only one set of master lists that has to be maintained. Furthermore, all transactions are written seemlessly into the Peachtree sales journal. Cool, huh?
And if you're looking for any other reasons to use Peachtree, how about the fact that it runs just great in user mode without any registry hacks (unlike another popular product that shall remain nameless) . . . :^)
