WIP Reports (What the tool will do)

The WIP Reports for QuickBooks® Accounting Software, developed by Big Red Consulting, was designed to create one comprehensive report for unbilled time, costs and items for ease of review prior to invoicing.  QuickBooks will permit unbilled time reports or unbilled costs and item reports, but not combined.  In addition, the time reports are only by hours, not by dollars.  The WIP Reports add in for Excel solves all these problems while adding the flexibility for mark ups and mark downs.


The tool works with Excel 97, 2000, and XP for Windows.  It is accessed from within Excel using menus it creates.  It does not change Excel in any way, it only adds to the functionality.


One of the major advantages of the tool is that is not version specific (although QuickBooks 99 or higher is recommended).  The reports are created in QuickBooks then manipulated in Excel using the tool.
