QuickBooks is written to prevent the export of data into other programs in a what that would allow them to supplant the "add-on" features that Inuit wishes to sell.
For example, Transaction data can not be exported at all. A Transaction Detail report allows most transaction data to be saved in a comma delimited ASCII text data file but when selecting fields for that report, you will find that customer address and other critical information is just not available.
Also, custom fields like email addresses will not be available unless they are added to the form that is the default for that transaction type.

Intuit has also prevented integration of programs that seek to add information to your existing accounting data by setting up the import in such a way that if an item already exists, rather than modifying only the fields specified in the import file, the entire item is first deleted, then the import data is added in its place.
