Hi Cocophone and Welcome to the Forum
As this is very specific to the coding of the Quickbooks program i think you may be better served by trying the Quickbooks Forum. There is one for the US here: QuickBooks Forums - Powered by vBulletin
Please don't think that you are being fobbed off but I really think that if what you want can be done this will be the best place to find out how.
Please come back anytime with your Windows 7 queries and let us know how you get on with this one.
I have to say though that I think the facility that you have with Quickbooks is a very a useful one if you haven't PDF facilities already installed.
