Bank of America. Some QuickBooks users have reported difficulties downloading bank transactions from Bank of America. Bank of America reports it will be able to update its systems to resolve these difficulties as early as December 12.

Multiple Windows. Some QuickBooks users have asked for the ability to have multiple windows open at the same time. We are working on an update for this as well.
