This article describes a method for tracking list entry history, to answer the following questions:
In QuickBooks, the only way to determine the length of time an entry on the Customer or Vendor list has been associated with the company file is to examine each entry one at a time, using the snapshot in the Customer or Vendor Center.

For a report showing when customers, vendors, or items were added to the company file, export an iif file and perform this conversion.
CAUTION: Before performing any of the following tasks, create a backup of your data file(s) with a unique name or saved to an isolated location.
