I am having the same issue since about the 3rd week of December, 2009.  I tried backing up the data and completely reinstalling it on a new computer with XP pro.  I did a restore with the data taken over and it still gives me the same integer overflow error, so it is something in the data.  Please assist.

This is what i did to solve the integer overflow problem..If you are OK with it, try it. Its very helpful. follow the steps bellow'

1. Firstly, make a backup of your data.

2. Extract your data to excel sheet.

3. copy extracted data to Quickbooks Import Template and edit it accordingly.( make sure all       the data is in their right columns and rows)

4. Uninstall quickbooks completely by removing even its registry forders then make a clean         and new installation of quickbooks if you still have a copy.

5. Import the extracted and well edited template back in to quickbooks.

You are good to go.

NB: The only disadvantage is you will not be able to view your history records but for that you can refer to the backup copy.


Hope you will find this helpfull.
