I have a client that has Quickbooks Pro 2006 and according to their CPA they are not to upgrade.
Anyway the data is on a shared drive on their peer-to-peer "server" (really a Windows XP Pro PC).
Anyway, when on the "server" I just try to do a verify of the database, it comes back (after it flashes the verify box (it doesn't even scroll the percentage)) and gives an error that states "The connection to the company file has been lost. Quickbooks must close immediately. Any unsaved data will need to be re-entered."
This makes no sense since everything I have seen on the Intuit website states that you must fix the network connection. The data is on the C drive of the same machine, so this makes no sense.
I have run the Quickbooks diagnostics utility and it states the same error.
I know that many forums say to send the data to Intuit to have them fix it, but they want us to upgrade to the latest edition and that is a no go for now.
What else can I do to fix this?
