Quickbooks Missing name list problem


I have an Employee that is unable to open a QuickBooks file. They get a "Missing name list problem", Quickbooks suggests to resort the list but how is that possible when we can't get into the file?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If the issue is with a user name on the computer, try making a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new account and open QuickBooks.  Does that work?

If not, uninstall QuickBooks, and the QB Redistributable, restart, install QuickBooks, update and test.

Thanks for the reply,

It's not a User issue, it's actually an issue with the file.

Copy the QB data file to a good local machine, open QuickBooks and open the local file as Admin. Then File, Utilities, Rebuild. Rebuild the file, ensure no errors, put it back and then test again.

You can solve this error by following methods:

    • Restore a backup and re-enter transactions into the current file.
    • You can try Quickbooks File doctor to fix the error.
    • You can also find a data recovery service to fix the error and repair the data back
