A client of mine has this issue when attempting to open up QB on the work station, QB Sees the file on the server but then pops up a message saying that it cannot communicate with it. I have uploaded a picture of the error.  I tried to find the connection diagnostic tool that it is talking about, but it seems to be hidden. The instructions always says to download it from the "OEM" website, where ever that is.  I couldn't seem to find it.  
But for some reason QB sees the files on the server, but cannot access them.  a little help would be appreciated.

Hi, I have a client that when they open quickbooks, it's seems to be opening a ton of stuff, takes like 30 seconds then I get a warning....

"The report you requested is too large and can not be displayed.  Please filters to limit the scope of the report."

The user must have had them startup on startup by accident, she wants to remove them so it opens normal

Question, how do we do that?

Thanks all.

I've been offered a "C2C" or 1099 contract position. The company is interesting to me for the cool stuff they do and I want to be a part of it to see how the magic's done. They say it could go full time if things pan out - although that's not critical for me if it just winds down or turns into a long term gig. I've always either worked directly for a company or as a W2 contractor where the consulting company just took care of everything. Is there a web site that can help me dot all the I's and cross all the T's in order to be a C2C or 1099 contractor? It's all going down quickly so any advice is appreciated!

QuickBooks aborts every so often, so I decided to post the QBwin.log file and hope someone knows how to read this file to get information as to why it was aborting around 5:37pm.  Unfortunately there is not a lengthy log file there and I'm not sure why quickbooks doesn't give more.  If there is a way to adjust that, please let me know.  An individual will be in the middle of work and QB client just simply aborts.  We are using QB Pro 2018.

I had to wipe clean my PC and on reinstalling all the software I find that QUICKBOOKS  2013 cannot find my default mail client (Office 365 Outlook) please can anyone suggest how I can get Outlook as the mail client in QuickBooks 2013.
Outlook is the Windows default mail client.
I have removed and re-installed QuickBooks twice!

Before I had to wipe clean my PC QuickBooks worked perfectly with Outlook
Thanks

Got a client that is using Quickbooks 2018. They are trying to update their file using an accountants copy. They must use the web version because they don't have the same year of quickbooks. Also, the client's quickbook is the one a year behind the accountant. From our research, these items of concern are fine and will not impact the process. The company file opens fine, they just can't update it with the accountant's copy. Below is the link to their error. https://quickbooks.intuit.com/community/Reports-and-accounting/Unrecoverable-Error-when-importing-Accountant-s-Changes/m-p/202619

The error code is: 26021 03020

Has anybody encountered this error before?

We have created a new QuickBooks company file for a client using QuickBooks Premier 2019.  We have a Chart of Accounts in a worksheet created with Excel 2016.  After selecting Chart of Accounts in QuickBooks, we select the Import option.  A message is displayed that Excel is being opened.  The file and sheet is selected.  Data from the worksheet is mapped and saved. When IMPORT or PREVIEW is selected, an error message stating "QuickBooks could not open the Excel file specified" is displayed.

The computer is running Windows 10 Pro.  We have imported Chart of Account information using older versions of QuickBooks (2013) with Excel 2010.  This is first attempt using the newer versions of QuickBooks and Excel.

Since the company file was created with QB2019, the file could not be opened with the older QuickBooks version.  We would like to resolve this import issue so we do not have to recreate the file using the older versions of QuickBooks and Excel.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

One of my client's Quickbooks access gets slow when multiple users access to server where QB is hosted. I checked the processing power available, and RAM, CPU, and Ethernet usage is between 10%-20%, so that shouldn't be the cause of the issue. Other users accessing files on the server don't seem to be having any issues.

Rebooting either the workstation or the server seems to help, although it can be tedious to reboot on a regular basis as it's proved to need.

Any ideas on how to keep Quickbooks running at it's best?

Learn the essential features and functions of the popular JavaScript framework for building mobile, desktop and web applications.

quickbooks - creating and emailing invoices leads to QB generating a filename like Inv_####_from_companyname_#####random number.pdf.  The random numbers don't increment and there's no apparent pattern to them.

Need to find out how the random number at the end is derived, what it's used for, and why it's included in the invoice file name.  Also whether it can be removed.

I have a client who is trying to use the merchant center in quickbooks premier 2018. Quickbooks uses the I.E. browser within it's program so if there are issues with I.E. then there will be issues inside of quickbooks where it is accessing the Internet. There are a few issues with Internet Explorer that I believe are keeping it from working correctly. I think once we resolve the I.E. issues, the rest will take care of itself. The system was just upgraded from windows 7 pro to windows 10 pro version 1903. Internet explorer is exhibiting some strange issues. On a simple page like msn.com,  graphics do not show. A black box (w/o a red x) shows in place of the correct graphic. Accessing the merchant center via I.E. will initially display page info but once you click on one of the options, it moves to the next screen and generates a black box that would be where the detailed information would be. I have attached a copy of how it looks on a working version of I.E. (my computer, windows 10 pro 1803, i.E. 11 vs the non working verson on windows 10 pro 1903, i.E. 11.

I have removed I.E. on that computer via the windows features and reinstalled it. I have done a reset on I.E. and the advanced option on the advanced tab on I.E. settings. I have checked the media settings and it is set to show images. During the uninstall, I also deleted any I.E. info from the appdata folder for any users.

I have tried it both clean (to check websites like msn) and with the program requirements …

When using work resource and Quickbooks, I had an update for quickbooks and it went through. Told me to restart computer and i did. I restarted every computer that had anything to do with this. Still get the same response when trying to open  Quickbooks using work resources, Need to reboot computer to finish installing update. Can open quickbooks on server or any other computer but not through work resources.

Looking to enforce 60 day password changes on all AD accounts.  This includes the QuickBooks DB Manager account QBDataServiceUser23

Everything I've read suggests that this account can't be managed like a normal AD account . . . that QuickBooks does all the password management internally.

I don't think that wil work for the comliance standards we are looking to meet.

Can anyone provide some general insight as to how this account can be managed/locked down?

Thanks!

Using Quickbooks 2019 Pro, Desktop, along with their merchant services. If you have an order set up for recurring payments, and the client adds several new users to their service,  is there a way to update that recurring payment to reflect the new services? (eg. a client buys 5 email licenses, and we set up a recurring payment for 5 units at $X/ea. Now they want to add a 6th license. Is there a way to update that recurring payment?)

Error MessageNew Client is having import issues with Quickbooks 2019,   Windows 7-64bit all patches applied

When she tries to download Transactions it wants to put it into 2017 not 2019

So I go to Manually download the Transactions but QB says that I do not have a Valid Browser

I upgrade all Browser but still get the message.....I was on the phone with QB Tech support for over an Hour and well.....I might as well be talking to my Dog.

The message is attached....I ran updates on QB 2019 and all patches on the PC but still get the same message...

How do I repair without loosing another few hours talking to dogs??????

Using Quickbooks for Mac 2016.  When I open one of my company files, the Customer Center window opens, because I had it open when I last closed Quickbooks.  Then I see 3 or 4 other windows open and disappear (a Deposit window, a Timesheet window, I think.)  

When the window-opening animations complete, the one open windows can be dragged into new positions, but not resized, and not closed, and does not recognize any mouse or keyboard interactions.  The program itself displays every menu item as hidden.  I have to Force Quit Quickbooks to take it down.

I tried reinstalling the program, but I get the same behavior.  Odd, because this company file was working fine just two days ago.  I back up every time I close the file, and I've tried restoring some recent backups, but they behave the same, even backups taken from a week ago.    Not sure what to do next.

Prepare for the CompTIA Network+ exam by learning how to troubleshoot, configure, and manage both wired and wireless networks.

Got a customer usiong Quickbooks Pro 2013, that has somehow forgotten his password.
My first thought is that Quickbooks will not be much help, as they only support the current & two previous versions, so I am going to suggest he buy the latest & greatest version & take advantage of that initial support period, unless anyone has any other suggestions...

Have a potential client, that has 2 marina locations.  They have DSL (10Mbps) as best possible internet source.  They currently have a VPN for voice network, using those same DSL connections.  QoS priority is the phones.  Due to the small bandwidth, instead of using the RDP connection to one slave computer at Site A... They are looking for cloud based software to manage the marina businesses as one entity.  The software must be cloud based, and a Terminal Server is not an option.  It must work with Quickbooks for all accounting.

Xeon E2136Xeon SilverHi,
 I am looking at two separate servers that come with two different CPUs (please see screenshots for details).
 When I compare Average CPU Mark, E-2136 @ 3.3Ghz with 6 cores has 15,338 compared to Xeon Silver @ 1.80GHz with 8 cores that has 10,883. But the price of E-2136 @3.3Ghz  is cheaper than Silver @1.8Ghz. I am going to set up Hyper-V server with two VMs (one VM is domain controller and the other VM is Terminal Server running Quickbooks with 2 users and MS ACCESS database accessed by about 8 users via Remoet Desktop Connection. Btw, MS ACCESS database will be converted to MS SQL database at some point)
   
Here are website links for the screenshots:
https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+Silver+4108+%40+1.80GHz&id=3167
https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+E-2136+%40+3.30GHz&id=3363

 When you look at CPUs these days, they have so many varieties and down right confusing.
 Which CPU is better and why?

Thanks.

I have a user who when tries to restore a Quickbooks database that is 100M stored on the server over the network takes hours.  When he copies the db from the server to his desktop which takes a few seconds then tries to restore it the process takes less then a min.  I would like to use wireshark to possibly identify the issue.

Questions
  1. Do i need to run Wireshark on his computer or on any computer to see if there are any issues?
  2. What should i be looking for?
  3. Should i attach a capture file or is that not secure?

My Windows 10 computer crashed and won't boot. I have tried all the Windows repair options, system restore and system recovery with no success. when I try to boot I continually get the infamous error that something went wrong and my computer needs to shut down. I can connect the HDD externally and se the partitions and data. the most important data I Ned to recover is my QuickBooks data. I plan to replace the HDD, reinstall Windows, QB and my other software. my question is this, whisk QB files or folders do I need to recover and restore to QB to get my company data back?

Thank you.
