Access the Company File through a Different Path
When we open QuickBooks, it auto opens the data file. While this is not an issue, reopening over and over again could make it vulnerable to invite bugs. Instead, try these steps to open the file in an alternate manner –
Go to the QB icon on your desktop and right-click on it.
Press and hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard and choose QB to Run as Administrator.
Do not release the key until you are directed to the No Company Open window.
By performing these steps, we are stopping QuickBooks from opening the company file on its own.
When the window opens, tap on the File tab and select the “Open or Restore Company” options from the given list.
Now, you need to choose “Open a company file” and hit the Next button.
Select the Network option and browse to the folder in which your company file is stored.
Choose your data file and press the Open button. If the file opens up without any issue, the error has been fixed.
