How To Run Data Verification In Peachtree Accounting

Data Verification is a Peachtree utility that allows you to verify if any of your data files are missing or possibly damaged. During the verification process, Peachtree makes any needed changes so that your data records are compatible with Peachtree data formats. For example, if an ID in a data record has more than the maximum allowable characters, Peachtree will truncate the ID. Also, any files that Peachtree finds to be corrupt and unusable are deleted during the verification process.
Following verification, Peachtree generates a log that details all errors encountered and reports on any changes made, as well as any corrupt records deleted. Follow these steps to run the test:

  1. In your company, from the Tasks menu select System, Change Accounting Period.
  2. Highlight the first Accounting Period on the list and click OK.
  3. From the File menu, select Data Verification.
  4. Select the Both Tests (recommended) option from the menu and click Start.
  5. You will be prompted to make a backup of your Peachtree data. This is a required step. Click Save. The data verification test will begin automatically when the backup is complete.
  6. If no errors were found, click Close. If errors were found, you can examine the details of the tests by clicking the View Error Log button.
  7. To change back to the current Accounting Period follow steps 1 and 2 above.

after restore database lost my graph of sales ,


You should run Verify to check for damage whenever QuickBooks appears to be functioning improperly or erroneously. The Verify Data utility detects data damage, and then logs any errors it finds in a file named Qbwin.log. The Qbwin.log file is contiguous, so that every time you verify, rebuild, condense, or update your data, any integrity issues found will be appended to the end of the Qbwin.log file. It is common for the Qbwin.log to become very large. You can identify only current errors in the data file by renaming the Qbwin.log file, located in your QuickBooks directory, to Qbwin.old. QuickBooks will create a new Qbwin.log file to store the results of the utility you ran most recently. To run the Verify utility

what is error c=44


QuickBooks attempts to change a damaged transaction or record, you may receive a fatal or unexpected error that contains the value C=44. The C= value in the message indicates the type of error the program has encountered. Typical causes include system lockups and power failures while using QuickBooks. To resolve this issue:
  1. In QuickBooks, select the Window menu and select Close All.
  2. Select the File menu and select Utilities >Verify Data.
  3. If the message "Your data has lost integrity" appears, or the error also occurs while running Verify, select the File menu and select Utilities > Rebuild Data.
  4. When the Rebuild utility has completed, run the Verify utility again to ensure that all problems have been corrected (see step 2).
  5. If the error persists after rebuilding, restore a recent backup that does not generate the error.

The connection to the company file has been lost Quickbooks must close immediately. Any unsaved data will need to be re-entered. My Company file is damaged and i have tried opening it on the another computer still having the same problem


You will need to verify and rebuild your data file. Please follow the steps i provided, this will guide you threw the process.

Verify your data:

1. Close and reopen QuickBooks to create a new Qbwin.log file.
2. Choose Window > Close All, so that no company files or QuickBooks windows are open.
3. Choose File > Utilities > Verify Data.
* If you see QuickBooks detected no problems with your data, your data is clean. Click OK.
* If you see Your data has lost integrity, your data file is damaged. Run the Rebuild Data utility to repair the damage. You may need to run Rebuild two or more times to repair all of the damage. Rerun the Verify Data utility after each rebuild to verify that the errors have been corrected.
* If your see A data problem prevents QuickBooks from continuing, then your data file has a structural problem. Run the Rebuild Data utility to repair the damage.

Rebuild your data:

Important: If the company file is on a network drive, copy the file to a local computer before attempting to run this utility. Be prepared for this computer to be unavailable for several hours running the Rebuild utility. Never rebuild or update a company data file that is located on a remote drive (for example, by accessing it over your network).

If you can't open QuickBooks to run the Rebuild Data utility refer to QuickBooks does not open.

If you're unable to open your company file when double-clicking your QuickBooks desktop icon, see Opening QuickBooks when troubleshooting.

To rebuild the file:

1. Choose Window > Close All.
2. Choose File > Utilities > Rebuild Data.
3. Click OK to the warning message requiring a backup of the company file before starting the rebuild.

Important: Do not replace your current backup. Intuit recommends using a newly formatted external media source for this backup (such as a CD or DVD). If necessary, back up to your local hard drive.
If a message appears asking if you want to replace the backup file, click No.
To avoid overwriting the current file, enter a new name in the Filename field.

4. At the bottom of the QuickBooks Backup window, click OK.

Important: If the backup process fails, at the Rebuild prompt, click Cancel.
Do not continue the Rebuild process with your original company file if the back up process does not complete successfully. This can lead to permanent data loss.
You must make a copy of the company file and attempt the Rebuild process again using the copy of the company file.
Rename the copy of the company file with a unique name to avoid confusion with the original file.

5. The Rebuild Data utility starts as soon as the backup process completes. Click OK to the Rebuild has completed message.
6. Close the company file, and then reopen it to refresh the lists in the file:
1. Choose File > Close Company.
2. Open the company file:
* QuickBooks 2008 and 2007: Choose File > Open or Restore Company. Then select Open a company file and click Next.
* QuickBooks 2006: Choose File > Open Company.
7. Click the company file, and click Open.
8. Run the Verify Data utility.
