Quickbooks 2007 MAC - I made entries several months ago in my checkbook. The date the file was last saved was June 2, 2008. However, when I opened the file last evening, all of my 2008 entries are gone! I appreciate any help you can offer.

    The first idea was not helpful.

    The data retrieve link was for Windows. I'm running Quickbooks 2007 Pro for MAC R7.

  • thewingerts Oct 20, 2008

    I searched for the files - not really sure how you wanted me to do that.

    The "recover my files" you wanted me to download - where do I find that?

    I appreciate your ideas.

You might have accidentally deleted the files. Files that have been deleted are not actually deleted from the hard drive until something else is written on the space allotted for them. There are programs that can recover deleted files. However, if it has been replaced by a new file it would be impossible for you to recover them. This is the site of recover my files.

Hmm..does your version of quickbooks support a regression report, meaning that it keeps a log file of all transactions, and also backups?

First of all run a search for the files - they may have been used.
If that doesnt work, you may want to download the trial of "recover my files" and let it restore the missing ones

Best of luck

Quickbooks error 3371

When you register or open QuickBooks, you see one of these error messages:
  • Could not initialize license properties. Error 3371: QuickBooks could not load the license data. This may be caused by missing or damaged files.
  • Could not initialize license properties. [Error 3371, Status Code -11118] QuickBooks could not load the license data. This may be caused by missing or damaged files.
  • Could not initialize license properties. [Error: 3371, Status Code -1] QuickBooks could not load the license data. This may be caused by missing or damaged files.
Important: This issue can occur if your product is hosted by Right Networks and you access QuickBooks with WebConnect and then select to open the file without saving. If you use QuickBooks Enterprise and your product is hosted by Right Networks, you must save the file and then import it.

How to fix it:

Before proceeding, ensure that your copy of Microsoft Windows is up to date.
If the latest Windows updates are not installed, the QuickBooks installation can fail or become damaged. To install the latest updates in Windows, click the Windows Start or Logo button, choose All Programs > Windows Update. Once started be sure to install any updates marked critical.
You may need to re-install your software. Have your license number and product number for your version of QuickBooks ready.

Try these steps in the order shown. If the first one fixes the problem, you do not need to do the other steps.

Re-create damaged EntitlementDataStore.ecml
  1. Close QuickBooks if it's open.
  2. Open the entitlement data folder for your operating system and version of QuickBooks.
    1. On your keyboard, press Windows + R to open the Run window.
    2. Enter (or copy and paste) the following information, and then press Enter
      • QuickBooks 2014 and Enterprise 14.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v8
      • QuickBooks 2013 and Enterprise 13.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v8
      • QuickBooks 2012 and Enterprise 12.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v6.0
      • QuickBooks 2011 and Enterprise 11.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v6.0
      • QuickBooks 2010 and Enterprise 10.0 : C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v6.0
      • QuickBooks 2009 and Enterprise 9.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v5
      • QuickBooks 2008 and Enterprise 8.0: C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v5

    Unable to retrieve company file after closing it

    You probably opened an old file. You will need to find the current file that you were using. Use the search and search for all files ending in .QBW
    Check the dates they were last used (you don't want the one with the most current date since that was the old file that was opened.)

    MS Excel 2007 won't save my worksheet


    I find this a little perplexing too. Without sounding patronising are you sure you are saving it to the same location that you are attempting to open it from?

    Something to try.. Excel keeps a record of the last 4 things you were working on in the file menu. Try clicking 'File' then the 2 little down arrows (if they are there) and it should bring up a list of previous documents. Try the last one or 2 and see if either of these are a more up to date version than the one you last worked on. If so in future always choose 'File' - 'Save as' when saving a document and make sure you choose a document path you are sure of.

    Really hope this helps.

    I had to put in a new power supply and now when i launch my quick

    You need to find your current file. Quickbooks has defaulted to it's standard set up. To find all of your quickbooks file do a search for .QBW files. On XP you can find the search on the windows tab. Search for all files that have.qbw in the name. Once you find all of them, note their locations and date of last access. (the lastest date will be the old file since Quickbooks opened that one up. What you are looking for is the file accessed right before you put in the new power supply.
    One you find that file, wirite down the location and then open Quickbooks. Click on open file and then browse to the location that you wrote down. Click on the quickbooks file to open it. This should be your most up to date file and you should be good to go.

    QuickBooks 2005

    This sounds very much like a corrupt database. Blank transactions should not be allowed by a datafile that is fully intact.
    You can start by verifying the data. Make sure all of the windows are closed, then go to file, utilities, verify.
    If the verify passes, (and it may, even if damage is present), you may want to take the step of rebuilding the data.
    Personal preference, I like to copy the company file to the desktop and run the rebuild on the copy, that way if everything goes to heck in a hand basket, the original file is still there.
    If the issue continues after a rebuild, you may be faced with a situation where only Intuit can attempt to repair the data. The only problem is, they no longer support this version, and will only work on the file if you are upgrading to the 2008 version!
    One way to quickly get an indicator the data is damaged, run a standard balance sheet for all dates on a cash basis. If the two bold numbers on the report are not in balance- you can pretty much bet the company file is damaged. Remeber, this type of issue will only be seen in a single company file, other files on the same computer can be fine.
