Click this link and follow steps to restore a backup for use with an earlier QuickBooks version.
Prepare you file for updating.
Close the company file in the previous version.
Open the company file that has been rebuilt and update to the new version.
Rebuild the company file in the new version of QuickBooks to ensure the error does not occur.
Choose File > Close Company to close the company file.
On all other computers that will use the company file, stop hosting multi-user access :
Press and hold Ctrl while you open the QuickBooks program and continue pressing Ctrl until QuickBooks opens completely. This opens QuickBooks without opening a company file.
Choose File > Utilities >Stop Hosting Multi-User Access. If that option doesn't appear, the computer is not hosting and no further action is necessary.
Repeat steps 4.a and 4.b for each computer other than the host computer.
Configure the QuickBooks server for multi-user access:
Click the Windows Start button and choose All Programs > QuickBooks > QuickBooks Database Server Manager.
Click the Scan Folders tab.
Click the Add Folder button, select the folder that contains your QuickBooks company file, and click OK. Repeat this step if necessary to add additional company file folders.
Click the Scan button to begin scanning. After the scan is finished, the company files in the scanned folders are configured for multi-user access.
Open the company file in QuickBooks. If you receive the same error message, refer to Settings required for firewalls to make sure your firewall is properly configured to allow QuickBooks access to your company file.
Open the company file in QuickBooks. If you receive the same error message, open a different company file or a sample company file located in one of the folders you scanned with the Database Server Manager.
If no company file will open, reboot the host computer and try again.
PLEASE REMEMBER THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY PROBLEM IN OPENING A QB PRO 2008 COMPANY FILE IN PREMIER 2008. THERE SHOULD BE SOME OTHER REASON TO IT .
If you need the resolution, please reply with the foll :
1. Which Windows Version you have . Is it Win XP or Vista or 7?
2. How do you try to open the company file ? Please list the steps .
3. Do you get any erro msg ?
4. Does QB crash?
5. Do you have a backup company file QBB or main company file QBW ?
Please try these steps or reply to my questions:
1. Change the location of the company file.
2. Disable UAC.
2. Rename the company file .
3. Delete the ND and TLG file .
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.)
I would not open up the company file in 2009. Open your 2003 Quickbooks, make a backup and then restore the back up in 2009. If you do run into problems you might want to upgrade into 2006 and then to 2009. (you will need to find someone who can do this for you if you don't have a 2006 version. I can help you with that if you need it
Good morning, my name is Karin.
To solve this, first be sure that you don't have the Cap lock on and retry the ID and password.
If that isn't the problem and you still can't open the file, QuickBooks offers a password reset at their website if you have a current backup. The page walks you through the process step by step. You will need to have your license number and also you need to verify that your contact information is on file with them.
Here is the link for the 2005 and earlier password removal:
