Unable to retrieve company file after closing it

Quickbooks Pro 2005 without upgrade. I needed to create a new company file in Quickbooks, so I closed my running company file. When I tried to retrieve my running company file all of the date reverted to 2005. Please help!

    Thank you! You are correct, I was trying to open the wrong file. I was trying to open the file with the most recent date. I tried to open every other file and found the correct file. Thanks again for your help. You saved me alot of time.

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 am getting error codes 6129,0 and 6073, 816 on my quickbooks 2008. What can I do to open the company?


This error can occur when:
  • Data is converted or restored over a network.
  • Several computers are acting as host for the QuickBooks data file.
  • QuickBooks is unable to communicate with the server.
  • There is data damage in your company file.

If the error occurred when you were restoring a company file from a backup or updating a company file to a newer version of QuickBooks over a network:
  1. Copy the backup file (.qbb file extension) or the company file you want to update (.qbw file extension) to a local hard drive.
  2. Restore the backup or update the company file.
  3. Copy the restored or updated company file back to its original location.

If the error occurred when you were trying to open and use a company file:
  1. Update QuickBooks to the most current release on all computers that open the company file.
  2. Close QuickBooks on all the computers with access to this company file.
  3. On the computer you select to host the company file, switch to single-user mode, and then back to multi-user mode:
    1. Open QuickBooks and open the company file.
    2. Choose File > Switch to Single-user Mode.
    3. Choose File > Utilities > Stop Hosting Multi-User Access.
    4. Choose File > Switch to Multi-user Mode.
    5. Choose File > Close Company to close the company file.
  4. On all other computers that will use the company file, stop hosting multi-user access :
    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Repeat steps 4.a and 4.b for each computer other than the host computer.
  5. Configure the QuickBooks server for multi-user access:
    1. Click the Windows Start button and choose All Programs > QuickBooks > QuickBooks Database Server Manager.
    2. Click the Scan Folders tab.
    3. 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.
    4. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
    • If other company files open without error, the company file generating the error message may be damaged. For more information refer to Verifying and rebuilding QuickBooks company data.

Quickbooks pro 2005 I cant open my backup files


You are not able to open a backup file in Quickbooks, Only restore it, to open a previous backup, the easiest way is to make a copy of your current company file, then restore the backup over it. This will give you a company file with the backup data.

My QB crashes everytime I try to invoice...only with one company, but with others it runs fine. Problem is i need the giles from that one company, What do I do?


You should verify your data file (Click on file, click on utilities, click on verify data) If quickbooks doesn't find any problems, Back up your company to a different location and if your using 2006 or higher, create a portable file, close quickbooks, reopen quickbooks, and then click on open portable. When it prompts you to backup, click ok and back up again using a different file name.
You then need to go to templates, and (sorry to tell you this ) change each one to the default setting (click on lists, click on templates, the click on templates at the bottom, and click on edit, click on additional customization and then default. Then click save and close. Do this for all templates.
Also resort each list (item customer and vendor) to their original order.

Close the file and then reopen and verify data - if this doesn't fix the problem you will need to contact a pro advisor or intuit for aid in fixing the file

Cant access info tool bar grayed out


I saw this same problem on a client's computer. BelgianAlien's analysis was correct... problem was an advertisement. Thing was, we couldn't *see* the advertisement because the window wasn't maximixed. Note that you only get those ads *after* you log into your company file though! Aha! So, what I did was click cancel when it would request the password for the company file. Without that, it can't log into the company file (and pop up the ad) and then QB prompts you for where to find the company file. You can maximize the window now, log in, kill the advertisement, and go about your business.

Upgrading from Quickbooks Pro 2003 to Quickbooks 2009


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
