Might be a silly question, but - do you have Access installed on both machines? If you have moved the access file to your networking file, you'll need the main program on the machine you are trying to access it FROM as well...

Unable Connect To Database

Need more detail in order to help you. Let's start with:

Is this a home or office PC (or Mac, or Linux machine)?
Is the database stored on your machine, or are you connecting to a database server?
What type of database (Oracle, MS Access, Sybase, etc.)?
What type of client / business software are you trying to use to connect to this database?

With that, I may be of some assistance.

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.

Is there a utility to repair a Quickbooks POS

I don't believe there is such a utility.

However, in looking for a POS solution, to your question, I was directed to this page (a special phone number for Intuit Data Recovery Services):

My research said that this article applies to POS just as it does to the regular product (even though this page does not specify that it relates to POS).

Quickbooks items list

That depends on whether you are using QuickBooks, or QuickBooks Point of Sale.
For QuickBooks, one of the fastest ways to determine the number of Items, is to export the Items list to an exel spreadsheet. Once there, you subtract the number of rows used for header information.
This is important information to know, as with the quickbooks, you may run into a list limitation of 10,000 items ( or listings in the items list, this will include inactive items and sales tax items, non-inventory items and such.).
To export the lists, you should find a listing under the file menu.
If you are using Point of Sale, for versions 1 to 3, your list limits are 30,000. For versions 4 and up, there was a change to the databases that makes them pretty much unlimited. The latest version, 7, will tell you the number of items at the bottom of the items list screen.
