I am trying to condense my quickbooks,file. When I try, I am told the closing date must be changed from an early date already there to a more current one. I can't find the place to change the closing date.

Re: Cannot find how to change closing date
Open QuickBooks then go to "edit" at the top left side of the page. This will open a drop down list. Then go all the way down to the last choice which is "preferences". Then choose "accounting" This will open two choices - my preferences on one tab and "company preferences" on the other. Choose company preferences and you will find a place there to set the date that the books are closed through. Enter your date and then hit "ok" and close the preferences area. The software will change the date and tell you where to go from that point.

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.)
Have the administrator of Quickbooks log in mono-user mode and go under Edit --> Preferences --> Accounting --> Company Preferences Tab --> Change the closure date / password from there. He will be able to remove or assign a new password.
