    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.

    I want to back up a 2nd copy of a quickbooks pro 2006 file but it won't work. When i try and load it from the backup file on my hard drive it says that windows cannot open the file, and to use a program...

    You need to make the backup from quickbooks using file,
    backup. Select the drive you want the data stored on. Then if you need the backup data you need to use file, restore.
    you are only backing up the data so you have to run the
    file from the program, with the restored data.

    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.)

    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
