Question about Intuit QuickBooks: Pro 2005 for PC
There can be multiple causes for this one.
You may have data damage, with broken transactions.
You may have List damage, which a verify will not pick up.
Your list of accounts\ customer names, may actually be so complex (jobs plays into this also) that you are crashing the computers resources-running it out of memory. This is especially true of older computers. This data file ay have been in operation for years, and become very large ( do control + 1 to see the file size).
Also, it was noted in some of the older versions, that Qb could have problems printing a large number of statements. In those cases, it was recommended that you try 100, then 200, and so on until you found the breaking point (which, if memmory serves was around 400, give ot take).
Under file, utilities, there will be a verify data option ( with a large file on an older system , this can take a LONG time, to the point you think it has quit, if the Hard disk light is flashing, it is still working on it, It may take hours, or in some cases, more than a day to complete.
Another issue that may affect the outcome is the number of UNUSED accounts. They may be empty, but the program still has to crawl through them. Later versions have a capability called a Portable Company File, which removes unused accounts, names and such, and can speed the efficiency, this was not present in your version.
