QuickBooks is an easy-to-use, professional bookkeeping software that takes care of all your business accounting needs. It can effectively keep track of your organization’s financial procedures and save you considerable time while managing information. It allows you to monitor all the accounting data with ease and take important financial decisions quickly. Despite being a versatile software system, users still face corruption in their QuickBooks company files. This corruption generally occurs as a result of abnormal shutdown of the system, virus infection, hardware failures, etc. As a result, all your critical business information in the file becomes inaccessible. To overcome the problem, you should perform QuickBooks repair through advanced third-party software.
Sometimes, when you upgrade a company file to a higher version of QuickBooks, various errors show up on your screen. A common case is error C=330. This error is received when you have some corrupt records in the company file and you try to move to a higher QuickBooks version.
In order to fix the above error, you should follow the procedure as described below:
- Start the existing version of QuickBooks. In case the upgrade process caused overwriting of the older QuickBooks version, you should first uninstall both the versions and try reinstalling them to different locations. This will help you use both versions on the same computer.
- Now restore all the backed up data during the update process to a new company file. This will prevent overwriting of the existing file. If you get a message ‘filename already exists’, you need to specify a different name for the file.
- In order to verify this data, use the ‘Verify Data’ utility. To do this, go to ‘File’ menu, select ‘Utilities, and click ‘Verify Data’.
- You may see any of the following messages:
- ‘QuickBooks detected no problems with your data’
If you get this message, you can try to update the company file.
- ‘Data has lost integrity.‘
If you see this message, use the ‘Rebuild Data’ tool for rebuilding the company file. After running this utility, rerun ‘Verify Data’ to make sure that there are no more problems.
