Updating quickbooks company file

We want to name this file something very simple so perhaps just call it Company. Once you have deleted the tlg file, proceed with attempting to open the file again, using the steps outlined in step 5 above.If the file opens, then we know that the problem stems from an irregularity in the file name, Windows recognition of the file name, Quick Books recognition of the file name, or Sybase protocols.In this case you can probable return to your original location, delete the *file from that directory, and then open your normal QBW file.

Step 1: The 1st step that I recommend is that you return to the ‘No Company Open’ screen, if you have that sample file open, then select the option to close/log-off from the File Menu.One good way of doing this is to press and hold the Control (Ctrl) key while double clicking the actual Quick Books application icon (not your Quick Books file icon).If the program still does not open while holding down the Ctrl key then you have a Quick Books application issue, and not a ‘file issue’.(While Intuit will not tell you this unless you experience certain types of file problems, Sybase recommends that a database using their database server never have any non-alphanumeric characters of any type including spaces in the file name.Because Quick Books automatically creates the ‘file name’ from the Company Name entered during set-up, it isn’t uncommon to find non-alphanumeric characters in Quick Books Company file names.) If these seven steps haven’t resolved your problem, then chances are you have some serious corruption associated with the Company file itself.
