1. Choose Company File Issues from the right side of your screen.
2. Further, choose the Run QuickBooks File Doctor button. The tool might take some time to run; wait until then.

@joshua21weissman good day, we are having the same issue with only 2 of our users. I have made sue that updates to both QB and M365 were performed and followed the guidance that you provided and it still does not work. I have no problems with our other users so it only affects the 2. I contacted QB and they are stating that the issue is with Microsoft. Would you happen to have any other solutions? this has been happening since January. TIA!

* To add one user is using Windows 11 and the other is on Windows 10.
