There are several potential causes for QuickBooks failing to open a company file. Firstly, ensure QuickBooks is updated to the latest version. Try restarting both QuickBooks and your computer to resolve any temporary glitches. If the issue persists, check for file corruption by verifying the company file. You can do this by opening the sample company file or using the QuickBooks File Doctor tool to diagnose and repair file issues. Additionally, ensure proper network connectivity and file permissions. If the problem persists, restoring a recent backup or contacting QuickBooks support for further assistance.
