Why Can't open company file in QuickBooks Desktop After latest update?

Copper Contributor

I’m having trouble opening my company file in QuickBooks Desktop. Every time I try, I get an error message saying the file cannot be opened. I've tried restarting my computer and QuickBooks, but the problem persists. What could be causing this issue, and how can I resolve it?

Hi @muleWilliams140,


If you can't open your company file in QuickBooks Desktop, verify the file path, ensure you have the latest updates, and check file permissions. Use QuickBooks File Doctor to diagnose and repair issues. If needed, restore from a recent backup or seek professional technical support.
