  • c=43

    During payroll yesterday a "fatal error" showed up. Does anyone know anything about this? Like what do we need to do to get rid of it?

    If you are on a network copy the company file to your on PC then run the verify and rebuild on the file.

    Let me know if that works.

      network copy?

      not on a network copy. I tried to verify the integrity of data (as instructed in fatal error) and it did not work. and what does C=43 mean?

        It is trying to read a transaction in your company database, but can't because of data integrity problems.

        Try rebuilding.

        If that doesn't work, you can restore your last good backup, or get your data repaired.

          Shannon is right... C=43 basically means data corruption.

          Just make sure you copy the file to which ever PC you run the rebuild from, it will remind you if you forget.

            thanks for your help

            Thanks - I'll try rebuilding in the morning.

            By the way, how does data become corrupt? Is there a utility I should be running? Or is there a typical way to corrupt data? I'd like to avoid it in the future.

              Data damage is typically caused when a computer either locks up or is forcibly shut down while working in QuickBooks. Anyhing that interrupts the transfer of data between the program and the data file itself. It is a lot more common with multiuser setups that are on a network.

                Network blips, power blips, Windows blips...all can cause result in damaged data.

                The following can help:

                * Use same kind of network cards on all your workstations
                * Frequently defrag your server's hard drive
                * Plug your server and wkstations into UPS's
                * Upgrade from Windows 95, 98, ME, and XP home editions to Win 2000 or XP Professional.

                Viruses and hard drive media problems cause problems sometimes. Also, it is good to exit QB before powering down the PC
