Re: Error: Missing Name List Problem

We appreciate you performing a troubleshooting step to fix the problem, Irene6.


Aside from using the QuickBooks File Doctor Tool, let's re-sort the vendor's lists to repair any damaged data lists in your company file.


Here's how:


  1. Click Lists on the top menu.
  2. Choose Customer & Vendor Profile Lists.
  3. Click Vendor Type Lists.
  4. Click the Vendor Type drop-down button and choose Show Inactive Vendor Types.
  5. Choose the item.
  6. Click Vendor Type Lists drop-down button and choose Re-sort List.
  7. Click OK to confirm.

For more details about re-sorting the lists, you can check out this article: Re-sort lists.


If the same thing happens, you can check out Resolve data damage on your company file article for more troubleshooting steps option.


I've got an article for more details about the maximum number of list entries in QuickBooks: Maximum number of list entries (list limits and custom fields).


Feel free to reply to this post if you need anything else with repairing damaged data on your company file.
