SOLVEDby QuickBooksUpdated December 23, 2022

When opening previous reconciliation reports, you may see the following error in Adobe Reader: There is a problem with Adobe Acrobat/Reader. If it is running, please exit and try again. (103:103)

  2. Launch Adobe Reader.
  3. Click on the Edit menu, select Preferences.
  4. In the Categories list, select Security (Enhanced).
  5. Uncheck Enable Protected Mode at Startup.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Close Adobe Reader.

You should now be able to reopen QuickBooks Online and view previous reconciliation reports.
