Can't log in - 2nd user -

We have a 2 user license of QB Pro 2014.  The data is hosted on my secretary's drive and we are in a peer to peer network.  If she is logged in (in multiuser mode) I cannot get in.  The message states that we have a 2 user license and the host is set up to share but the company I am opening is unable to access it.  If I get her to log out and I log in first, then go into multi user mode, then she has no problem logging in.

Let's get this working for you, gwynette.dixon.

There's a possibility that you’re QuickBooks (first computer) and the other workstation’s QuickBooks are not working on the same company file. 

To check the file location:

  1. Press F2 on your keyboard while in your QuickBooks desktop to determine the company file information. 
  2. You can then match it with the file location that the other computer is in.

You can refer to the screenshot below.

If they have the same location, you can refer to this link to re-fresh your multi-user set up:

Let me know how it goes, or if you need anything else. Thanks a lot.

Re: Set up multi users - 4 users but only admin has access to company file

I have called in three times and asked for help setting up 4 users to access the company file simultaneously. I am the admin and have set up the users three times with the rep telling me how to do it the same way each time. I currently see them in my user list after the third call but no one else can access the file. The file does not show up in their pick list. I have multi user access enabled. The file they need to access was saved and downloaded from our Online account to the desktop. We have had nothing but problems with this conversion and every time I call in there is someone with such a thick accent talking to me that it takes almost an hour each time to communicate and get help. Each time the rep has been reading the directions instead of knowing right away what I need. I have no confidence in your representatives. The last time I spoke to someone on chat, I was told to call yet another number because they could not help me.

Re: Set up multi users - 4 users but only admin has access to company file

This isn't the service we want you to experience, @sherrayinc.

 

I understand how you feel when something isn't working the way you need it to. This time, I'm here to help you set up the multi-user access to your company file.

 

To start with, there are three main conditions that you'll have to accomplish so that your other user's can access your company file. These conditions are:

  • Windows File permissions
  • Database Server Manager
  • QuickBooks User Login Credentials

To add, I've included this article you can read to learn more about these conditions: Host your Company Data file in Multi-User Mode.

 

Thus, let's configure the folder's permission to share your company file. You can consider this as one of the reasons why your other users cannot access your company file. To do so:

  1. Find and open the folder where you saved your company file.
  2. Right click to open the other options of your folder.
  3. Choose Properties.
  4. Under Security, select Advanced.
  5. Select QBDataServiceUserXX.
  6. Click Edit.
  7. Click Allowed.

In addition, here's an article you can read to learn more about how you can configure your company file's folder permission: Set Up Folder and Windows Access Permissions.

 

However, if your other users are still unable to access your files, you can follow the other steps outlined in this article: Set Up and Install a Multi-User Network for QuickBooks Desktop.

 

From there, you'll be guided through the steps that'll help you set up you company file so that youe other users can access it successfully.

 

Lastly, I've also added this helpful articles in case you'll bump into error when hosting your company file for multi-user access: How to Fx Error H202 and H505?

 

If there's anything else that I can help you with, please let me know in the comment section down below. I'll be always around ready to help.
