This error usually occurs when there's a problem with the company file data. We can run the QuickBooks file doctor app to repair the company file.

I do not have trouble opening the file.  When I backup QB states there is an error.  The error code is 194.  When I search 194, 196 comes up.

As mentioned by my peer AlcaeusF above, error 194 occurs when there are some issues with your QuickBooks company file data. To get this sorted out, we can try repairing your QuickBooks which can help fix data-related issues.

 

Let me guide you how:

  2. Create a backup for your company file. 
  3. Select Start and then Control Panel.
  4. Select Programs and Features. If necessary, choose Uninstall a program.
  5. Select QuickBooks in the list of programs and choose Uninstall/Change.
  6. Select Continue, then Next.
  7. Select Repair then Next. Wait for the Repair to complete.
  8. Choose Finish. Restart your computer if prompted.

Once done, make sure that your QuickBooks is updated to the latest release

Error: Verify Online Account Information: Invalid bank routing number --> Record = 52.

Error: Verify Online Account Information: Invalid bank routing number --> Record = 53.

Following the above repair steps and Deactivating the Bank Feed I was able to fix the corrupt routing info.

Just got off phone with support and short of paying for additional support to fix the problem, I was told that if I upgrade from the QB Pro 2018 to QB Pro 2020, there is a 200% chance that it will fix the problem.

 

Wonder if the problem presented itself for that reason...to upgrade.

 

Not a big deal since I have to upgrade this year anyway for payroll purposes. Just didn't want to do it in the middle of January when trying to tie up all the year end payroll reports for all of my clients.

Hello there, RJS of Tampa.

 

Let's fix the error 194 so you'll be able to back up your company file and continue using the newest version of QuickBooks Desktop Pro (2020).

 

Rebuilding your company data is a good thing to do since it'll fix issues with your company file. However, I suggest deactivating and reactivating your bank feeds to remove the error.

 

Before deactivating Bank Feeds, make sure you match or delete all of the downloaded transactions in your account. Once done, follow these steps to deactivate:

  1. Go to the Lists menu.
  2. Select Chart of Accounts.
  3. Right-click the account you want to deactivate, then select Edit Account.
  4. Go to the Bank Settings tab, then select Deactivate all online services.
  5. Click OK to confirm.
  6. Select Save & Close.

Right after the process, please close and re-open QuickBooks to implement the update.

 

After that, you can now re-connect your Bank Feeds.

  1. Go to the Lists menu.
  2. Select Chart of Accounts.
  3. Right-click the account you want to activate, then select Edit Account.
  4. In the Edit Account window, click the Set Up Bank Feeds button.
  5. Enter and select the name of your bank.
  6. Connect your bank depending on the methods available (Direct Connect or Web Connect).
  7. Select the Select existing or Create new drop-down arrow in the Link your Accounts window.
  8. Find the account you want to link
  9. Select Connect, then Close.

In case you still encounter the error after performing the steps above, kindly refer to this article to solve common QuickBooks Desktop online banking setup and connection error: Bank Feeds errors in QuickBooks Desktop. It also contains steps on how to resolve issues when downloading or importing your transactions.

 

You can also wait for an update from our Customer Service Team to fix the issue.

 

Please let me know if you have other concerns. I'm just around to help.
