Re: cannot locate the network

I'd like to help you find your company file, Frank Warner.


Follow these easy steps: 


Open your Computer folder and do a wildcard search for all of your company files. Type one of the following into the search bar. Make sure to include the asterisk (*) to ensure the search works correctly.

  • Working Files = *.qbw
  • Back Up Files = *.qbb
  • Accountants Copy Files = *.qba
  • Accountants Transfer Files = *.qbx
  • Accountants Change Files = *.qby

Once the file is found, take note of the file's location. However, if the file is not found, you'll want to contact an IT professional for them to help you locate your company file.
