Hello there, TomP3.
I appreciate you for trying out the recommended steps above. Allow me to provide additional troubleshooting option to resolve this issue with missing company file.
If you access QuickBooks file over the network, the first option would be to ping the server to ensure you are connected to the network.
1. Identify the name of your server computer.
2. Type ping [name of your server] then press Enter.
If you see a reply for each packet, it means your computer is connected to your network.
Should you need reference on the complete fix for missing company files, you can always check this article.
Let me know the results. I'm still here whenever you need help with something else.
