none of the solutions work.
We are trying to send the changes to client, not bringing changes into the file.
all it says is "QuickBooks is unable to display the accountant's changes, please contact technical support for more help"
if the changes can't be displayed, we cannot send them, accept them or anything....
I appreciate taking the time to follow the solutions above, Vab0103.
I'll also share some steps to fix the error. You can follow the first solution on how to repair your company file using the Verify and Rebuild Data tool here: Fix data damage on your QuickBooks Desktop company file.
Once done, try using the Accountant's Copy in a test file. This is to check if the problem is caused by a damaged QuickBooks installer or possible data integrity issues.
If the process is successful, then the program is working as designed, and you have to enter the changes manually. Otherwise, do a QuickBooks Desktop clean install.
You can find the information under Solution 4 and 5 in this article: Resolve errors and unexpected results when importing accountant's changes.

This is happening to me too! Did anyone have a fix for it?
I am trying to send accountants changes Back to my client and an error pops up that says the accountants changes cannot be viewed. Contact customer support. Again... I have an accountants copy that I am working in and have made changes. I want to send those changes back to my client and I get this error.
I cannot use the help menu in QB because I am in an accountants copy. I cannot do any of the repairs because I am in an accountants copy. If I change it to a company file to repair it, I wont be able to send the changes back to my client.
Thanks for letting us know, MRC-1.
