Is anyone else having to wait an hour or longer for an accountants copy to open? I've noticed in the last few weeks and thought it might pass but it hasn't. Companies that I get copies of on a monthly basis that take maybe 15-20 minutes at the most to open are now taking 45-75 minutes. Am I the only one?
I have the steps you can perform to fix the delay when opening an accountant's copy, @009.
I've checked my resources, and there aren't any reported similar issues about this. Here are a few possible reasons you're taking 45-75 minutes to open an accountant's copy for your clients:
The QuickBooks version you're working on doesn't match with the one your client is using.
The file is too large.
Slow internet connection.
First, let's make sure to use the QuickBooks version your client used to create it when opening the accountant's copy. I'll guide you how.
Go to File from the top menu.
Select Toggle to Another Edition.
The Premier (or Enterprise Solutions) Accountant Edition - Home button should be grayed out. If not, select its radio button.
Second, let's ensure the client's file isn't greater than 200 MB or 200,000 KB. Just press the F2 key or Ctrl+1 to review their file sizes. Then, go to the File Size section in the File Information window. View the screenshot below for your visual reference.
Third, let's check your internet or Wifi router to confirm if we have a stable connection. This way, you'll be able to open the accountant's copy within 15-20 minutes.
Thanks for getting back to us and providing an update, @009.
