Re: Data will not verify in Desktop for Mac. How do I fix data?

Welcome to the Community, @GSB.


I’m here to walk you through the steps in rebuilding your company file in QuickBooks Desktop for Mac.


Before we begin, may I know what specific error you encounter when verifying data? Knowing a few more details will ensure I provide the correct resolution.


In the meantime, let’s run the Rebuild Data utility tool to resolve data damage on your company file. Here’s how:
1.    Go to the File menu.
2.    Select Utilities, then Rebuild Data.
3.    Click OK on the QuickBooks Information window. 
4.    Follow the prompt to save a backup.
5.    Hit OK when you see Rebuild has completed.


Once done, run the Verify Data utility tool to make sure there is no problem with your file. To do that, follow the steps below:
1.    Go to the File menu.
2.    Select Utilities and Verify Data.
3.    Click OK if you see QuickBooks detected no problem with your data and continue using your file.
4.    If Verify finds an issue with your data, you’ll be prompted to Rebuild Now or View Errors.
5.    Hit Close.
