We manage our sales orders between our customer service team and warehouse team using the Sales Order Fulfillment worksheet in Enterprise 20. There is an ongoing issue with the worksheet crashing and Quickbooks having to close as a result. Our company file is accesses through a server and the worksheet doesn't crash for all users. Any ideas what the issue is?
Hello there, Huzzy76.
Let me share some information on what to do to fix the worksheet crashes in QuickBooks Desktop.
I can see that you're informed about the investigation that was closed and fixed already by our product engineers. The Sales Order Fulfillment Worksheet may keep crashing if there are no transactions associated with the item.
On the other hand, if there's are transactions and there's no issue about it. We can try installing QuickBooks on the other computer and make sure to sign in as an admin user to access the worksheet without crashing. Here's a few steps on how to do it:
Once done, try to see if the worksheet is working. Also, it's important to review the system requirements to ensure that you're using an up-to-date one. If not, we suggest upgrading your operating system to a supported version before installing QuickBooks.
If the same thing happens, we have other recommended troubleshooting steps to fix it. We can try performing the possible solutions given by this article: QuickBooks Desktop Crashes When Exporting Report to Excel Worksheet.

Let me provide a few details about the supporting server in QuickBooks Desktop.
I appreciate you for letting me know the server you're currently running. However, the first thing we'll need to do is to comply with the system requirements in QuickBooks. This is to ensure that you'll get the best experience and prevent you from crashes or any issues while working on your book.
Using windows server 2008 may be the cause why the sales order fulfillment worksheet keeps crashing as it's no longer supported. I would suggest upgrading your operating system to the latest one to fix the sales order fulfillment worksheet from crashing.

We've completed the upgrade to the latest Windows operating system on the server. It hasn't seemed to make much of a difference. The fulfillment sheet is still causing Qb to crash. It happens when we refresh the sheet, which makes me think it something with the way it's syncing, or something connection related. Are there any specific requirements for using the fulfillment sheet in terms of internet connection or region?

We are crashing this "feature" non-stop as well. Pretty sure the issue is that we had 2 x test sales orders that were deleted and the worksheet still thinks they are in existence when they are gone. I have been told I have to stop using our file for 2-5 days while data services repairs the problem as there is nothing that can be done remotely. WORD OF ADVICE - NEVER DELETE A SALES ORDER if you are using this worksheet. Certainly appears to be a bug from where we are sitting. Advanced inventory functionality is becoming a very expensive service that we cannot actually use.....
Hello, I have the same problem here. I deleted a Sales Order when it was in the fulfillment worksheet (before it was shipped by my warehouse worker) and now the worksheet keeps crashing, from both the server and the workstation. Were you able to find a solution to that issue?
Thanks in advance
