I am not sure if it is supposed to work like this or not. We have quickbooks enterprise 2017 on a quad core processor with 16gb of ram and 10 users. The new accountant we have keeps running reports that slow the server down so much that the other 9 users cannot use it. I am not sure what reports he is running but we never had this issue with the old accountant. Is it the type of report he is running? is he running them incorrectly? Anyone have any ideas?
I appreciate you for letting us know about your issue with running reports in QuickBooks Desktop.
Common issues with QuickBooks running slow typically occurs on larger company files. Though there are no limits on file size, but there may be an effect with the performance if your network is incapable of dealing with large files.
no that did not resolve my issue. did we read my question??? the database runs fine all day long. Until 1 user runs reports. This will slow down quickbooks so slow that you cant even enter orders in. we never had this issue until this user came on board. Is it the report he is running? is he not running the report correctly?? IE possibly limit results?? I am not sure I am the IT guy and not a quickbooks specialist.
