Verification Error

I get this error when running the verification function and there 1118 lines of errors:

!Link Error Code: 00200(HEX), UNKNOWN (0), linkRecNum = 700005, sibling = 700004, key (m1) = 699991, tOne = 699995, mTwo = 699997, tTwo = 699999  (full pdf of 1118 lines attached)


Anyone have an idea of where I can start looking to resolve this error?

It started in Quickbooks PRO 2019 on our MAC OS machine where we eventually couldn't import bank transactions and the download transactions program kept crashing - I then moved the quickbooks data to a windows 10 machine was able to import bank successfully and accept all transactions into quickbooks, however still not able to complete a successful verification; rebuild also returns same errors.


Basically would like to know whether these are a huge concern or if there are just missing links between historical transactions or whether this is an indication of serious data corruption.  If latter we will start a new company and keep current db for history.


Any help/insight to resolution is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Re: Verification Error

Hi falconerlf,


This error usually relates to a missing transaction link in your QuickBooks file. Constant rebuilding your company file fixes the link errors. Let me help you get through this.


Run the Rebuild Data Utility tool first, then Verify Data Utility, and then Rebuild Data again.

  1. Go to File.
  2. Click Utilities
  3. Click Rebuild Data.
  4. Click OK when you see Rebuild has completed.

After that, perform Verify Data Utility.

  1. Go to File.
  2. Click Utilities
  3. Click Verify Data. Click Rebuild Now when prompted.

Once done, please reboot your computer and check if you're still getting the error.
