I'll help you get this error sorted out, jason-daily.

 

It's possible that a data damage is causing this error in your items. We can do the Verify and Rebuild option.to fix the minor data issues. Before doing so, let's make sure that your QuickBooks Desktop is updated to the latest release. Please check out this article for the instructions: Update QuickBooks to the latest release.

 

Then, follow these steps to Verify and Rebuild Data:

 

  1. Go to File > Utilities > Rebuild Data.
  2. When prompted to backup select OK. Then, follow the onscreen instructions to create and save a backup copy.
  3. Let the tool repair your file. It may take some time. QuickBooks may seem stuck, but as long as you can move your mouse, the tool is working.
  4. Click OK, when it is finished.
  5. Go back to File > Utilities > Verify Data.
  6. Let the tool check your file for data issues.

If there are no issues, you can select OK. This also means that you don't have any data damage. Then, go check on the item list.

 

I'm also adding this article for the additional troubleshooting steps: Fix data damage on your QuickBooks Desktop company file.

 

Please let me know of the result. I'm just a post away if you need more help. Thanks.
