Solved- For me at least.

I uninstalled my antivirus software, Cylance, and the issue went away. Turns out it was blocking the script running in Excel.

This issue is still on going, have upgraded to Office 2019, have updated QB.  Our treasurer still can not export his tax forms, still receiving the Error 429 ActiveX.  Please some one FIX this issue.

Hello all! I managed to fix this today. User was running Windows 10. 
Quickbooks is on 32 bit, the user's Excel was on 64 bit. 

I uninstalled 64 bit and installed 32 bit version of Office.

This resolved the user's issue instantly.

Were you able to find a better work around for Cylance? I would rather keep script blocking on and just allow this thru somehow.

 

Thanks!

Hi @Jess42,

 

As stated in the post of my colleague above, this specific issue has an ongoing investigation. 

 

The workaround available is to use the 32-bit version of Microsoft Office. Also, if you haven't contacted our Technical Support team yet, then that's what I can suggest. They can add you to the list of our affected users. With that, you'll receive notification emails whenever an update is available. 

 

Here's how:

  1. On your QuickBooks homepage, go to the Help menu.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Tap the Contact us button.

Do you have other questions? Post them below, and I'll be sure to get back to you.
