Re: Exporting to Excel Issues

Hello kfrem,


Thank you for getting back to us. Allow me to join the thread and help provide additional troubleshooting for this strange behavior in QuickBooks Desktop.


First, let's check if you can make it work by removing the worksheet protection within the Excel program. For the detailed steps, please visit the Microsoft support article below:


Change or remove workbook passwords.


I also recommend creating a sample file and export payroll data to Excel to determine if the problem is company file related. If you're able to export successfully, we'll need to get back and run the Verify and Rebuild data feature to fix any data damage.


To verify data:


  1. Click the File tab at the top menu bar.
  2. Select Utilities.
  3. Click Verify Data.

After following the steps above, you can proceed with resolving any data issues the Verify Data finds. Here are the steps:


  1. Click the File tab at the top menu bar.
  2. Select Utilities.
  3. Click Rebuild Data.


For additional reference about the Verify/Rebuild process, I'm adding the article I recommend on this:


Verify and Rebuild Data in QuickBooks Desktop.


I look forward to serving you to the best of my ability so feel free to post your response regarding the troubleshooting results. The Community is always here to help.
