Error Codes – C =
• C=1 For example, M=1028, L=1743, C=1,V=0 , in QuickBooks V5.0/R4, after a backup and restore to a new system. This may involve non-standard video settings.
• C=3 According to one report this means the program is unable to open a Quicken file on a Mac. This should happen only on Mac versions. Free up HD space. Reopen and close the file using Quicken for the Mac. Then try again. However, a second source says this relates to QB having a full or nearly full hard drive.
• C=9 Unable to read from an auxiliary file at the OS file system level. Copy the data file to another disk or drive. Possible damaged disk.
• C=10 Unable to write to an auxiliary file at the OS file system level. Should only happen during backup/restore, export, mail merge or other operation which write to a data file. Free up hard disk space and try again. Possible damaged disk.
Unable to delete a transaction, because it is incomplete (probably data error). Happens during Condense Data and will require manual repair of the database.
QB is trying to close a data file while the program thinks it is in the middle of recording a transaction, but probably isn’t. Check to see that the last data you recorded is still in the file. Get the latest release of QB for your version. Moving data, reinstalling, and rebuilding has no effect on this.
Also Error -35. The file was used in a newer version of QB and cannot be used in an older one. Each new version (and some Releases) of QB has an updated data structure. QB files cannot be used after conversion in a new version of the program. (not used since version 4.0).
• C=38 Unknown, but related to backup, as in V7.0D R1 (M=1352 L=968 C=38 V=30 (FFFFFFE2)
• C=43 Error reading a transaction or memorized transaction. This can be caused when QB is trying to navigate a report or report-like data, or by data damage. If restarting QB and repeating the action causes the error again, it is probably damaged data. Then rebuild. C=43 also occurs when printing 1099 and W2 forms (V6.OD R1 [M=1477, L5203, C=43, V=2(2)). If the font looks like Russian letters it often relates to losing the OCR-A font is by installing TurboTax (also from Intuit). You must delete all OCR-A fonts and reinstall QB.
• C=44 Error writing a transaction. Possible data damage or out of memory. Restart Windows and try again. If error persists you may need our data repair services.
Trying to remove a transaction from a report or report like feature. Trying to locate a transaction that has been modified, but could not find it. Harmless. Close all windows and continue.If this does not work, Contact us.
Appeared in QB 3.0 and was described as a benign error (keep going) or: exit QB, exit Windows, and start again; verify in release 7 or later; or Rebuild data.
Some entry in a list should be deleted, but for some reason was not deleted. Rebuild data may be tried, but don’t expect much. If it does not work, Restore last backup. If you get this on a regular basis it may be time to contact our file repair service.
• C=55, C=64 The network temporarily went down. It then probably came back before it was noticed, except for QB, which cannot handle that.
Error writing to the QB file on the QB file level. Rebuild. If the problem persists try to free memory and try again.
Benign error ( keep working).
• C=184 Unexpected Error – February report days mismatch (28 & 29)
Appears in files with Error C=53 (also Error 210, -210)
File has been used in later version. Comment at C=32.
• C=224 QB tried to read an invalid split line for a transaction or memorized transaction. The data file may be damaged or QB may be confused. Delete the first split transaction error, in the QBWIN.LOG file.
• C=225, C=260, C=265
Try Rebuild. If that does not work, Contact us and allow us to do a Free Evaluation of the database.
QB could not create an image (.qbi) file, due to lack of disk space or network limitations. QB creates this file when a company file is opened and deletes it when the file is closed.
Assertion failed miscellaneous error. The program should not be here and is not sure what to do. It is used lots of places so it is hard to say how bad it is or what is the root cause. If you get it in list activities or reports it indicates a list problem. Try to Re-sort the list. It also can be low memory or conflicts with other programs. Shut down other programs & see if problems disappear. This error appears in older versions of QB and Windows.
If all else fails you may need a file repair
Memory is too full to send any other message. See C=47.
