"Quickbooks is unable to display the accountant's changes, please contact Intuit technical support for more help" How can I fix this??

I am receiving this error when I am trying to send my accountant's changes back to a client?



Hi there, vanflores77.

Let me help get rid of this error when sending accountant's changes in QuickBooks Desktop.

Before we proceed, make sure to update QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release to ensure you have all the critical updates needed by the program.

First, let’s perform basic troubleshooting steps by clearing the browser history. Let me show you how:

If you’re using Firefox:

  1. Click the Menu button.
  2. Choose Options.
  3. Select the Privacy panel.
  4. In the History section, set Firefox will to Use custom settings for history.
  5. Check the box for Clear history when Firefox closes.
  6. Click Settings.
  7. In the Settings for Clearing History window, put a check mark next to Cache.
  8. Click OK.

If you're using another browser, click here https://community.intuit.com/articles/1145697 for the steps.

Second, remove special characters in the Chart of Accounts.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to Lists menu, then select Char of Accounts.
  2. Right-click the account, then click Edit Account.
  3. Click Save & Close.

Then, re-convert the Accountant’s copy (.QBX) and re-enter the changes:

  1. Go to the File menu, then select Open or Restore a Company.
  2. Click Convert an Accountant’s Copy Transfer File, then click Next.
  3. Select the .QBX, then click Open.
  4. Choose where you want to save the file
  5. Select a different location from the original .QBA file.
  6. Re-enter the changes to the new Accountant’s Copy working file (.QBA).
  7. Export the Accountant’s Changes.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
