Solution 1- Configure the QuickBooks hosting settings

You can face trouble accessing your company file if the hosting settings aren’t configured correctly in your QuickBooks. Only the server computer should be allowed to run in multi-user mode and host the company file. Suppose a workstation starts running in multi-user mode. In that case, the company file will become inaccessible to all the other systems, and these error codes will flash on the screen whenever an attempt is made to open the company file. Do as per the steps below to avoid this problem while setting up the multi-user network-

  1. Approach the workstation that developed this error initially.
  2. Now you have to go to the File menu and select Utilities.
  3. Tap the Stop hosting multi-user access option.
  4. Use these steps on all the workstations to stop them from running in multi-user mode.
  5. Go to your server computer and open Utilities from the File menu.
  6. Select Host multi-user access from the available options.
  7. Reboot all the systems after configuring the hosting settings and reopen the company file.
