Choose Rebuild and wait for the process to finish.
  3. If all of your data was successfully rebuilt, you can close QuickBooks and confirm that the data was correct by opening the Reports > Data Sources page and checking the data for all of your accounts. If there are any errors, you can fix them by clicking on the account name and editing the data.
