2.       If your files are stored on a server, you'll need to reboot that, too.

3.       If the error still exists after trying that, try the next option.

Method 2: Set up QuickBooks Server Database Manager

The QuickBooks database server manager is where all of your company's data is stored and easily accessible through a simple download and installation process.

1.       Unlike other places, this one doesn't require a verification code.

2.       The installation of Database Manager does not necessitate a separate license.

3.       If no one is accessing your QuickBooks data, you should install the Database Manager.

4.       Your server needs to be restarted after the installation process.

5.       Select the Start Scan option under the QuickBooks Database Server Manager.

6.       To begin scanning, navigate to the location of your company file and click the scan button.

7. The database server management will automatically repair the Firewall permissions. When the scan is finished, click the Close button.

8.       After the installation is finished, reboot the server, and you're done.

Method 3: Verify that your data file is not located on a shared server.

1.       If you use QuickBooks, you shouldn't save your data on a network-attached storage (NAS) device or any other removable drive.

2.       The QuickBooks Database Server Manager is not authorized for use on these systems.

3.       This configuration can cause data corruption in some cases.

Method 4: Fix the error .tlg and .qbw files

1.       To do this, launch the system and inspect the relevant transaction log. The file will have a name nearly identical to the company's, with the addition of theā€”tlg extension.

2.       If you want to rename the file containing the log of transactions, right-click on it.

3.       The new format for the company file should look like company-name-old. tlg, with "old" appended after the name of the company.

4.       QuickBooks will automatically update.tlg files without user intervention.

5.       Try a system reboot to see if that resolves the error.
