The effective solutions for this company file error in QuickBooks are given below-

Solution 1- Rename the Network Descriptor (.nd) file and recreate it using Database Server Manager

The network descriptor file is essential for QuickBooks to access a file in a multi-user mode environment. The file stores information about the data source and the systems authorized to use the multi-user network. You’ll face difficulty accessing your company file hosted in a network if the .nd file gets damaged and stops functioning. Your QB data remains unaffected, and you can recreate the file by renaming it and then registering it on the network using Database Server Manager. Apply the steps underneath-

1. Search for QuickBooks, right-click its icon, and select Open file location.
2. Find a file with the name of your data file and extension .nd.
3. Right-click on the network descriptor (.nd) file and select Rename.
4. Add ‘.old’ to the file name and save it.
5. Run QuickBooks Database Server Manager and go to the Scan folders tab.
6. Choose the folder in which you renamed the file and click Start Scan.
7. Let the scan complete, and then try to access your company file in QuickBooks.

If the error develops again, try the next solution.

Solution 2- Fix the damaged company file

Another reason for this error interrupting you can be a damaged company file, which is unusable for the software. You can use the QuickBooks tool hub to repair the file and make it readable for the software again. Follow these steps-

  1. Launch the QuickBooks tool hub after rebooting your system.
