How to fix QuickBooks Error 59

Last night, I tried to log on to the QuickBooks file on the server. Every time I got the error code 59. What is this error? I can copy the file to my desktop and able to open it but unable to open the file from the server. Can anyone fix this issue?

Solution 1: Re create and delete .ND file

To create .ND(network descriptor) file, you have to scan the folder where the company file stored. The network descriptor collects information about your computer.

  • Click on Windows, and type QuickBooks Database Service Manager
  • Select QuickBooks Database Service Manager > then click on Add New Folder and
  • search the folder storing the company file.
  • When all required folders added click on Scan
  • Data files appear under the QuickBooks company file which has searched.
  • click on close
  • Please make sure .Band file must be created for each company data file.

Solution 2: Open company file using UNC Path

  • Open the QuickBooks
  • Choose the file and click to Open or restore company
  • Select the option open the company file and click on next
  • Hot My network places from the left side of the opened company file
  • Double click on Entire Network and select the location where the company file is stored.
  • Click on company file and then Hit Open

I Hope, this solution may help you. If still getting error then go to the next

Solution 3: Installation Wizard

  • Take a backup of your company file
  • Restart the computer to close all unwanted programs.
  • When the computer starts goto the Control panel
  • Then, go for programs and features.
  • Select Uninstall a program
  • Search for QuickBooks and click on Uninstall/Change
  • Click on Continue
  • Choose the Repair option and hit the Next button, you must wait to complete the repair process.
  • When repair finished clicking on Finish and then once again restart the computer.
  • Then, download the latest QuickBooks releases and payroll tax table.

I Hope, this solution can fix the issue of error 50 on QuickBooks.
