Methods to Troubleshoot QuickBooks Error 111

  • QuickBooks Error 111 can occur when there is an issue with the company file or the QuickBooks software itself. Here are some methods that you can try to troubleshoot the QuickBooks error 111.

    1.      Update the QuickBooks

    • Open QuickBooks and go to the Help menu.

    • Select "Update QuickBooks Desktop."

    • In the Update QuickBooks window, click on the "Update Now"

    • Check the boxes for the updates you want to download and click "Get Updates."

    2.      Rename the .ND and .TLG files

    The .ND and .TLG files are associated with QuickBooks company files and contain important data. It is not recommended to rename or delete these files unless you are experiencing specific issues with your QuickBooks software.

    However, if you still need to rename these files, you can follow these steps:

    • Close QuickBooks and make sure no one else is using the company file.

    • Open the folder containing the company file and locate the .ND and .TLG files. These files have the same name as the company file but with different extensions.

    • Right-click on each file and select "Rename".

    • Change the file extension from .ND to .ND.old and from .TLG to .TLG.old.

    • Press Enter to save the new file names.
