QuickBooks was initially launched as accounting software for the small business owners, who does not have proper accounting knowledge. Soon it was a hit among entrepreneurs and small business houses, who can not afford professional accountants. Being much advanced since its advent, now the software is widely used as a true professional accounting software with double-entry accounting functions and full audit trail capabilities. But, like any other software application, there are times, when QuickBooks gets corrupt and all the data in it becomes inaccessible. As it is quite clear that no organization can afford to lose its important financial information, there are many QuickBooks repair software available in the current market, which can help recovering the QuickBooks file.
If the QuickBooks file has been corrupt and you are trying to access it, QuickBooks flashes various error messages on the screen. One such error message can be written as below:
“An error occurs when QuickBooks tried to access the company file (-6189, -816)”
There can be a number of possible reasons behind the occurrence of the above error. But, usually the contradiction with some installed encryption software lead to the corruption of the QuickBooks file.
