    How do I find out what release number my software is on in quick books premier 2013

    • Alicia says:

      Hi Bill,

      Thanks for taking a look at our post. There are a few ways to get this information. The easiest when you are in QuickBooks is to hit the F2 key. A splash screen will appear with quite a bit of information on it. At the very top, next to the product information you will find the release #.

    I have a client that has been experiencing several issues:

    they are using QB Enterprise 2013 (QuickBooks had them roll back their release due to errors)

    Tried to change price and u/m and received error code: 14911-79100
    Balance Sheet was out of balance
    Tried to do a validate/rebuild and it would not let us proceed.
    We had to fix negative inventory and duplicate items. Also U/M was corrupt (according to the logs)
    Still not running smooth like we thought.
    They are running the advance inventory module.

    Any suggestions?

      Hi Geri,

      It sounds like you have done all the preliminary stuff we would. Verify/rebuild, checking the error log. At this point if you addressed all the issues that are showing up on the error log and the rebuild is still failing, there is not much more that can be done. Your only option at this point is to send the file to Data Services ( The process is a bit time consuming (maybe an hour or so total) but if you get a fixed product in the end it’s worth it.

      Sorry we couldn’t offer the magic bullet on this.
