There is an error that has been around for several years, and it still pops up from time to time.

some sales orders or estimates may be incorrectly marked

The error usually shows up when verifying company data.

Sometimes it will appear when you verify, but rebuild reports no problems. It doesn’t usually affect day-to-day operations in QuickBooks. I’ve heard one report that it may be caused under certain conditions when a sales order is only partially invoiced out (any confirmation on that from anyone?)

Even though it doesn’t seem to affect day-to-day operations, a lot of people don’t like their company to NOT verify. For one thing, you can’t make a fully verified backup if your data has this condition.

So if you are getting this error and want to resolve it, it can be resolved. It basically involves fixing one or more damaged sales orders or estimate records in your file:

1. You can locate and fix the damaged sales orders or estimates yourself. Do this by following the steps in this Intuit knowledgebase article.

2. If that doesn’t work, or you don’t want to mess with the technical details, we can repair your database for you on a turnkey basis.

Have you run into this error? When or how did it come about? We’re curious about what might trigger it.
