  1. Great tips Shannon. The only tip I can add is to use quotes to search for a phrase, such as “an error occurred when QuickBooks tried to access the company file.” I use quotes frequently when searching for a resolution to error codes and messages.

  2. Go to Google.com, put in the username or phrase, and append “site:quickbooksusers.com” to the search.

    Under Search tools, you can filter by time or other parameters.
