Resolve QuickBooks performance issues, Part 4, Manage your data file

If you are having issues with the performance of your QuickBooks installation, your company file may be the root cause. You have options you can use to resolve such issues.

Be sure that all QuickBooks installations, including the data manager on the host /server, are running the latest release of your current QuickBooks version. To update QuickBooks, from the menu bar, select Help and then choose Update QuickBooks.

If these solutions don't resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free. You can contact an agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.

Your company data file size

QuickBooks' performance decreases as the size of the company file increases. There are no actual limits on the size of your company data file, but performance may be hindered if your network is not capable of handling files that have:

  • More than 500 MB in Pro or Premier.
  • More than 1.5 GB in QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions.
  • More than seven years of transaction history.
