I am using QB 2016 and trying to create an accountant's

Customer Question

I am using QB 2016 and trying to create an accountant's copy. I continue to receive the "failed"! error message. My data file is saved on a server and I have tried saving the accountant's copy to my desktop, but that does not work. I have done this before on previous versions, but not much luck with 2016.
JA: The Financial Software Technician will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the Financial Software Technician should know?
Customer: This is pretty much everything.

Hello and thank you for choosing


My name is ***** ***** the Expert who will be helping you.

The issue with QB 2016 and making an accountant copy with the data file/store on the server, and saving the copy locally (to the desktop) might have been changed in the new version of QB 2016.

Or it may just be a glitch, yet to be patched properly.

I am reviewing all the details and will reply back shortly.
