All QuickBooks Error relating to the -6000 series are related to the company file. The QuickBooks Error code -6000, -832 implies some problem with the .ND file or there can be an issue with your hosting. Usually users who host their company file on a separate system or server face this error. To start fixing this error, follow the methods provided below:
Steps to fix QuickBooks Error 6000 832
Setup configuration files
Both .ND and .TLG files are configuration files and are used for storing preferences and settings set by the user. These files are rendered by QB everytime it starts. These files precisely deal with the preferences and settings regarding the multi-user mode in QB or networking.
If these files cannot be read properly, you’ll get QuickBooks error code -6000 -832. The good thing about this is that even if you rename or delete these files, QB will recreate them when it starts. So this is precisely what we’ll do in order to check the underlying issue that is causing this error.
- Go to the folder in which your QB company file is stored
- Find files with .ND and .TLG extensions
- Rename these files and add an OLD in front of them so that they’re not replaced when a new file is created.
- Restart and check whether you’re getting QuickBooks error 6000 832.
Most probably, if the error was related to the configuration files, then renaming them should solve the issue. If the error does not go away, then the issue might be with hosting and network connection or the company file itself.
Correct Hosting Settings
We need to check if the hosting settings configured for your QB are correct or not. If you’ve hosted the company file on another system or server, then the hosting settings must be turned on otherwise. To check for the status of the hosting settings, press F2 after selecting the QB window.
A new window will appear and display the Local Server Information. Here you should check whether or not the hosting settings for your QB are relevant or not.
You can even create a sample company file to check if the issue is related to your connection. To do so, follow these steps:
