If you are facing an issue like “QuickBooks search not working” then you would need to update your accounting program. By asking you to update the search function, we mean that you will have to update your index.
It is on the basis of the index function that you see relevant items in your search. To do this you will have to locate the file with an extension .QBW. Now refresh the file called Name.Qbw.SearchIndex. Once you do that your QuickBooks search index file will be updated.
