Errors: X field records could not be read

Logging into the file, viewing or editing a sales form, or running the file utilities, QuickBooks Desktop displays one of the following errors:

  • # of fields could not be read.
  • C=291
  • [#] of field record(s) could not be read. This may be because the template type used to store this template is different from the template type being used to read it.
Why this is happening
