Qbwin.log: Verify Time Record: Invalid Project

The following message appears in the Qbwin.log file:

Verify Time Record: Invalid Project. Rcrd=(##########). Ref = (#####)
A QuickBooks time record points to a non-existent class.
Each class in the Class list has its own reference number, which is attached to any transaction that has this class. If a problem occurs in the data file and a reference number is changed, the transaction's reference number points to a class that does not exist. In this case, the Verify enters the above message in the QBWin.log file.
How to fix it

Edit the Class List and add enough "dummy" classes to re-link the transactions to a class.
Note: If a transaction's reference number in the log is a negative number or a very large number (above 10,000), this method will not be useful. (Normal reference numbers in the Class list range from 1 to 10,000.)

  1. Add enough dummy entries to the Class List (Test1, Test2 and so on), until there are more classes than the stray reference number. For example, if the reference number is 25, and there are 10 classes currently on the list, add at least 16 more classes.
  2. From the File menu, select Utilities > Verify Data.
  3. Check the QBWin.log file.
  4. If the message persists, add several more classes and Verify Data again.
  5. If the message is gone, delete the added classes. Any class that cannot be deleted will contain the transaction with the stray reference number.
  6. From the Reports menu, select Jobs, Time and Mileage > Time by Job Detail. The Time by Job Details window opens
  7. Click the Customize button.
  8. On the Display tab, select the Class column to add it to the report.
  9. Click the Filters tab and under Choose Filter, select Class. Filter the report for the class that would not delete and click OK.
  10. Edit each transaction to replace the class with the correct class.
