Error: Excel could not open the data file

Sending report to Excel provides an error message in Excel that states "Excel could not open the data file".

Why this is happening

The computer always keep a log of all events (including errors) into the register. It sometimes remembers the error and fails to execute some functions.

How to fix it
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Open QuickBooks.
  3. Access the report and send to Excel.

Reboot your computer regularly to prevent further issues from occurring on your system.
