Resolve message that company file is in use

QuickBooks assists you in moving your company files out of the Program Files folder to the recommended location of C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\(Shared) Documents\Intuit\QuickBooks\Company Files.

This message appears because a company file (or an associated file) being moved is in use.

To resolve this message:

  1. Verify that no other user has this company file open.

  2. Close and reopen QuickBooks.

  3. Try to open the company file again to open the Move Company File window.

QuickBooks should now be able to move the company file.
