Error 61 QuickBooks occurs due to different reasons such as .QBW file is damage, a corrupted .ND or .TLG file or your system is infected with virus or malware. You can resolve QuickBooks error 61 in different ways. Firstly, launch QuickBooks, go to the File tab, click utilities, and hit rebuild data. If a dialogue box appears saying backup your company file, click ok. Once the rebuild has completed notification message appears on the screen, click ok and the problem should be resolved. You may also try updating the company file to a new version in order to avoid such errors in the future.

Efficacious Solutions to Fix QuickBooks Error 61 in 4 Ways
Follow the instructions noted below one-by-one to get the error code 61 eradicated completely from your QuickBooks. Let’s begin the troubleshooting process:

Solution 1: Use QuickBooks Rebuild Data
Go through the below-given steps:

Go to the File menu, select Utilities and click on Rebuild Data
If you get a notification to back up your company file, then click OK button
Wait for a couple of second until the message “QuickBooks is not responding” is displaying on the screen
Now, click “OK” after getting a message “Rebuild has completed”
Now, you can frequently use QuickBooks for managing your company data. But in case, you are yet experiencing the same error code, then continue to the next method.

Solution 2:

Re-sort the Chart of the Account list
Go to the QuickBooks Desktop menu bar and then select the Lists and Chart of Accounts
Now, give a check-mark to the option “Include Inactive” checkbox which is at the bottom
In the menu bar, click on View and select the Re-sort List
Click OK button when you receive a message saying “Are you sure you want to return this list to its original order?”
Next, verify the Company file
If the error yet exists, then continue to the next step
Create a new account and merge it with a damaged account
Now, open the file and check if the issue resolves
Continue to the next solution, if yet facing the same problem.

I hope both the solutions will be useful to resolve QuickBooks error 61 successfully.
