    How do I find a clean file validation?????
    I'm beginning to believe the new company is in trouble because of all the updates that do nothing for me. I have been with Quicken going back to 2008.
    I think it's time to look around for a replacement program, not happy. CR

    By restoring progressively older backup files until you find one that Validates without error.

    If you haven't already, I suggest you perform the Copy and Validate Instructions as described in: https://www.quicken.com/support/advanced-data-file-troubleshooting-correct-problems-quicken-windows

    The QEL portion of the file is not critical; it stores download files data from FIs.  Your register data will be preserved unless there are errors you did not convey.

    If you don't have a clean recent backup, follow the steps in the data file troubleshooting link.
