Before starting the Validate
& Repair process, you should copy your current data file
within Quicken, and use that copied file in the validation
The Copy steps are:
Select: “File” > ”File
Operations” > “Copy...”
In the Pop-Up make sure
all info is correct and all boxes are checked, then click “OK”.
If the “Copy” process
fails, it would likely be caused by a corrupt file. You can then try to bypass
the corruption by holding down both the “Ctrl” and “Shift” Keys while
performing step 1) immediately above.
If you are asked
"Ignore errors that prevent file copy?" click on
"Yes". (However you should know that doing this could cause
data to be deleted.)
The “Validate & Repair” File steps
Select: “File” >
”File Operations” > “Validate and Repair...”
Make sure that the
“File to validate and repair” is the new Copy you made above.
Read the “warnings” and
check the boxes accordingly. (I suggest
you click” “Validate file”, “Rebuild investing lots”, “Correct investing price
history” and “Repair”)
Once the Validate & Repair
process finishes, review the output and correct
any reported errors that the process did not repair.
Let me know how that goes.
