A Simple Fix
Sometimes an export of data from Fishbowl to QuickBooks can freeze up. When this happens, all you need to do is go onto the Fishbowl Server computer and follow the instructions in this video.
First, open the Windows Task Manager and then end several processes, including the Fishbowl Client, Server and Nexus, plus the QuickBooks company file. That way, you’ll be able to start fresh. Pretty simple.
