Rename the .ND and .TLG files and run the Database Server Manager from the QuickBooks Tools Hub
The .ND and .TLG files are part of your QuickBooks files. These are configuration files that allow QuickBooks to access a company file in a network or multi-user environment.

If these files are corrupted or damaged, you will encounter these errors when you open your QuickBooks files. Renaming these files will not cause you to lose QuickBooks data. These files are automatically re-created when you rescan using the QuickBooks Database Server Manager and when you open your company file.

Step 1: Rename the .ND and .TLG files
Open the folder that contains your company file.
Find the files with the same file name as your company files but with extensions .ND and .TLG.
Right-click each file, then select rename. Add the word OLD at the end of each file name. Ex: company_file.qbw.nd.OLD
Step 2: Run the QuickBooks Database Server Manager from the QuickBooks Tools Hub
The purpose of Database Server Manager is to host your QuickBooks company files. It is best to restart the DBSM and rescan the QuickBooks files after you rename the .ND and .TLG files.

From the QuickBooks Tools Hub, (Download in Solution 2) run the QuickBooks Database Server Manager.

In the tools hub, select Network Issues.
Select Quickbase Database Server Manager. You’ll be asked to install QuickBooks on your server if it isn’t already installed.
Inside the QuickBooks Database Server Manager, Select Start Scan if you see your company file(s).  If you don't, Browse to the location of your company file and then select Start Scan.
Open QuickBooks again and try to sign in to your company file. If the same issue occurs, proceed to solution 3.
Solution 3: Open a sample company file locally installed on a workstation
By opening a sample company file, you are testing if the problem possibly lies with your company file or the QuickBooks application. If a sample company file does not open and instead returns an error, it is an indication that the QuickBooks installation is damaged and should be repaired.

In the No Company Open window, select Open a Sample File, then choose from the list of sample company files.
If the sample file opens, proceed to solution 4. If the sample file returns the same error message, repair your QuickBooks installation.
Solution 4: Open the company file locally
By opening the file locally, you are testing if there is a problem with the location of the company file. If the file opens while it is saved on the desktop, it means the location is probably damaged or it is "too deep", it exceeded the file system path limitation. If the file still did not open after changing it's location, it is possible the file is damaged.

Open the folder that contains your company file.
Find the file with the extension of .QBW.
Right-click the file, then select Copy.
Go to desktop, right-click on the desktop, then select Paste.
While holding down the control key, open QuickBooks so you are directed to the No Company Open window.
Select Open or restore an existing company. Navigate to the desktop, find the company file you copied and open.
If you are still getting the same error, please proceed to solution 5.
Solution 5: Close all QuickBooks processes
Log in as the Administrator on the server computer.
Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to bring up the task manager.
Show processes for all users by selecting the Users tab.
Highlight each QuickBooks process (QBW32.EXE, qbupdate.exe, and QBDBMgr.exe), then select End Task.
Open the company file in multi-user mode.
If the error still appears, proceed to solution 6.
Solution 6: Check the folder permission manually
You may encounter these errors if the folder where the file is saved does not have the right permission. Check your folder permissions to share company files. Try to open your file again. If you are still getting the same error, proceed to solution 7.
Solution 7: Configure firewall ports and Anti-Virus Software
You may also encounter errors if your firewall and anti-virus program block access to specific QuickBooks programs or files. It is best to configure your firewall ports and to set up an exception to your anti-virus software.
