    Rename the .ND and .TLG files
    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'll see these errors when you open your QuickBooks files. Renaming these files won't cause you to lose QuickBooks data. QuickBooks recreates these files when you rescan with the QuickBooks Database Server Manager and when you open your company file.

    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 and select Rename. Add the word OLD at the end of each file name.
    Example: company_file.qbw.nd.OLD
    Open QuickBooks again and try to sign in to your company file.

    Hope You Find This Useful,
