Brandon, MB -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2019 -- Target Chaining errors are normally seen after attempting to rebuild your company file in QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise.
The QBWIN.log (QuickBooks log files) displays errors such Verify.c (4620) : CHECKPOINT: 1104: Thu Jul 14 15:36:39 Target Chaining: Target ###### in transaction ######, points to 'next' target ###### which is NOT in that transaction or Verify.c (4747) : CHECKPOINT: 3544: Fri Jul 01 11:25:45 Target Chaining: Next target pointer error in transaction #####
Sometimes, you may also get an Unrecoverable Error message.
Common reasons for this error include large data file size, slow network and insufficient RAM space. "What you would most likely detect are unlinked bills and payments along with the unnamed corresponding payments," E-Tech's John Rocha said.
Intuit does specify that the issue of target chaining cannot be repaired solely by rebuilding the data file. They do reiterate, however, that if the problem-causing files can be modified or deleted, there could be a solution.
Proposed methods to fix this error include running "Rebuild" and waiting for the rebuild to finish. Then Run Verify to ensure there are no additional errors.
If this does not solve the issue, Intuit recommends restoring a backup created prior to the Rebuild that resulted to the Target Chaining error. Intuit goes on to say that if you are not sure which backup to restore, open the company file and press F2 (or Ctrl+1) on your keyboard to bring up the Product Information screen. In the Versions used on File section and check the RB date.
