Solutions to Fix Quickbooks Error Code 6130
1: Renaming the .TLG and .ND files
- .TLG and .ND are configuration files that let QuickBooks access the company files while in multi-user mode. When these files are damaged, QuickBooks displays an error.
- Users must open the folder in QuickBooks containing the company file and look for files with the same name as the company file but with .TLG and .ND extensions.
- Now, users must right-click on every file and rename it by adding ‘OLD’ to the end of the file name.
- Once done, users must reopen QuickBooks and try to open the company file. If the error reoccurs, users must utilise the Auto Data Recovery to restore data.
2: Using QuickBooks Auto Data Recovery: Recovering Recent Transactions with the .QBW.adr File
Users must create a folder called ‘QBTest’ on the desktop and then open the folder containing the company file. Now, locate the ‘.tlg’ file, which has the same name as the company file.
A. File extensions
- If the ‘.tlg’ file can’t be identified, users must press Windows + E, which will open the ‘File Explorer’. Now, select ‘Organize’ and then ‘Folder and search options’. Widows 8/8.1/10 users must select ‘View’ and then ‘File name extension’.
- Next, choose ‘Hide extensions for known file types’, and then select ‘Apply’, followed by OK.
- Now, users must copy the ‘.tlg’ file of the company file and paste it in the ‘QBTest’ folder created earlier.
- Next, users must open the ‘QuickBooks Auto Data Recovery’ file that is in the same location as the company file. Now, the ‘.QBW.adr’ file must be copied and pasted in the ‘QBTest’ folder. Next, right-click on the ‘.QBW.adr’ file and choose ‘Rename’ and remove ‘.adr’ from the end of the file and reopen QuickBooks.
- Now, open the company file saved in the ‘QBTest’ flder and check that all the transactions are there using the account resgister.
- Next, users must choose ‘File’-> ‘Utilities’-> ‘Verify Data’. If the coy of the company file is fine, users can transfer the corrupted company file to another location and then transfer the copy file from the ‘QBTest’ folder to its original location.
B. Recovering Fresh Transactions
- This process uses the ADR version of the .QBW and .TLG files and recovers all except the last 12 hours of transactions.
- Create the ‘QBTest’ folder on the desktop and open folder containing the company folder and locate the ‘QuickBooks Auto Data Recovery’ folder.
- Now, locate the ‘.TLG.adr’ and ‘.QBW.adr’ files that have the same name as the company file.
- If you cannot identify the .TLG.adrand .QBW.adr files, perform the steps mentioned in ‘File extensions’ above.
- Next, the ‘.TLG.adr’ and ‘.QBW.adr’ files must be copied and pasted in the ‘QBTEst’ folder. Now, the ‘.adr’ must be removed from the end of each file name and QuickBooks opened.
- Now, users must open the company file saved in the ‘QBTest’ folder and use the account register to check if all the transactions are there. Then, users need to go to ‘File’-> ‘Utilites’-> ‘Verify Data’.
- In case the company file is working, the corrupted file can be shifted to another location and the copied file transferred from the ‘QBTest’ folder to its original location.
