ADMIN password should be
written down and saved in an obvious place (obvious to you, not to people who
may sit at your desk!).
ALWAYS add a user (that
can be used as a “backdoor” into QuickBooks just in case the ADMIN password
For my clients, I always
put my name in as a user with my personal password that nobody at the client’s
office knows. I give myself access to ALL AREAS OF QUICKBOOKS, just like the
Administrator’s. This way, the business can still run their books (all they
have to do is call me and say I FORGOT MY PASSWORD).
Another suggestion is to
have them to give me their Administrator password that they setup and I can keep
it on file off premises for them. This
works very well, because you need ADMINISTRATOR password to do special things.
FINAL SOLUTION – send
the file to QuickBooks; pay the fee and wait several days for them to send it
back. BE SURE TO MAKE A BACKUP COPY FIRST.
