QB Issue Resolution:

QuickBooks can handle transaction volume for most small- to medium-size businesses. However, there are certain limitations.

To maintain the performance of your system, lists in QuickBooks can have only a certain number of items in them.

How to find out how close you are to the maximums

The total numbers of customers, items, and names in your company data file are shown in the Product Information window. To open it, press the F2 key.

Maximum number of transactions

QuickBooks can handle a maximum of 2 billion transactions. Typically, the maximum is limited more by your computer’s hard disk space than by QuickBooks.
