    Accountant's Changes Pending message

    Article ID: 1000853


    The message "Accountant's Changes Pending" appears at the top of your QuickBooks window to inform you that an accountant's copy of your company file has been created. An accountant's copy allows you to work on current transactions while the accountant works on transactions from previous fiscal periods. When your accountant finishes, you can import the accountant's changes into your company file.

    Although you can remove the message, this prevents you from importing the accountant's changes. However, you can still enter the changes manually.

    You have an active, up-to-date version of QuickBooks.
