What causes QuickBooks Error Code 61?

QuickBooks has been our accounting companion ever since the inception of our business. I had 4 bookkeepers in 10 years worked for me and all of them were exceptionally experienced. For the past couple of months come across QuickBooks Error 61 causing the balance sheet on accrual basis out of balance. Our CPA did company verify and rebuild as an automatic resolution of the problem and I did the magic. Unfortunately, ACCOUNT BALANCE “ERROR 61” occurs again and things seem to be messed up again. How do I permanently resolve this error? Thanks.
