I have been using QuickBooks for many years now, I have 4 computers and all of them QuickBooks in multi user mode. I have a staff of 3 employees and if one of them is not occupied and because of technical issues not able to work on QuickBooks, it is a great loss for me. Yesterday I was working on QuickBooks and one of my employees came to me and reported the QuickBooks error h202. I had no idea why this error is occurring on her computer as everybody including me is able to work on QuickBooks just fine. I have never faced such issues before so I decided to find out more about this error and searched How to fix QuickBooks Error h202 is Google search. There were many articles and none had the correct information and I got real confused about how can I resolve QuickBooks error h202. I am so frustrated that I want to quit using QuickBooks, but I have years of data and don’t want to lose anything, I need immediate help.
