Quickbooks Stale Object Error


I receive an error message similiar to "Stale Object Error : You and *somebody else* were working on this at the same time. *somebody else* finished before you did, so your work was not saved." when exporting stock items to Quickbooks where they already exist in Quickbooks. What can I do to resolve this?


Unfortunately there is no solution to this error as it means that Quickbooks has 'locked' the record for edits. A simple workaround is to not export the stock item since it already exists.


To not export an item, simply mark it as exported by following the steps below:
  1. Green select the stock item in the Export grid.
  2. Click the orange Grid Actions menu and select Mark as Exported.


  1. The item(s) will now appear in the Exported grid but without a 'Verified' mark.
