Customer List Transfer Causes QuickBooks Unrecoverable Error
This error usually occurs with customers with Ship To Addresses. We don't know why it crashes and we have notified Intuit of the issue. It appears to happen when you add a Ship To Address and you leave the name of the address to "Ship to 1" or some other number. There is a work around to get your customer ship to address list imported or you can delete them.
Review the videos below as there are two choices:
1. You can remove the Ship To Addresses and they will not import and they will have to be manually recreated. View this first video to get the details of what is happening and how to delete Ship to Addresses.
