List Element in Use

The error message itself is usually accompanied by a customer/vendor/employee name to indicate which record in particular it is having trouble posting a transaction for.

Cause of Error:

The error message indicates that the customer/vendor/employee record that ESC is attempting to post transactions to is being used by QuickBooks already. It could be that another user in the office is performing a task that also involves this particular record or has that entity's record open for editing.


This is not an error that requires 'fixing'. Simply wait for the QuickBooks program to complete other tasks involving this entity. Once the record is no longer in use in other parts of the program, QuickBooks will allow the information to be posted over.
