This error indicates that you have the wrong company file is open in QuickBooks Desktop. To resolve, after taking the general troubleshooting steps outlined here, take the steps outlined in the error message:

  1. If you can see that the wrong company file is actually open in Quickbooks, go to QuickBooks and Select File > Open or Restore Company > [Company Name]. Once the correct company file is open, attempt to sync your policy again.
