This article describes QuickBooks Script Error and how it can be solved. Script errors occur in QuickBooks if there are problems while executing commands when QuickBooks applications on the user’s computer attempt to access an online feature. Script errors could also occur when applications like Java or Flash interact with QuickBooks’ Online Service Center and QuickBooks Online, as well as QuickBooks Pro, Premier, etc.
Generally, the errors are displayed as ‘Script Error’ or ‘Error in Script’. But the error scan also be shown in the following format:
Script error line #### character ## object ####
Causes of QuickBooks Script Error
Whatever the format might be, script errors occur when the functions that process the scripts are blocked, or there’s damage to the script software and/or the data associated to it is incompatible.
