  • Before you start generating, esnure that the file of the number you are generating does not exist already
  • In case the file is existing already then delete it or create generation number different from it
  • In case the problem still continues then it means that security software, which is generally an antivirus, is interfering while the generation is going on
  • Remove the file that is generated, it could be the .mdb file and not .dat
  • Close the EFT
  • Get the security software re-activated
  • Then generate it again
  • If the problem still persists then there is some problem with the security software or there is some interference with other security software
  • If this is the case, then keep repeating till it starts working

Method 8: Working Folder or MDB file is corrupted

  • Close the EFT
  • Get the files in working directory deleted
  • Then open the company and EFT. It will get the vendor’s employees and customers imported completely new
  • Then add the banking information of employee, vendor and customer in EFT again
