We have the Enterprise 6.0 version installed throughout the office & on a
terminal server, as well.
We were/are in multi user mode, but keep getting error messages that we
aren't!
Why would this keep reverting back to single user mode & how can I fix this?
Thanks!

We use QB 2005 Pro, so this may or may not apply. I have found that QB
remembers your last login attempt and will continue to login that way.
If you try to login as single user but cannot because others are
already logged in, it will offer the option to log in as multi user.
But it will remember that you wanted to log in as single user, and try
again the next time. What I found as a work-around or cure was to log
in each person one at a time, switch to multi-user and then log off. It
remembers that for future logins. On those occasions that I have to
log in as single user for maintenance, I make sure I switch back to
multi user before I log off.

Actually, we had set it up wrong.
