"This operation cannot be performed"

I started receiving this message yesterday, 6/21, and
have read the earlier posts. Dell was no help. They had
me do a System Restore and an uninstall/reinstall of MS
Money 2004. And MS wants to get paid to talk to a
person! This pc is less than 2 mos. old. I'm turning to
what has worked in the past, users and experts.

I've also tried the Quick Repair and the -s option salvage
(Level 2) to repair the file, with no success. The log
said there were "no broken records in the original file,"
but the newly named salvaged file had the same problem.

I opened a different file with no problem, which tells me
the issue is with my personal file. I have a backup from
earlier this month. Is this my last solution? Do I
simply open the backup file, or go through the Restore
process? And other than having to do a lot of matching
of records, what else should I be looking for when I
bring my data up to date? Any idea what is causing
this? Is there less chance of this happening with M04
Deluxe ((Iwouldn't think so, but...). I never had this
happen with earlier versions of Money Deluxe (99 & 02).

Thanks for help and insight!

File->Restore or double-clicking the .mbf file will accomplish the
same thing. You can choose a different filename to restore to, in
case you have hopes for your .mny file. That hope seems slim to me.

Don't know what would have caused your problem. Accessing the file
over a network, perhaps?

Thanks for your patience and follow up, Cal. One more
question. Do I interpret from your message that when I
open the .mbf file I can save it to my original file name?

Yes. Restore will ask if you want to save the file to the "default",
and that would overwrite the existing file.
