This error could be caused by the batch of credit cards needing to be forced closed or there is damage to the company data file.

To fix the problem:

  1. Make sure none of your workstations are creating a receipt and then close Point of Sale on the Server Workstation. Important: Do not reboot in the meantime.
  2. Open Point of Sale. Error 180037 will display as expected.
  3. Update the program to the most current release.

If the issue persists, contact Intuit Payment Solutions at 800.558.9558 and request that they force close the batch and run a debug to reset the batch number.
