Solution 5: Disable Windows UAC (User Account Controls)
Press the Windows Key to open the Start menu. Begin typing ‘User Account Control Settings’ to search and open User Account Control Settings.
Select and move the slider down to Never Notify and select OK, then Restart the computer.
Open QuickBooks and try to export a report. If the export is working, then the issue is due to UAC. You will need to go back to the UAC window and adjust it to your required setting.
Note: You should not run windows using the Never option for security reasons.
Solution 6: Verify QuickBooks Compatibility with Office Version
Your version of QuickBooks and Excel may not be compatible with each other. If you are using an older version of QuickBooks, it may not support 64 bit versions of Microsoft Office. If that is the case you can install the 32 bit version of office to see if this resolves the issue.
You can download your version of QuickBooks if you do no have the install files from the QuickBooks website. Before you uninstall, make sure to write down your license and product code of your QuickBooks software. You can find it by pressing F2 when you have QuickBooks open. If you already removed QuickBooks, you can find it using an alternative method:
Check the original packaging of the product
Log into your intuit account at intuit.com and checking the order history
Search your emails if you purchased a digital copy (Some websites email you the license info)
