Error Message - can't find solution and don't know what it even means.

When trying to open one particular 2013 tax file that we previously prepared (with no problems; no errors) and that is ready for e-filing, the file will now not open and the following error displays: "offset and length were out of bounds for the array or count is greater than the number of elements from index to the end of the source collection".  I have closed down the program and re-started it and still have the same error. I have also tried to find help on the FAQ and problem resolution, but no luck.  My associate also tried to open this file, but he gets the same error.  We have no problems working with any of our other client files. Thanks for your help.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
