If you are getting a Tribute Center database error, the first thing to attempt would be to do a restart of your computer or laptop. Once rebooted we recommend you wait 5 minutes for the database service to restart itself. Then try to open Tribute Center. Hint: If opened too quickly after restarting the database may not have time to start itself. If you still have issues, please contact our support department for further assistance: 866-372-9372.
