If you are importing journal entries into QuickBooks Online and receive the following error message: When you use Accounts Receivable, you must choose a $$customer$$ in the Name field. please review the resolution below.
For any line in your journal entry that is posted to an account that has a type of accounts receivable be sure to include a customer on that line of your journal entry and map this column to the QuickBooks field, Entity, on the Transaction Pro Importer mapping screen. Also the customer name must exist in QuickBooks Online pre-import. If you are using jobs be sure to include both the customer and job in your import file separated by a colon.
