Import Multi-Line Transactions into QuickBooks Online

QUESTION

How does Transaction Pro Importer know when there are multiple detail lines on a transaction when importing into QuickBooks Online (QBO)?

RESOLUTION

Importer knows how to group multiple lines onto the same transaction when importing transactions such as Invoices, Bills, Journal Entries, et cetera based upon a common repeating value that is mapped to the field RefNumber. The reference number column must be sorted so that all like reference numbers are together grouped before importing.

In the example below, the column Invoice Number should be mapped to the field RefNumber on the TPI mapping screen, and two Invoices will be created. Jane Doe's invoice number 101 will have three detail lines, and Mark Jones's invoice 102 will have two detail lines.
