What are some helpful tips to know when importing Checks into QuickBooks Online (QBO) with Transaction Pro Importer?
Below are some helpful tips to keep in mind regarding the most common issues that occur when importing Checks into QBO with Importer.
- When importing a Check, the following fields are required (at minimum).
- Bank Account (GL Account Name or Number)
- If a Check has multiple distribution lines on it, repeat the same Reference Number on every line (ie. a transaction ID or check number) to allow Importer to know to group the multiple lines onto one Check.
- Importer supports both Account Numbers and Account Names. However, only include either the lowest Sub-Account number or the entire Account Name in the import file, not both.
- If importing Account Numbers, on the Preview window of Importer, click OPTIONS and select the option to ENABLE ACCOUNT NUMBERS ON TRANSACTIONS.
- These fields are required if importing Products or Services on the Item tab: LineItem, LineQuantity, and either LineUnitPrice or LineAmount.
- These fields are required if using Expense Accounts on the Accounts tab: ExpenseAccount and ExpenseAmount.
