How can a sales transaction such as Estimate, Invoice, or Sales Receipt post to a General Ledger (GL) Account instead of an Item when importing into QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) with Transaction Pro Importer?
In QBDT, Intuit does not allow a GL Account to be used on sales transactions. Instead, QBDT requires an Item to be used instead. The setup of the Item determines to what GL Account the transaction will post.
If the import file contains GL Accounts for the detail lines of the sales transactions, a workaround is to setup Items with the name that matches the GL Account.
