Send and Import General Journal Entries

Does anyone know if it is possible to create the General Journal Entry file on a Windows QB Version and have someone with a MAC QB Version import the file? 

I have a restored company file on my Windows Desktop QB version and want to send Journal Entries for the client to import on their MAC Desktop QB version. 

Thanks

Re: Send and Import General Journal Entries

Thank you very much.  I like being able to send the journal entries to clients and use it all the time, I just wasn't sure if it would work between to two different operating systems.  We'll give it a shot!  Thank you for taking time to respond.
