Error importing CSV file

Hi there,


Whenever i try to import the data from my bank I keep getting the same error:
"Uh-oh, looks like we ran into some trouble importing this file at line Http failure response for 422 OK. Look for a date or an amount that shows odd formatting. Correct it and try again"


Can anyone shed a bit of light on what this may be? As far as I'm aware there are no incorrect formattings at line 422, or at least there's no formatting at this line that differs from anything before it. I have removed excess unecessary columns, and followed the instructions according to the CSV upload guide on the forums but nothing has worked yet.


Thank you,



QuickBooks Team

Error importing CSV file

Hi there, Joel-YH.


You may encounter this error when the CSV file’s format is incorrect, or the template doesn’t meet the specific requirements. QuickBooks Self-Employed can import CSV files that use either a 3-column or 4-column format.


Since you confirmed line 422 is formatted correctly, I suggest contacting our QuickBooks Self-Employed Support. They have the tools to pull up your account and check format when importing your data.


Here's how to contact them:


1. Log in to your QuickBook Self-Employed account.

2. Click Assistant at the upper right corner.

3. Ask general questions like, How to import data from the bank? in the search icon at the bottom.

4. Continue or follow onscreen instructions.
