Hello, I am currently trying to import my income from a Excel spreadsheet, I have followed the quickbooks guide on format and layout of the spread sheet but every time I try and upload I am greeted with this error message.
After reviewing the spreadsheet, you can start importing it to QBSE. Let me help and guide you through the process.
Log in to your QBSE account to access the Transactions tab.
Click the drop-down menu next to Add transaction.
Select Import transactions and make sure it's the same account where you downloaded the data.
Choose Import older transactions under the Action column.
Click the Browse button and locate the file you've exported above.
Select Include all transactions and then review your transactions.
Hit the Continue button.
Click OK then Done.
If you get the same result, sign in to QBSE using the incognito mode or private browsing. This is to identify if this is a cache-related issue.
Google Chrome: Press CTRL + Shift + N
Mozilla Firefox: Press CTRL+ Shift + P
Safari: Press Command + Shift + N
If you can import the transactions smoothly, clear the cache of your regular browser. When you visit a website, the browser stores information, files, downloads, etc.
These old files can cause some display or access problems. Clearing the cache will help applications run better on your computer including QBSE. Otherwise, use another browser when importing the transactions.
For additional resources, this article provides information on how to bring transactions to QBSE and steps to categorize them: Manually import transactions.
