When I started my hobby, I just used QB for writing checks. Now I have grown it to the point where I want to add a much more comprehensive chart of accounts to my program. How can I import the new chart without disrupting my history and present setup? Please don't tell me one account at a time. :-)
Additionally, instead of starting from scratch, you can transfer info to and from QuickBooks. This makes it easy for you to convert, upgrade, or create a new company file. To learn more about this, you can refer to this article: Import and export data in QuickBooks Desktop.
Let me know how it goes in the comments below. If you have other concerns about managing your Chart of Accounts in QBDT. I'm just around to help. Take care always.
When I tried to import an iif file from another system, it stalls and doesn't download. The error message refers to line 5 having error or duplicate input. Can I go to the comuter that I am exporting from and clean up the chart, then try to export again?
