How can you export contractor payments to iif? This is after clicking the export transaction feature. This feature has failed three different times and it thinks it work

I would like to know how to export contractor payments after you've already tried to export them using export transactions. This is to an IIF file, not excel. You used to be able to see list of previously exported transactions before the forced upgrade and price gouging. Now that is no longer available and quickbooks payroll routinely throws an error during export. Then it thinks it worked correctly so it says no transactions to export. So you're left having to manually import them. I did figure out how to export the employee paycheck list to iif after a failure and the tax payments, but contractors I can't figure out at all.

Hello there, @idf_2d48bd80-791. Let me get the help you need in exporting contractor payments.

 

In QuickBooks Online (QBO), we have the Transaction List by Vendor report that you can run. Then, filter the names into your designated contractors. 

 

Here's how:

  1. In the left menu, click Reports.
  2. Select Transaction list by Vendor under Expenses and vendors.
  3. Go to the Customize tab.
  4. Filter the dates to All.
  5. Group the report by Vendor.
  6. Mark the Vendor box under Filter, then choose the contractors your want to include on the report.
  7. Tap on the Run report tab to refresh the page.

 

As for exporting the report, you only have two options. You can either select Export to Excel or Export to PDF. Since you want your file exported as IIF, you may consider converting the exported file online.

 

For your guide in running other reports, you can open this link: Run reports in QuickBooks Online.

 

Additionally, you can access the contractor payments data under the Contractors menu. The contractor details, payments, and documents are in one place so, users can easily view the information in just a few clicks. 

 

I'd be happy to show you how:

  1. In the left menu, click Payroll.
  2. Select Contractors.
  3. Select the contractor’s name.
  4. Go to the Payments tab.
  5. Filter the date, type, and payment method.

 

In case you need to add independent contractors in QuickBooks and set up a direct deposit for them, you can check the resources below for complete instructions:

Nothing makes me happier than someone responding with a solution that has absolutely nothing to do with what I asked. I'm so glad you feel good about yourself explaining something to a question that other people will then read and go well gee that's not what he asked either. But you all think you're doing an amazing job by spelling at a detailed process for something I'm not asking. Any idiot can figure out what you're explaining, that's why I'm asking my question, because it seems like it doesn't even exist. And based on your response, given how detailed you were about the obvious solution to something that I didn't ask, my guess is that you don't know how to do it either. So unless you can provide something useful, go ahead and delete your response, because it's just going to tick off other community members like myself who come to read a question and then look at a solution and say that has absolutely nothing to do with what I asked. It's amazing how many times people reply with that to the suggestions posted by expert users or intuit employees.
