Thank you for posting in the Community. I'd be happy to help share another way on how to import the item list into QuickBooks.
You can try the Advance Import process to bring the item list to QuickBooks Desktop. It's a mapping tool that'll allow you to choose which column in your spreadsheet matches the data you're importing. It also allows you to update a field or name for an item that's already in QuickBooks.
I recommend following the steps under Option 2: Advanced import in the Import or export MS Excel files article. Please see the steps based on the situation you are in.
If you need to reach out for more help, our phone agents will be able to help you get to a resolution quickly.
