Error importing QBD IIF file

One of our customers is receiving the following error when trying to import an IIF file:

[Darryl William Fabra] The entity does not exist in Quickbooks [11283]
[Mark Scott Sanger] The entity does not exist in Quickbooks [11283]


Both the people are set up as vendors in the QBD.  All the line items referred to these two employees show these errors.

Error importing QBD IIF file

Yes, the new overly picky default import process will complain if you try to use a name on a transaction without first creating it.  Instead of the old way where QB just creates it if it is not found.


Try these recommendations to bypass the new code, which is lacking: BRC QuickBooks 2019 & 2020 IIF Import Changes and Recommendations
