Quickbooks won't open my imported IIF file when using the "Review now" button.
Let's perform some steps to get the Review now button working in QuickBooks, 18633209.
The improved Intuit Interchange Format (.IIF), allows you to see the number of list and transactions that both failed and was successfully imported. QuickBooks automatically creates a new .IIF file for failed records with error info. Before doing some troubleshooting steps, let's make sure QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release and you meet the system requirements.
Once done, try closing and opening the company file again. Then, access the Select Review now button. Let me show you how:
Go to File on the top menu.Then,select Utilities then Import.
Choose IIF Files thenImport IIF.
Locate the file and tap OK.
Select Review now.
Look for ERROR to see what the problem(s) with the file is.
Correct the errors and Save.If asked if you want to keep the file type, select Yes.
Close the File not imported window and import the new, corrected .IIF file.
For more details about this one, see Improved IIF Import in QuickBooks 2019 and later article. If the same thing happens, try opening another company file to check if you're having a problem with only one file and not the program itself. You can also open it from a different location to check if the problem might be coming from a damaged folder. To open a sample file:
From the No Company Open window, select Open a sample file.
