Getting this error on the End Trans line. The IIF file has been used for years and now we're getting this error after upgrading to 2019.

[ERROR] Expected '!ENDTRANS'. [15152]

 

Here's a larger look at the file and errors.

Re: Error importing IIF File

There are two issues here:

First, the error is incorrect:

"; [ERROR] Expected '!ENDTRANS'. [15152]"  should state:

"; [ERROR] Expected '!ENDTRNS'. [15152]"

 

Second, you're getting the error because you have not defined the ENDTRNS row. You need an ENDTRNS definition line that starts with !ENDTRNS just as you have !TRNS and !SPL defined.

 

Also, note that there is no need to repeatedly redefine the rows.  One set of

!TRNS ...

!SPL ...

!ENDTRNS

definition rows at the top of the file is all that is needed.

 

While this needs to be fixed (would never have worked with any QB version), save yourself a lot of pain by following our recommendations: BRC - QuickBooks 2019 IIF Import Changes and Recommendations

Re: Error importing IIF File

Thanks for this post.  I discovered the hard way that the QB 2019 IIF import doesn't work with PayPal generated IIF files because PayPal doesn't include a TRNSTYPE field which QB thinks ought to be mandatory.  PayPal has NEVER included this field and their IIF files have always worked just fine with older versions of QB.  I'm glad to know the old import is still available.

Re: Error importing IIF File

Upgraded 2 days ago - and nothing else has changed and now my imported POS iif files have errors. When I examine the results - I get the Sales transaction by account but no payment accounts such as visa, amex, etc.  Looks like QB is creating an error file and when I try to review the file I cannot open it with the QB Launcher that is suggested.

 

Mind you - nothing, nothing changed on the POS system.

 

Anyone help?

Re: Error importing IIF File

We have the issue as well,  one invoice type imports fine but the other errors out.  Both worked with 16 and now 19 is quirky.  The qb launcher which pops up to do error evaluation errors out as well.   I opened it in notepad to see the error but it doesn't say anything where you could decipher why its erring out.  Gonna just run the bypass route,

So, Intuit now fully supports IIF import after years of castigating it?  Good to know.
