Re: transfered from POS to incorrect data file

Hi there, @dotgillies,


I'm here to help transfer data from QuickBooks POS to the correct company file.


Before proceeding, create a backup of your QuickBooks file since the suggested solutions below are irreversible. Once done, you can then import them. Here's how:

  1. Go to the File menu.
  2. Select Utilities, Import, then Excel Files.
  3. If you get the Add/Edit Multiple List Entries window, click No.
  4. Follow the wizard in importing files:
        a. Select the type of data.
        b. QuickBooks opens a formatted excel spreadsheet.
        c. Once you have entered your information, saved the file and closed it, you will be given the option to Add My Data Now.
        d. Review results and view Data in QuickBooks.
        e. Click Close when done.

Another way of import files QuickBooks Desktop is going through this link: Import or export MS Excel files. This article provides options and their detailed steps to guide you with the process.


You also need to restore the file where you originally imported the data to overwrite any previous imports.


Keep me posted if you need anything else and I'd be glad to help you out.
