Importing journal entries

You can import journal entries to complete an existing database and therefore avoid manual data entry in the application.

To import journal entries, first download the import template. This template shares important information and presents the only valid file structure for a successful import.

If you want to import data retrieved from an accounting or business management application, make sure that this data respects the structure of the import template.

Input help
To structure your data, consult the input help article, which informs you about the correct values for data.

To import journal entries:
