About Exporting Accounting Data

For those companies who utilize an external general ledger system, ManageMore can easily export accounting data in a format that can be imported by other financial applications. You can choose to export a journal entry of your transactional data, and the level of detail to include.

Q & A - Export Accounting Data

Q01.   My accounting package is not listed in the Software Package field. What do I do?
A01.   Choose the Other Accounting Software option. This will create a ASCII-delimited file that most accounting packages can read from.

Q02.   Quickbooks is giving me an error message when I try to import the journal entry, such as:
   "Transaction split lines to accounts receivable must include a customer on that split line." or
   "Transaction split lines to accounts payable must include a vendor on that split line."
   How can I fix this?
A02.   Since ManageMore does not require users who maintain an external general ledger to also keep customer and/or vendor information in the external system, we do not export the customer and/or vendor information in the fields required by Quickbooks. Therefore, you should not use an "Accounts Receivable" or "Accounts Payable" account in Quickbooks that will receive transactions from ManageMore. Instead, use an "Other Current Asset" or "Other Current Liability" account in Quickbooks.

Q03.   I don't see my question here. Where else can I get information?
