Once your export is complete, the export file will be in the Intuit Interchange Format (IIF). You are now ready to import the file into QuickBooks desktop.
It is much more difficult to back a bad transaction out of QuickBooks than it is to remove it from eTapestry . Therefore, it is a very good idea to make a backup of your QuickBooks database before every import. That way, if something goes wrong with the import, you can restore your data.
To run the import, select File, Utilities and Import. Then select the name of the IIF file. The import begins when you select the file.
Confirm that all of the expected transactions ended up where they belong in QuickBooks. Now is the best time to restore from backup if you discover that something went wrong.
If an IIF transaction import appears to have been successful, but the information does not appear where you expect it in QuickBooks, use the Find feature of QuickBooks. Using the Entered/Modified filter, select to search from the date you ran the import.
This find will show transactions that were committed on that day regardless of transaction date.
