Re: Importing chart of accounts

Have checked file structure and looks correct but still comes up with the below statement when I try and import into new MYOB Essentials.

 

The column "" is incorrect.

 

I have attached the file I am trying to import.

Hi @AnthonyL 

 

Thanks for providing that file. If you delete the curly brackets in the first line you should be able to import without any further problems.

 

Please do let me know how you do with this.

Re: Importing chart of accounts

Have taken brackets out as you suggested but still does not import.

Any other suggestions?

I have attached the amended chart that I tried.

Re: Importing chart of accounts

When I click on the link (Chart of accounts) it takes me to microsoftonline login.

Do I need to log in through this to get access to the link you posted?
