The method used to import transactions depends on whether you have the Cash or the Accrual accounting method in MYOB Premier.

In the Open window, Browse to your Practice Manager Export Folder and open it.
Select the sub-folder you exported the transactions to from Practice Manager (see Exporting transactions to MYOB Premier).
Each time you export transactions from Practice Manager, you should export them to a new sub-folder with a date as part of its name. For example, 20170903 to identify ‘3 September 2017’. This folder contains the Practice Manager transaction files, i.e.:
