Use blank lines between records when importingA record is an organised collection of information about an individual piece of data. For example, information about a single sale is stored as one record.
When importing sales, purchases, inventory adjustments and journal entries, a blank line must be entered between each record; that is, there must be a line between each sale, purchase, inventory adjustment or journal entry. The blank line marks the end of the record when it is imported into a company file.
If no blank line is entered to separate each record, all of your records could be imported as one long record instead of as individual records.
Importing from a company file If you’re importing information that was exported from another AccountRight company file, a blank line was entered between records in the file during the export process.
Importing from other software If you’re importing information that was exported from other software, be sure the file has a blank line between each type of record. If the file you want to import doesn’t have a blank line between each record, you may want to open the file using a text editor (such as Notepad or Microsoft Word) or a word processing or spreadsheet program and insert a blank line manually.
