Importing Timer data into QuickBooks Pro 5
File|Timer Activities|Import Activities from Timer
starts the sequence to bring time activity records XE "importing:Timer data" XE "Timer data:importing" in from the various computers and users with Timer. (Using Navigator, in the
Payroll and Time tab, click
Timer Import/Export.) The working
directory name should be part of the plan,
and must be selected the first time
activities are imported. Wisely,
QuickBooks balks at importing the same file
twice. Note, however, that if an
activity is transferred a second time, under
a different file name, QuickBooks Pro 5 will
accept it without comment.
generated by importing may need to be edited. Payroll items are needed if employees are to be
paid by the hour, but Timer does not include them.
Any invalid data records will not be accepted until edited. QuickBooks forces edits on these records,
switching automatically into the
screen. There is no escape from this window until you
enter something that passes the edit.
When a file finishes loading, QuickBooks shows a summary report for the load.
The View Report
button on this screen gives access to the
Timer Import Detail report.
