Connecting to QuickBooks
Why is QuickBooks required to be running?
For security reasons, eZ Import requires that QuickBooks® is running when it is launched. This prevents unauthorized access to your sensitive company information.
Why am I receiving the following error? “The application does not have permission to access this QuickBooks® company data file ….”
During the registration process or at some other point, eZ Import was denied access to QuickBooks®. To correct this issue perform the following steps:
Going forward, the eZ Import will be able to access QuickBooks® for this company file. Note: If you use multiple company files you may be required to perform this procedure on each file.
- Open your company file in QuickBooks®
- Select Edit | Preferences from the QuickBooks® menu
- Select Integrated Applications in the list of preferences on the left hand side of the dialog box.
- Click the Company Preferences tab.
- Highlight eZ Import line and click Properties. The Properties dialog box opens.
- Under the Access Rights tab select "Allow this application to read and modify this company file" and de-select Prompt before allowing access.
- Click OK on the Properties dialog box.
- Click OK on the Preferences dialog box.
File / Data Mapping
What are Mappings?
eZ Import support two different types of mappings: File & Data.
File Mappings allow the specifying of which data and the location of the data in the import file. For example, column 1 is the date, column 2 is the amount in the file, etc.
Data Mappings allow you to translate data in the import into QuickBooks equivalent names. For example, the import file contains a "Home Depot Ashburn" as the vendor. However, QuickBooks has just
Home Depot as the name. You could create a one-time data mapping that anytime the file contains "Home Depot Ashburn" in the vendor column to translate it to "Home Depot".
Do Data Mappings have to match the import file data exactly?
Yes, with the exception of Bank and Credit Card Imports. In those two cases, the Data Mapping just makes sure the file data contains the word(s) in the mappings.
