Problem:

    1. On PC 1 - Customer has existing company file with several years worth of records.
    2. On PC 2 - Customer has created a second company file (for same company) and input 6 months worth of bank statements.
    3. On PC 1 - Subsequent updates have been made to the original company file - leaving a 6 month gap in the check register.


 I need to export the check register on PC 2 and import/merge with existing register on PC 1

kmccain,

Not going to be a fun project no matter how you do it.

Do you have a programing language you can use to do this project with?

You can print the check register to a CSV file then import it using the QuickBooks SDK.

And of course if you don't have too many typing them in again would probaly be a good option.

Turned out to be fairly simple -

 First I exported the 6 months worth of register data to excel and then wrote a vb routine to import the spread sheet into a MSAccess table. Next I downloaded some sample IIF files from quickbooks.com and used vb to output the check register data in the proper IIF format and then imported that into quickbooks.

I have the SDK but since this was a one time thing I just cobbled together some vb routines.

 It's kind of a cludgy process but it got the job done.  Sample IIF files can be found at

the rest of it was just reading and writing spreadsheets from a vb6 project.
