import general ledger (General)

posted by Gregory West(R) E-mail, Manitoba Canada, 13.08.2016, 10:55

So you are doing much like what I am doing. There is no easy way to
directly import a bank statement into SQL-Ledger, but I just use Excel and
create the import file. The import file I have in Excel look like:
reference transdate description accno debit credit

2015-10-Pay 2015-10-31 October 2015 Payroll 5750 0 2948.72
2015-10-Pay 2015-10-31 October 2015 Payroll 2450 0 11918.57
and so on....

As you can see some things the bank statement wont have are the Account
Number (accno) and any other non-bank accounts involved. Your bank
statement will show a deposit of XYZ money, what it won't show is why the
money is being deposited in the first place.

Sorry the above is missing some commas:

reference, transdate, description, accno, debit, credit,
2015-10-Pay, 2015-10-31, October 2015 Payroll, 5750, 0, 2948.72,
2015-10-Pay, 2015-10-31, October 2015 Payroll, 2450, 0, 11918.57,

Also I put in the trailing commas only because I have had import/translation issues if I didn't.

Why would you import a bank statement?

I use the GL Import quite a bit. What I use it for is to import GL
transactions from a separate program (specifically a payroll program).

What is it what you are trying to do?

I manually enter many transactions from my bank statement. A simple
would be easier even if I must modify the entry in the chart of


more information as to how to use this feature. Could I use it to
bank statement?
