Chapter 13: Importing Data at Setup Time (6141)
Prior to importing information into Big Business, you need to prepare a tab delimited text file containing the necessary information. Each field to be imported must be separated by a tab, and each record must be separated by a return. This is easily done using a spread sheet.
Once you have created a tab delimited text file, you must then import it into Big business. You can select the "import" option during setup for Accounts and Categories, Customers, Vendors, and Items.
Caution: When you import customer information, Big Business will not import Accounts Receivable categories that don't match the defaults. The defaults are used instead.
