STEP 3. Mapping

On “Mapping” step you map columns from your file to QuickBooks fields. For this you need to choose label of your file from dropdown or set manual value that will appear in all selected fields. To simplify this process for future similar mapping you can save import mapping as separate file. Just click “Save Import Mapping” button and set name of your mapping. Next time just select your import mapping to map all fields automatically. Fields that are highlighted in red are required.
