The Bank Statement Import command enables you to import an electronic copy of the bank statement in order to more easily and quickly complete the bank reconciliation.

Use the Bank Statement Import dialog to import a bank statement, view and print the statement, and more easily clear transactions, identify and adjust data entry errors, and create adjustments or split deposits in order to successfully reconcile your client's cash accounts.

When the Bank Reconciliation window is active, choose Bank Statement Import from the Edit menu or from the F3 or right-click context menu.

Special information

The client is responsible for downloading the statement file from the bank and sending it to you. Most banks have several file formats available to download. Write-Up CS currently supports XML, OFX, OFC, QIF, and QFX formats. The QIF and QFX formats are most commonly used by Quicken and QuickBooks, while both OFX and OFC formats are used by Microsoft Money.

You can view a report of the bank statement contents in the Bank Statement Import Preview window by clicking the Preview Statement button.
