Important reminder!

Product support for Engagement CS is ending on September 30, 2020. See Engagement CS license expiration 2020 - frequently asked questions for more information.

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

The overall objective of the Datawrite Client Accounting to Creative Solutions Accounting (CSA) conversion utility is to provide a comprehensive conversion of your Datawrite data to the Write-Up CS software in CSA.

After creating or opening the client, choose Utilities > Data Conversion > Datawrite.

Special information

Fields & buttons

Enter the location where the client data files that you wish to convert are stored, or click the Browse button to search for the correct data folder.

Once you have specified the location of the files to convert, choose the client that you would like to convert by selecting it from the drop-down list.

Mark this checkbox if you would like to convert employee earnings information for the selected client.

Note: If there are no employee earnings in the Datawrite file, we recommend that you do not mark this checkbox. You will then be able to use the Employee Templates feature of the Payroll Compliance module to complete the payroll item structure for the individual employees. This includes the added advantage of having the re-useable employee templates available for use when adding future employees.

Opens the conversion guide (PDF) in the Adobe Reader (or opens a related CSA help topic).
