Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

For details, see CSA license expiration 2017 – frequently asked questions.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

The overall objective of the Creative Solutions Accounting (CSA) Utilities > Import > ASCII File command is to provide a time-saving method of importing data from non-CS Professional Suite applications to CSA. The import process requires that all import files be structured according specific guidelines. Note that, although importing information can save time over reentering the data into CSA, the structuring of the import files is technical in nature and may be time-consuming.

Before you open the import dialog you must open the client into which you would like to import data, and that client must include the General Ledger module.

After creating or opening the client in the CSA main window, choose Utilities > Import > ASCII File.
