Account balance export to ProSeries (Export Client Data Wizard)

Show expandable text

Use the Export Client Data Wizard to export client tax data to your ProSeries tax application from Accounting CS.

Before you transfer account balances from Accounting CS to ProSeries, verify that the data paths are set up correctly in both applications. To do this in Accounting CS, choose Setup > File Locations > Export tab to set up file locations for ProSeries and other applications.


  • Accounting CS creates and saves the export data as an ASCII file, as required by ProSeries.
  • If a file of the same name already exists in the specified location for the export file, the application overwrites the existing file.

Fields & buttons

The Export Client Data wizard presents the following pages as it steps you through the export process.

  • Client name. Select a client from the drop-down list in the Client name field or, to export data for multiple clients at the same time, mark the Perform batch export of client data checkbox.
  • Export to program. Select ProSeries.
  • File Location. Enter the path or browse to the client data file. (The default data file location can be defined in the Export Data tab of the Setup > File Locations dialog.)
  • Tax Year. Select the tax year for which to export client data.

When you mark the Perform batch export of client data checkbox in the Source Data screen and click Next, the wizard opens this screen to enable you to select the clients whose data you want to export.

  • Search and Filter. Use these fields to narrow the list of clients in the Clients grid below. See Searching and filtering data for details.
  • Clients grid. Mark the checkbox for each client to include in the export file. (The application will create a single export file for each selected client.)

Diagnostics. The application automatically displays a summary of the information included in the export files — Accounts, Description, Beginning Balance, and Ending Balance.

To print the diagnostic information, click the Print button.
