Importing Owner Balances
This guide will give you step by step instructions on how to import your owner beginning balances.
Before you begin...
In order to import balances, you will need to have the Owner ID.
You will only be able to Import Balances if that owner was imported during the initial set up.
To find your imported Owner ID's, go to Accounts Receivable > Charges > actions > Import Owner Charges > Download a Sample.
The file that downloads will contain the import Owner ID's.
If you did not import your owners, you will need to manually add the Owner Balances.

What does the .CSV file look like?
How do I add the information?
