Need example of IIF file showing invoices with stock codes?

We're busy trying to cobble together an IIF file to bulk upload 9 months worth of ebay sales into Reckon. (After this we'll do the same for 9 months worth of Zencart sales.)

We've scoured the web and the help files looking for examples and managed to get something ready for a test upload. Reckon reported that it was successful but there was no sign of the invoice and no changes at all to the stock levels of the 3 test items on the single sales invoice in the file.

So we're a bit stuck!

Does anyone have an example file that we can use as a template for another attempt? We made ours by combing details from lots of different examples, reading help files and guesses and it obviously has at least one error in it. But, the information available doesn't help us to work out what it is!

Any and all assistance greatly appreciated! (Apart from suggestions we try 3rd party providers.)

Hi Mitchell,

See the following posts in the Community that may be relevant to your situation.

Basically do a search on the community as likely your questions or variations of it would have already been asked in the past and may have a solution or recommendation.

For other users not as confident with creating their own import text files, the can consider using some 3rd party utilities that may be better suited to their needs and technical proficiency.
