Flexible Date formats supported by Excel Transactions

It is not a surprise that we use multiple date formats in our files.

Each country or each Firm uses different date format in their file.


How is it handled in Excel Transactions?


We don’t want to make any assumptions about the date formats.

Because it is difficult to arrive at a conclusion that “01-02-16” is January 2,2016 or February 1,2016.

So we have provided the settings to capture your date format.



If you have already imported your transactions using “Excel Transactions” and found that

the date is wrong in your QuickBooks, you need to change your date settings.
