    Journal Entry Import

    The Journal Entry Import Template is a text file much like the ones used to import records (e.g. Clients, Vendors, Products) into other AV modules. However, this template has a different format that must be strictly adhered to.

    There are two sections to this import template:

    1. GL Summary
    2. Sub-Account Detail

     In the sample below, rows 6-10 make up the GL Summary section and rows 12-43 make up the Sub-Account Detail section.

    Note: If your import does not contain Sub-Account data (Inventory, AR, AP, etc), you must still include the Sub-Account header row (row 12 in screen shot below) and the EOF (end of file) tag.

    Before you begin:

    Using Custom Forms for Printing Checks

    In order to print checks in Acctvantage, you must assign a Custom Form for each type of check: AP Disbursement, Quick Check and Payroll.

    The standard Custom Form installers for Checks can be downloaded below. There are 2 formats for Check Forms:

    1. check - stub - stub
    2. stub - check - stub
  • Below are bare minimum system requirements for both AcctVantage Client and Server hardware. Better than minimum hardware will improve performance.

    AcctVantage Technical Support does not support hardware, network, or other IT setup outside of actually installing and configuring the AcctVantage software. However, we will be happy to work with your IT staff or consultants to discuss our experiences with various hardware/network situations.

    Notes on Operating Systems:  

    • AcctVantage releases are certified to work with specific versions of Macintosh and Windows Operating Systems.  
      • For Macintosh, certifications are done at the 10.x level, meaning that an AcctVantage version certified for 10.5 or earlier will not operate on a server or client running Mac OS 10.4.  
      • For Windows, the certification is done by major release version such as Windows XP or Windows 7.
    • We suggest turning OFF all Automatic Update programs that may update an Operating System version. The OS certification applies to both Server and Client machines.
    • Bookmark this article for the latest supported OS versions and the corresponding AcctVantage release.
    • AcctVantage operates on a Local Area Network (LAN) using TCP/IP protocols. If all users are on the same LAN, then dynamic IP address assignment is acceptable. It is recommended that all LAN connections be routed through switches rather than hubs and that “daisy-chaining” of switches and/or hubs be avoided.
