If you’ve imported transactions and the transaction journal shows zero dollar amounts, then you’ve imported only one side of the entry. MultiLedger is a double-entry accounting system and requires both a debit and a credit when importing. If you import a Sales Journal transaction, here’s what it should look like:
05/01/04 7000 Customer 1 4100* Sales for April* -550.00* 1100 * 4/1/04-4/30/04* 550.00*
*Acct, Desc, Amt are repeating fields (you can read more about repeating fields in your MultiLedger manual).
If you have any doubts about how transactions should be imported, create an entry in MultiLedger and export it. Then open it up with a spreadsheet program or a word program and see what the text file should look like.
