Adding Starter Data
I started with an empty file, and now I want to add data from a Starter File!
The Starter Files that come with Goldenseal accounting software include a lot of useful info that will help you to run your business, including all of the following:
Export Your Data
If you entered some of your own company data into an empty file, you'll need to merge it with a Starter File. To do that, you'll first export your company info. Follow these steps:
Create a New File
Next, create a new company file. Follow the instructions on page 159 in the Getting Started manual (orange cover), or click here for instructions. Make sure you give the new file a name that is different from your old file.
Import Your Data
Finally, import your company data into the new file. Follow these steps:
NOTE-- Goldenseal may not import new Cost Categories, Category Systems, Cost Items or Assemblies that you created on your own. However the Starter File already includes those items, and you can probably use our data instead.
