Intuit Conversion FAQ

See below for answers to frequently asked questions that come up during conversion.

Duplicate transactions after completing reactivation

This is usually caused by overlapping the date range when importing the Web Connect file.  Depending on the number of duplicate transactions imported, the best solution may be to restore the backup file created earlier in the conversion process. If there are not many transactions, they can be deleted prior to, or after accepting them to the register.

Common problems:

  • Duplicate transactions
  • Register is out of balance
  • Being asked to add an adjustment during reconciliation.

Specific steps/recommendations based on products are below:
