The Import Assistant extracts data from several different file formats and then converts that data into a special type of text file that can be imported into the W-2/1099 Forms Filer or into AMS Payroll.
The formats include:
- Columnar Report File
- Tab Delimited Text File
- Comma Delimited Text File
- Lotus WK1 or dBase III DBF File
- QuickBooks 1099/W2 Print File
- Form Print File
- Federal 1099 MAG File
- Federal W-2 MAG File
- Lotus or Excel Files
AMS Payroll can also import directly from QuickBooks or PeachTree without using a print file.
The Value of Import Options
An accounting tool is only as useful as it is flexible. We understand that bookkeeping is not streamlined across businesses. In fact, we don’t think it should be. Each business should use the tools and data file formats that work best for their employees and system. Rather than trying to shoehorn disparate businesses of varying sizes, industries, and needs into a single system, we recognize the need for flexibility. This is one of the reasons why we offer several import options.
The ability to import from a variety of sources is a crucial piece of finding a user-friendly accounting software. Not all accounting tools offer this type of import convenience. With us, you’ll never have to worry.
In addition to providing several import options, Advanced Micro Solutions products also supply a variety of export features. Data is easily exported from our W-2/1099 Software to Excel, and payroll data can be exported to any tab delimited file. We know that maneuverability is an important factor in any accounting software decision, and we want to make it easier. All out software tools have flexible import/export options to make the switch easier.
