Importing a vendor with a name that already exists (as a vendor)


Darin Nadler

We have occasion to deal with two companies with the same name. When
we import a large excel file that contains a name (but actually a
different vendor) that is already in the QuickBooks file, the newly
imported name overwrites the previously existing name. These two
companies have different identification numbers... Is there a way to
key on that number instead of the name? Or is there a way to ask
confirmation before overwriting? Thank you for any help you can send
my way.

No way to do either of these things. QuickBooks matches on the name.




Give them different names

Say XYZ - location A and XYZ - location B or whatever helps you
identify them on a day to day basis even XYZ and XYZ* should work.
