You can import payroll transactions from your payroll system into the General Journal window. You can then use the general journal to post the imported payroll transactions to general ledger accounts or bank accounts.

Payroll providers use different file formats, so you must specify the format of your providerís payroll file in the Payroll Trans. Import Format field in the General Ledger Setup window.

Before you can select the format, the payroll file in question must be enabled as a data exchange setup. For more information, see How to: Enable Import/Export of Bank or Payroll Files Using the Data Exchange Framework.
