We required that “QuickBooks” spreadsheet to cut and paste details from the spreadsheet we have created -> cut and paste information from the spreadsheet into QuickBooks spreadsheet, one column at a time, then click “Add My Data Now.” After this, to activate the transfer we need to Save the completed spreadsheet into the computer. Once the transfer is complete and if one prefer to delete the file can be deleted. Once the transfer is complete then there is one dialogue box will appear which includes the link to the particular location where we have transferred the spreadsheet information within the QuickBooks like the Vendor Center for a Vendors spreadsheet.
