When you select an object type the data tables will change to show objects of that type in AyaNova and one or more types of Items from QuickBooks that potentially match the AyaNova type.

Select Rows to export

Select "Yes" to continue, QBI will create objects in QuickBooks and refresh the two tables once the operation has completed showing the newly created objects and their link state.

Things to know

QuickBooks field lengths

QuickBooks has set limits on some field length where AyaNova does not so in some cases data needs to be truncated from AyaNova to fit into QuickBooks fields.

Company name in QB Invoice

To accommodate QuickBooks lack of company name information displaying in a QuickBooks invoice (as only shows what displays in Bill To address), QBI exports the AyaNova company name into the first line of the QuickBooks company address field.

Bill / ship address

To accommodate QuickBooks inability to use Ship To address in a QuickBooks invoice if there is no Bill To address, QBI will now import the AyaNova Customer's company name and address into the Bill To address as well as the Ship To address if there is only one address entered in the AyaNova Customer record.

Customer terms

Customer terms must be set manually in QuickBooks after export:

export to qb set terms

QuickBooks Vendor type

QuickBooks vendor type is not set by QBI when exporting an AyaNova Vendor.
