Once screen is open, click on Browse to find file generated by Lightyear that you wish to import into Adept.
Please note that Lightyear will generate a .txt file, not a .csv file, but this has been designed to be imported seamlessly into Adept.
Then click the green tick.

If no Errors, Adept will generate an AP invoice-batch.


Importing Credit Notes

If your export from Lightyear contains credits notes, Lightyear will generate 2 files, one for bills and one for credit notes.  Adept cannot accept an import file that contains both bills and credit notes.

The Bill/Invoice number

Adept only allows the importing of 10 digits in the bill number field.  If the supplier bill number is longer than 10 digits then Lightyear will use the last 10 digits, not the first 10.
