How to import a list of expense entries from a CSV file.

  1. Open the Excel program
  2. In the first row add the fields Amount, Currency, Category, Vendor and note in the A1…F1 cells.
  3. Under every cell fill in all the details as in this image.
  4. The Date field must be formatted the same as your system’s date format; in my case we use the DD/MM/YYYY format.
  5. The Currency filed field must be added in the country’s currency’s code, like such as USD, AUD, ..etc.
  6. All added category categories and vendors are automatically saved.
