Importing and exporting data from MYOB premier software is a simple feat to achieve as long as one pays attention to performing the right steps. If you plan on exporting confidential data from MYOB premier, here’s what you should do in order to successfully achieve that:
MYOB Premier provides software users with different MYOB export options- the type of exporting option you want will occasionally vary depending on the information type you want exported. So you can choose between the options that closely relate to your requirements. By default, MYOB Premier allows users to export various types of information including: Items, General Journal Entries, Tax Codes, Inventory Adjustments, Receive/Spend Money Transactions, Accounts, Purchases, Cards, Activities, Sales and more.
One thing to keep in mind when exporting data from MYOB Premier would be whether or not the subsequent target software you want can access and read the exported file format. Two most commonly and easiest used file formats would be tab-delimited and comma-separated files.
Tab-delimited file formats are files that come with fields that are separated through tab characters. For example, if there are tab characters between different sections under a customer information file, the exported file will count the different sections as separate fields within the same record.
Comma-separated file formats on the other hand, separate fields using commas. While they are also essentially used as exporting methods, they are more suited for programs built to incorporate database functions whereas Tab-delimited file formats are more suited for other spreadsheet programs like Microsoft Excel.
Do note that MYOB Premier only allows for one user to be logged in during the exporting process so make sure that requirement is made before following through with the process. To begin exporting, locate your file menu and select the Export data option. MYOB Premier will then prompt you for what data type you wish to export. Selecting the data type will enable the Export file window, you can then choose the first record type and select continue.
Once that is achieved, take the liberty to pick all the relevant fields and the order of said fields to export in. Select the Export option once more and save under a specified location. This will enable all your MYOB data to be exported successfully.
