Projects/Generic CSV Bankstatement Importer/User Manual
The Generic CSV Bankstatement importer module allows to import bank statement lines from a generic CSV file.
The CSV file must contain the following columns as the header:
- Transaction Date
- Reference No.
- Business Partner Name
- Amount OUT
- Amount IN
The fields separator for the CSV file must be set to comma (,).
Any locale is fully supported by the module:
- The date format can be defined to any format (for example: dd/MM/yyyy, MM/dd/yyyy)
- The decimal separator can be defined to either comma (,) or dot (.).
Obviously, it is mandatory to follow the same decimal separator and date format in the whole CSV file
Here you can find an example of a CSV file compatible with the Generic CSV Bankstatement Importer module:
Transaction Date,Reference No.,Business Partner Name,Amount OUT,Amount IN,Description 20/10/2012,1,Foo Bar,0,"150,65", 01/12/2012,"25,123",My Business Partner,2222,0,A description for this line
This file example can be downloaded from the forge's project page. You can use it as a base for creating another CSV file with your own data.
Once the dataset has been successfully applied, the user can specify the date format and decimal separator that are used into their CSV files.
The date format can be any supported by the SimpleDateFormat java class; for example dd/MM/yyyy represents numeric day/numeric month/numberic (31/12/2050)
