This custom routine allows for the import of large numbers of creditors.
The import format is the same as the standard creditor import spreadsheet and payment amounts are also supported.
Why is it fast?
This process side-steps Counterparty matching so reduces the import time. This process can be used where large numbers of creditors (35,000+) need to be imported quickly. It is recommended that the normal creditor import routine is used in all other circumstances.
