An error message in the log file states that a journal entry must be in balance and have both debit and credit lines.
Microsoft Office Accounting cannot import a check with a zero amount that includes a cash account, such as a bank account, in an expense line item. In this situation, the Convert from QuickBooks Wizard tries to import the transaction as a journal entry. A journal entry cannot have a zero amount, so an error message appears.

When I try to migrate all data, the message "You can import only master records if QuickBooks is not installed" appears, but QuickBooks is installed on my computer.
This message appears if you attempt to open a company file created with a version of QuickBooks different from the one installed on your computer. For example, this message will appear if QuickBooks 2005 is installed and you try to open a company created with QuickBooks 2004. To remedy the problem, do the following:
Close the Convert from QuickBooks Wizard.
In QuickBooks, open the company file you are trying to migrate.
Convert the company file to the installed version of QuickBooks when prompted to do so.
On the Accounting Start page, click Import data from QuickBooks to restart the QuickBooks data migration process.
An error message indicates that Accounting did not migrate a transaction because its date is outside of the acceptable range.
Accounting accepts transactions with dates ranging from January 1, 1900 through December 31, 2100. It will not migrate transactions with dates outside of this range.
One of my migrated QuickBooks accounts generated the following error: "This financial account is specified as the liability account of a tax agency and can only be used for tax related transactions."

I receive an error when trying to migrate a QuickBooks 2005 database to Accounting.
If you are using QuickBooks 2005 on a computer where QuickBooks 2006 is also installed, or where QuickBooks 2006 was previously installed, Accounting may generate an error. To migrate a QuickBooks 2005 database to Accounting in this situation, you will first need to upgrade it to QuickBooks 2006.
