You have downloaded the camt053/camt054 or MT940 from your financial institution and logged into the CashCtrl. Open the import dialog via Add journal/import postings. Then select the file and specify the target account. Continue with next->.

The file will be opened in a new import tab / tab, which remains open and will not be closed even after logging out. After a short moment, all movements are displayed as a list. Important: these are not yet imported into the accounting, this will happen later. It is possible to import all or only selected transactions.

CashCtrl marks recognized bookings and information green. With each new file and assignment the software can better assign customers, notes or regularities and automatically recognize them. If a customer transfers e.g. without mentioning the invoice number, CashCtrl can still assign the transfer with date, name, etc.

With >Edit the Edit dialog opens. On the left side you can see the raw data, as they were read out of the bank file. The missing information is entered on the right side.

The description field also serves as search field for all information. At the bottom left you can see how many bookings are contained in the file.

Important: In the import window, the sequence numbers are not yet created. CashCtrl cannot assign one yet, because the bookings have not been imported yet. Only when the transactions are imported, this happens. Leave the field empty and import the posting. A run number is assigned immediately.

All confirmed bookings are highlighted in green and can be imported into the accounting system with "Import confirmed bookings". Only now are the bookings transferred to the accounting.

In the journal, imported postings are marked with a blue dot. Payments for a document are displayed with an invoice icon and a dot.

Important note: The balance (right column in the screenshots) in the example shown here is always red, because it is a demo-camt file with a different balance.
