Before starting to use your Dynamics GP system you will typically need to populate some initial data, like General Ledger accounts, vendors, customers, and open transactions or balances. While all of these can be entered manually, it is often more efficient to import them.

In this chapter we will go over the basics of using Integration Manager to import data into Dynamics GP and look at an example of each of the following types of imports:
General Ledger accounts
General Ledger transactions
Open payables transactions
Open receivables transactions
