Does the Import Template Accept Parends "()" as a negative value?


When performing a transaction import with the Transaction Import Template, will the import engine accept numbers enclosed in parends/parenthesis [ie.  (345.87) ] as a negative value?


Avatax Calc


Yes, the import engine will accept parends enclosed numbers in the Import Template and interpret them as a negative value. It is best to make sure that the column is properly formatted as a numerical value in Excel.
