    Hi Chelsea,

    Thanks for your input.

    I have a unique scenario….I want to add a unique identifier to each of my vendors. A unique identifier such as a 6 digit numeric value (546325, 846379,etc)

    How do I do this? Should I be using the Account NO.? What would be the best way to upload various numerical identifiers to vendors that are already in my QB?

      Hi Andrew,

      Great question! Adding an Account NO. could definitely work for your scenario. If you go into the Vendor Center>New Vendor>Add Multiple Vendors, you should see a button in the top right that says “Customize Columns.” This is where you can add an account number so that you can import your vendors correctly.

      Best wishes,

      Chelsea Krause

        Chelsea – I admit that I haven’t dug too deep into this, but I don’t see it mentioned that you can import the tax ID #? Do you happen to have a quick answer on that? Long story, but bottom line is I would like to be able to import the tax id’s (I have a list), instead of typing them individually.

        Thanks in advance!

          Hi Susan,

          Great question! You absolutely can import the tax IDs of your vendors. However, tax ID is not part of the default vendor import data list. So in order to do this, you’ll need to hit the “Customize Columns” button in the top right-hand corner of the Vendor Center. You’ll then be taken to a menu where you can select “Tax ID.” I’ve included a picture below to show how this works.

          I hope this helps and best of luck!
