- On the Create Invoices window, select the ”Not exported” radio button (or All).
- Mark the checkbox next to the desired Work Order and click the “Export” button.

- The exported Work Order will disappear from the list. The Export Date for this order is set to the current date/time.
Only orders with empty Export Dates can be exported to QuickBooks. In order to re-export already-exported Work Orders, mark the checkboxes next to the desired orders and click the Clear Export Date button to make the Export Date fields empty, then re-export the Work Orders through the normal procedure.
If a Work Order with a non-empty Export Date is selected, a warning message of “Some Work Orders you selected are already exported. Please clear the export date if you want to re-export them” will display.
An order cannot be exported to QuickBooks if the customer associated with the order has not been exported yet (See “Export Customer List“.)
To export multiple Work Orders at a time, mark the checkboxes next to the WO#s and click the Export button. Select and deselect all lines at once by choosing the “Select All” and “Deselect All” buttons, respectively.
