Make existing account listed for QBO import

An existing account is not available in QuickBooks to select during QBO import

QuickBooks uses the account type from the QBO file to show existing accounts. If you set account type in CSV2QBO, PDF2QBO or other 2QBO converter to "Credit Card," QuickBooks will show you only existing credit card account. You can recreate the QBO in the converter by selecting correct account type.

QuickBooks uses the account # (account id, account number) and INTU.BID value together from the QBO file to associate with the account in QuickBooks you choose for the first QBO file. If you are converting for MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS, make sure to use different account # when converting to QBO files.

If your existing account is currently "linked" to direct bank download, you need to edit the account in QuickBooks first as QuickbBooks does not import QBO files on already linked accounts, and the account has to be unlinked first:

Unlink direct download in QuickBooks on PC

Unlink direct download in QuickBooks on Mac
