Import of file aborted in Controller 8.5.1

I am receiving the following error when importing a journal in Controller 8.5.1:

“The file contains an error. Import of the file was aborted.
The booking type for given company is invalid.”

Any help would be very much appreciated.


Controller logs a lot of useful information in the event log on the controller application server and sometimes on the client computer. So import the journal again and check the event logs. Also check the syntax of the items in the journal file. Where did you get this journal file?


It ended up being an issue with importing to a number of journal types (templates).
Messed around with the configuration a bit and decided that group journals will have to be entered manually to bypass the issue.


Thanks for sharing Thom! :slight_smile:
