 It can be achieved by two ways.

  1. Using your own File
  2.  Export and Modify

FAQ


  • Will it add more Line item Details or replace it? 

          It will replace it. So please provide all ACCOUNT and PRODUCT LINE ITEM DETAILS.


  • I just want to update incorrect Date, Shipping address. Do I need to provide and map all the details like Line Items, etc.?

     You don't need to. You need to have two columns. One with Reference No, other with Invoice Date or Shipping Details.
