Both I, and a vendor I do business with, use GnuCash. It would save me a lot of labor if my vendor could send me an invoice file made by his GnuCash installation that can be read by my GnuCash installation and become a bill in accounts payable there.

Is there a way to do that?


What answer to dou expect? Yes, he CAN - it is possible. It is also unlikely because as a vendor he will streamline his operations, and your unusual request is exactly that - unusual. So time spent for no gain.

  • If he can, what is the procedure for doing so? Right now I have to manually enter a bill in accounts payable for every Invoice he sends me.

  • There may not eve nbe a prodecure - GnuCash is open souce, so you may have to extend the source code. But this makes it EXPENSIVE - not IMPOSSIBLE.

  • I can't see any way for a normal GnuCash user (your vendor) to export his invoice except as an HTML document, or of course as a printed form or PDF. Maybe with a deep dive into the source code it would be possible. However, you can ease your workload in creating a new invoice in GnuCash by "Duplicating" an existing invoice from the same vendor.
