Error "You cannot import QuickBooks Pro Timer data for a different company."

Occurs: When trying to import a Timer Activities file into QuickBooks exported from the Zed Timesheet app, the following error message is displayed "You cannot import QuickBooks Pro Timer data for a different company. Please open the correct company file"
 
Cause: The error is due to the IIF lists you loaded into the Timesheet app not matching the QuickBooks company file you are trying to import the Time Activities into.  QuickBooks will not permit you to import the file.
 
Resolution: You can either:
 
  • Check to make sure that you have the correct QuickBooks company file open (ie the file that you exported the IIF lists from): or
  • Edit the IIF file you are trying to import into the QuickBooks so that the COMPANYCREATETIME field matches instructions on how to do that here
