A JournalEntry represents a general journal entry made directly in the company's chart of accounts.




A JournalEntry represents a general journal entry made directly in the company's chart of accounts.

A journal entry must include one or more JournalLines. To set credit or debit lines, first add an appropriate number of lines to the JournalLines collections." Then for each line, set an Account (Name or Id) and an Amount. You may set Entity to associate a customer or vendor with the line, and Class and Memo may be set as well.

Before adding the journal entry to QuickBooks, the transaction must be in balance: The total amount of the credit lines must be equal to the total amount of the debit lines. If the transaction is not in balance, QuickBooks will return an error.

If desired, you may set a RefNumber and TransactionDate for the journal entry as well.

Required Fields (Add):JournalLines

Supported Methods:Add, Get (Id), Cancel, Delete


JournalEntry1.RefNumber = "123";
JournalEntry1.TransactionDate = "2013-12-16";
JournalEntry1.JournalLines.Add(new JournalLine());
JournalEntry1.JournalLines[0].LineType = JournalLineTypes.jltCredit;
JournalEntry1.JournalLines[0].AccountName = "Trucks:Depreciation";    //*
JournalEntry1.JournalLines[0].EntityName = "Annual Depreciation";     //*
JournalEntry1.JournalLines[0].Amount = "3000.00";
JournalEntry1.JournalLines.Add(new JournalLine());
