Click on the button to browse to the location and select the file. (You can import Cashflow Manager Data or backup files).
Click on the [Browse] button, it will automatically look at the Cashflow Manager Data Folder of the previous program you were using (e.g. Version 10). The Files of type field will be looking for either data (.cf_) or backup (.bc_) files.
Navigate to the location of the file you wish to import.
When you have selected the file click on the [Open] button to return to the Cashflow Manager wizard.

Click on [Save] to save your file.
Your file will now be imported. The speed at which your file is created will depend upon the amount of data in the imported file and the speed of your computer. A ‘progress bar’ will indicate the progress.
