Import Statement Files
This module is the successor of the module account_bank_statement_import that was part of Odoo Community until Odoo v13 and was moved to Odoo Enterprise for Odoo v14 (cf this commit). We decided to change its name and the name of the wizard object it provides in order to avoid a conflict with the Enterprise module.
This module has several additionnal feature:
- support multi-account bank statement files,
- attach the file to the bank statement (to facilitate the diagnostic in case of problem),
- improved error messages.
This module only provides the technical framework for the import of statement files. You must also install the format-specific modules to add support for the statement file formats that your banks/provide use. For example, the OCA module account_statement_import_ofx will add support for the OFX (Open Financial Exchange) file format. You will find those modules in the OCA project bank-statement-import or, for the country-specific formats, in the OCA localization projects.
Table of contents
To import a statement file, go to the Invoicing dashboard: on a bank journal, you will see a button to import a statement. When you click on that button, a wizard will start and it will show the list of the supported file formats. Select the statement file that you want to import and click on the Import button. Odoo will create a new bank statement (or several if your statement file is a multi-account file).
If your statement file contains transactions that were already imported in Odoo, they will not be created a second time.
If the statement file contains information about the bank account number of the counter-part for some transactions (only a few statement file formats support that, in some countries) and that these bank account numbers exists on partners in Odoo, the partners will be set on the related statement lines.
