In MYOB Accountants Enterprise (AE) and Accountants Office (AO) Ledger, you can create a ledger using a number of pre-determined account charts or you can select to have a blank chart and subsequently import the required account codes.

You can import account codes from a comma separated variable (CSV) file format with the following column headings:

Code, Description, Account Group, GST Type, Opening Balance, Opening Balance Date.

Here is a sample of the csv file format. Ledger chart import.csv
