Hi, Chris,

Very much looking forward to this--my bookkeepers are threatening to
move me to QuickBooks, due to reconciliation issues in 1.2 and earlier,
where transactions get unreconciled and then the reconciliation needs to
be re-done.

I attempted to upgrade to 1.3 over the holidays, but didn't find an
upgrade path--it looks like a lot of the upgrade scripts still need to
be written.

I did do some data wrangling in a spreadsheet, split out account
headings from accounts in the COA, and modified account_save() and
account_header_save() stored functions so I could import them and keep
the old ids (after I discovered how all the acc_trans used the chart id,
not the "accno"). I also was able to import acc_trans after fixing 3
transactions. And then I ran out of time to keep working on this.

So is there any guidance/documentation on how to import the other
crucial data from older installations? I could work on some upgrade
scripts, but it would be nice if I could get the gist of what needs to
happen, for the remaining critical stuff: ar, ap, invoice, gl, customer,
vendor, oe, parts...
