Sage has a DATEV interface that can be used to import booking records.

## What export method is used to import data into Sage?

For Sage, the DATEV format CSV is used. Instructions on how to create this in CANDIS can be found here.

*Important**: For the import, the DATEV import must be activated by Sage. For more information, please contact Sage or your system house. *The activation is subject to a fee.

## Where is the import located in Sage?

In your Sage** finance,** you will find on the left in the navigation bar the

**Functions**,**Period-end closing**and under that the**Datev import.**

*Note**: CANDIS uses the accounting logic of DATEV and an account assignment can only be implemented with the following logic: *

*All account payable numbers have a uniform length of 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 digits.**The associated G/L accounts are each one length shorter.*

*Example**: An account with an account payable number of 7 has G/L accounts with 6 digits and less. In Sage, the G/L accounts have a leading zero, so the payable account number 7000000 has an associated G/L account 0680000. If these requirements are met, then nothing stands in the way of a successful import!*

*Leading zeros are not taken into account in CANDIS, but are added when importing into Sage. *
