Sage 50 (UK): Import the general ledger into MindBridge

  • Updated


This guide will cover the process of importing a Sage 50 (UK): Export the general ledger into MindBridge.


Note that the general ledger column mapping section of this guide is based on data exported using our Sage 50 (UK): Export the general ledger guide and after transforming using our Sage 50 (UK): Transform the general ledger.

Import data

  1. Import your general ledger file into MindBridge through the File Manager, or by importing directly to the General Ledger section on the Data page. For step-by-step instructions, follow our Import a general ledger guide until the Map Columns step.
  2. At the Map Columns step, map the Sage 50 (UK) fields as follows:
MindBridge Column Sage 50 (UK) Field Fields Used in MindBridge Used in Analytics* Notes
Account ID Account Number Required Yes  
Effective Date Date Required Yes Appears in format D/M/YYYY
Debit and Credit Debit and Credit Required Yes  
Transaction ID No. Recommended** Yes Please refer to our Transaction ID guide if one is not readily available. Also see note ** below this table.
Memo Details Recommended Yes This will enable the Empty Text control point and allow you to see the memo field for each transaction/entry.
Account Description Account Name Optional No Can be left out as this field will be picked up from the Chart of Accounts
Type Type Optional Yes  
User ID N/A Optional No Use to sort and filter results for reports.
Entered Date N/A Optional Yes  

* Optional columns, even if not used in the analytics, can be included for filtering and other visualizations, as indicated under Notes.

** Transaction ID is required but does not necessarily need to be in one single column. In the Review Data step of the ingestion process, MindBridge will recommend a transaction ID based on your data, or you can choose and/or combine different columns to create one. For more information: Understand Transaction ID and data integrity

Note: On the Review Data panel, ensure that you select Custom Running Total and use the Transaction ID column. Do not use the Smart Splitter when uploading a Sage 50 (UK) general ledger.
