    When importing the account. You have to tell the dtw what is it's parent/father. Example. You might have a level 4 account that you want to go under a level 3 heading.

    So then the line that has the level 4 account number in the import template you will fill the column called FatherAccountKey with the level 3 parent. All the accounts need to have the parent.

    Accounts on level 2 need to have the drawer as the parent. The Assets drawer has the code 100000000000000, Liabilities 200000000000000 and so on.

    Hope this helps 😊
