Importing is done either by using the appropriate File>Import command, or by pasting the data if it has been copied in a suitable format onto the clipboard.

You can import accounts, budgets, names, products, transactions and job information. The information can be sourced from other applications such as a word processors, spreadsheets, databases or even other accounting programs (provided they have an export capability). It can be simple text (csv or tab delimited), or xml.

MoneyWorks will always check the data being imported, and will discard any information that has errors. For most imports you have the option of rejecting the entire import file if any errors are found, or just the records that are in error (which are written to a new file so they can be identified and corrected).
