What is the best file and format/spec for batch importing invoices into Quicken?

If there is a specification of the file format somewhere or an example file, someone can point me to, that would be great.

Which version of Quicken and OS?  You selected both Win and Mac categories when posting, so giving you a concise answer is not possible.

"Import" in what format?  As a PDF attached to transactions?  Or as data?

I need to do this. I am using Windows 7/10 with Q H&B 2017 R6.

I do not see an import option, but is this possible?

What are you trying to accomplish?

Do you want to import invoices into Quicken so you can pay them?

You need to be much clearer on what your expectations and needs are.  Then we can tell you whether your H&B can do it.
