Converting From Timeslips 9 or 10 for Windows

Timeslips 9/10 Conversion

You can convert your client information from Timeslips* 9 or 10 for Windows into a format that the RTG Bills conversion program can read.

We have created a "report template" that defines the report you need for the conversion. The report template is named rtgcsv.rpt. Download the report template into this folder:

C:\Program Files\Timeslips\Report Templates

This assumes that Timeslips is installed in C:\Program Files\Timeslips. You should see other templates (.rpt files) already in this folder.

Note: If your browser doesn't offer to save the file when you left-click this link, then right-click instead and choose Save Link As or Save Target As from the menu that appears.

Follow these instructions after you have downloaded the report template:

  1. Start the Timeslips program:
    Start > All Programs > Timeslips > Timeslips
  2. From the menu, choose:
    Reports > Reports
  3. You should see the Reports window. Click the Client tab.

  4. From the list of reports, select Client Detail from Report Designer. Click the Set Up This Report button.

  5. You should see the Set Up Report window. Click the Formats tab.

  6. You will see two columns, with the headings Name on the left and Settings on the right. The first row below these headings says
    Report template file path
    in the left column. At the end of this row is a button (in the Settings column). Click the button.

  7. You should see the Select Report Template window. The list of filenames should include the one you downloaded, rtgcsv.rpt. Select that file and click the Open button.

  8. Now you should be back at the Set Up Report window. The first row of the table should now show Report template file path in the column on the left and rtgcsv.rpt in the column on the right.

    At the bottom of this window, there is a drop-down list box labeled Print to. It probably says Display now. Click the button to see the list and select File - comma delimited (CSV).

  9. Click the Print button. You will see the Save As window. You are about to save a file with the Timeslips data in it. We want that file in the RTG Bills folder with the name tortg.csv. Perhaps the easiest way to do that is to type the name directly into the File name box:
    C:\Program Files\Rtgbills\tortg.csv
    assuming RTG Bills is installed in C:\Program Files\Rtgbills. Then click the Save button.

  10. After the file is created, you should see the Set Up Report window again. Click the close button (the X in the upper-right corner) to close the window.

    You may be asked if you want to save the changes you have made. This is a good idea because you might need to make changes to the data in Timeslips and create the comma-delimited file again. Click Yes.
