How to use the command line mode (Automation)

The instructions below allow to use the Transactions app in the commandline mode. Use it to automate conversions.

How to activate the command line mode

The command line mode is activated when you pass parameters to the Transactions app.

On Windows, it would look like the following:

"path to properconvert.exe" "path to input file 1" "path to input file 2" /OPTIONS /OUTPUT="path to output file"

On macOS, it would look like the following:

/Applications/ "path to input file 1" "path to input file 2" /OPTIONS /OUTPUT="path to output file"

Command line mode options

Options are added with a slash (/) character in front and an optional value after the equals character (=):



This option sets the output file name. The value is required to activate this option. When this option is activated, the app does the conversion and closes without showing the user interface. The output file extension defines the file format by the file extension QBO, IIF, QIF, and so on. The output filename may include the full path to the file. All directories included in the path must be already created and accessible. When the path or filename includes a space, include the whole path in double quotes.

/OUTPUT="path to output file.QBO"


This option turns on OCR (optical character recognition) when processing PDF files. No value is required.


This option allows setting the CSV target for command-line processing.

/CSVTarget="Quickbooks Online"


This option sets the custom mapping for CSV input files.



This option sets the ending balance for formats supporting it (QBO, QFX, OFX).
