We will run your file through our conversion tool and send it back to you as a .xlsx file.

The converted file may be missing information. You will need to add this missing information to be able to import your file into FastBound. This missing information may include some or all of the following.

  • Acquire Type – This allows you to filter your Bound Book into smaller Bound Books. Please see our help page for more information.

  • Addresses for Non-Licensee’s – If you acquired Items from a non-licensee, that address is not included in the export from FFL Boss. You will need to manually enter these addresses into the file. You can get the info from your FFL Boss account.

  • Expired or invalid FFL Information – Our conversion tool will attempt to get the FFL info and FFL expiration dates from your file. If our tool cannot do that you will need to update your file with the missing information.
