Import/Export errors from IN 4.4.2 to 4.5.17


I’m migrating my Invoice Ninja (4.4.2) data to another (new) install (4.5.17).

I’ve exported Clients and Invoice from the old install in two separate CSV

Importing em back, clients worked fine, but invoices totals are not matching up.

Example, invoice says 38,861.68$ while the actual invoice is 305$

Not sure how this happened.

Both are self-hosted (I paid for whitelabelling)

Would there be any other best technique to import/export ?

I thought import/exporting from the same program would not cause these kind of issues.

I’ve also made sure to recreate tax rates.
