Currently, there is no option in QuickBooks to change a name type from anything other than Other Names.
There are two options available if you need to change a name type.
Option 1: Delete the name and recreate it under the proper name type. This works if no transactions exist for the name.
Option 2: Make the name inactive and recreate it under the proper name type. Use this option if there are transactions associated with the name.
IMPORTANT: Only Other Names can be changed to another name type (Customer, Vendor, or Employee) and once this change has taken place, the name type can no longer be altered.
