How do I combine 2 vendors?

It is the same vendor but I have 2 separate vendor acts because of a mis-spelling.

I realize this is a two-year-old thread but I am having the same problem.
I have no problem merging vendors using premier versions up to and including QuickBooks Desktop Premier 2014. I discovered you could not merge vendors in QuickBooks Desktop Premier 2015 or 2018 if they have any transactions. I believe this is a bug in the program and it has to do with having multi-currency turned on (I think).

Multi currency could result in different currency transactions between the two vendors you wish to merge.

 Brute force method. Go into actual transactions of the vendor with the least number. Edit each to new vendor. It might get sticky with bills and bill payment applications, but that is what it is. Once you get to point where vendor has zero transactions you can delete it or merge or rename and make inactive. Then you are left with just the one vendor

This may be true however; it is NOT true in my case. Both vendors are the same currency.
I never had the problem of merging vendors until I starting using Premier 2015. I have been using Multi currency since Quickbooks introduced it back in around 2002 or so.
The "OK" command button does nothing in the edit vendor form when trying to merge vendors. Merging customers is no problem. This makes me think there is a bug in the software.
