Expenses

Last year I made several payments to a vendor and expensed  them all to the wrong account.  I edited the vendors account settings to the proper expense account, but that do not change any of the individual payments to the correct account.  Do I have to change each check expense to the right one or is there a way that they can all be done at once.

I would  appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks Sharron

Expenses

Hello, kayesfor3.

 

If you don't need the wrong account anymore, you can merge both accounts so you don't need to transfer the transactions manually. Here's how: 

 

  1. In your chart of accounts, right-click the account which you no longer need.
  2. Select Edit Account. 
  3. Override the account name and change to make it identical with the new account. 
  4. You'll be prompted that the name already exist and if you want to merge the accounts. Click Yes on the prompt. 

However, if you still need the wrong account to record other transactions, you'll have to manually change the account of each transaction,

 

You can also share your preferred way of transferring transactions to our developers by sending feedback. Just click Help at the top, choose Send Feedback Online>Product Suggestion. 

 

Feel free to reach out to us again if you have additional question.
