Removing Vendors from Quickbooks Desktop

I discovered that our Quickbooks Desktop has some vendors that are entered in different ways multiple times: Neat, The Neat Receipt, The Neat Company.


When I tried to rename some checks so that everything can be identified as The Neat Company, I discovered that some of the checks were bill payments.  Because I renamed the check to "The Neat Company", that change now triggers for the bill to be indicated as "not paid" and awaiting payment.



1. Is there a way to redirect a check that was paying off a bill,  to demonstrate that the bill was paid to the new name "The Neat Company" instead of "Neat".

2. Is there a better method to make these changes so that all I can remove the wrong vendors in the system?

hopefully you made a back up before making those changes

restore the back up

edit the vendor name and make it exactly the same as the vendor name you want to keep, save

that will merge the unwanted vendor name with the correct vendor name and transaction will follow the merge
