Why do you have 2 different files to merge? Why don't you just upgrade your old file?

MERGING A/R FROM 2016 TO NEW VERSION

Hi there, BRIAN2462.

 

I'm here to make sure you'll be able to combine accounts receivable from 2016 to a newer version in QuickBooks Desktop. 

 

You can manually import IIF files such as transactions to only one company. Before doing the process, make sure to back up your company file. hen, it is advisable to turn off any inventory features that you're currently using. You can switch it on after you import the changes.

 

Here's how to import IIFs:

 

  1. Sign in to your company file as an admin.

Note: If you’re in Multi-user mode, go to the File menu, then select Switch to Single-user Mode.

  1. Go to the File menu, then select Utilities.
  2. Select Import, then select Import IIF.
  3. Select the IIF file you want to import, then select Open.
  4. Select OK to confirm the import.

 

Aside from manually importing files, you might also want to consider the suggestions of  Fiat Lux - ASIA to upgrade your old file to a new one. 

 

For your future reference, here's an article where you can copy multiple transactions from one company to another: Copy Multiple Transactions From One Company File To Another.
