Brandon, MB -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/29/2019 -- The feature to merge two QuickBooks files into one is currently unavailable in QuickBooks. As each QuickBooks company file is distinct and varies from each other, it is not possible to completely merge two different company files.
However, there are a few work-around solutions that will help you combine data from one company file to the other. Using the advanced features in QuickBooks Enterprise, you can easily send the data that you want to merge with the other company file or you can create a report to combine data from both company files. This tutorial will show you how to merge QuickBooks company files the right way.
It is important to understand that while combining date files, the chart of accounts in both files cannot have the same account name with different types. For example, if one company file has an account with name 'Accounts Receivable' of type AccountsReceivable, the second company cannot have an account name with the name 'Accounts Receivable' of another type. To resolve this issue, rename one of the accounts to 'Accounts Receivable1'.
One way to do that is by identifying primary and secondary data files prior to the merge E-Tech's John Rocha, Technical Services Manager said. "The merge process involves two steps: Merging lists and merging transactions, and [the difference between the two is that if the list name is present in the primary file, it will be merged, if not, the name will be added to the primary file, whereas all transactions from secondary files are transferred to the primary file." Also, only one company file can have Payroll transactions. If both company files have payroll, the payroll transactions cannot be merged.
E-Tech offers an industry-standard solution to combine data from multiple company files into a single company file, with an audit performed after the merge to ensure that the transaction was performed accurately. This service works with all international versions of QuickBooks including the US, UK, Canadian, and Australian editions.
