Merging G/L Accounts

Subscribe to Syndicate

From the list window, you can select one or more accounts and merge them. This will take all the items in the database using the account and:
  • change it to the first account
  • Aggregate any totals into the new account

it could take a long time, especially if the account you are merging from has a lot of transactions (eg it was used for a play). Always try to merge into the most used account, and if you need to afterwards, rename/renumber the account you combined things into.

Accounts must be of the same type to merge them. Eg, you can only merge an asset account into an asset account, an income account into an income account, etc. Since is possible to change some account types (eg you can change liability to income). If you wish to merge disparate account types, then change the account type first.
