Merging Files.

Question:

Help! I have 2004 info on one computer while 2005 data has been entered on another. I want to merge the two without overriding any of the data.

Let me explain further;
I have some 2004 info on one computer and prior data from 2004 and before as well as 2005 data on another how can I merge the two without overriding and destroying it?

Please let me know if you can help ASAP. If this can't be done, my only alternative will be to re-enter 2005 year to date info.

Answer:

I am sorry, but there is no way that I am aware of to merge transactions from one file to another. You will need to reenter the transactions, or you can move balances by using a journal entry.

It is possible but you can spend a lot of time to program and set up the iif files. It's only worthwhile if you have quite a lot of transactions, say over a thousand.

I just recently did a data migration with a company that had commingled entites. If you want to know more, give me a e-mail with more about your circumstances.
