In QuickBooks it is possible to merge accounts. Many times various accounts are made to represent the same type of item or expense. As an example you may have two expense accounts in the same chart of accounts called Repairs and Repairs Expense. Most likely the repetitive account was set up by another user that was not keeping consistent with the previous person handling the bookkeeping. Inexperienced QuickBooks users have a tendency to want to re-code each transaction and then delete the unwanted account. A much faster solution to this resolving this issue is to merge the accounts.
Merging can be done in any list or center (like the Customer Center, Vendor Center or Item List) that allows merging of list elements
