Moving Memorized Transactions In QuickBooks®

We recently had a situation where we needed to combine three QuickBooks® company files into one single  file.  Overall this wasn’t extremely difficult and we had a plan in place to take care of all the tasks at hand; that was until we got a look at the list of memorized transactions that the client wanted to include.

QuickBooks® allows you to export most of the available lists, but the Memorized Transactions list is not one of them.  Fortunately there are a couple ways to get your Memorized Transactions from one file to another.

The first way that you  can accomplish this is to remove all transactional data from a copy of your file and once complete use this as the base for your new file.  The second way to handle this issue is to run all your memorized transactions with a date in the future.  Then use a tool such as the Data Transfer Utility by Karl Irvin to transfer those transactions to your new file.  Once they have been copied you can then memorize them and you will now have a new Memorized Transactions list.

If neither of these works for you then you have one option left, and that is to manually recreate all of your memorized transactions.  If you would like to use one of the methods above and need assistance please feel free to contact us, we’d be happy to help.
