How to move 6 yrs worth of Sam's transactions fr one credit card account to another?

For 6 years have had to go to Syncrony site to export Sams CCard transactions. Have now discovered that adding account and selecting "Sams Clubworld Elite Mastercard" as the institution connects to same account but with Express Connect capability. Set up asked to to accept account as "new" into Quicken. It did not give me the option to "link' account to my existing Sams account. So now I have TWO accounts for Sams CCard.

I would like to somehow transfer hundreds of transactions from old account to new. I tried selecting numerous accounts for typical transfer, but Q would not do it.

Any ideas?
Thanks

    I might have messed this up myself. After copying trans from old to new file, I removed old by "deleting" some and "cutting" others. Never pasted them anywhere. So as I said I restored Bk Up. Super Val then ran fine. So...I added the new account again, and copied and pasted trans again, and DELETED old. Looks good. Super Val looks good. I'd say mission accomplished.

    Thanks for your help

    Daggone It! Everything looked good until I re-started Q and saw lots of problems. Ran Super Val, reported corrupt QEL. Messed around for a while but ended up restoring 2 day old backup.

    For me I usually ran into problems with transfer transactions that were in any of the accounts.

     Only function used is register function and reports. NO, other Quicken functions or Sync being used.  ;)

    Just so you know the QEL data is the "unique Ids" that are stored for determining if a transaction has already been downloaded or not.  It is actually stored in a separate file that is in the .QDF file (the .QDF file is a compressed file like a ZIP file).  So even though it doesn't directly relate to the individual transactions, the very fact that it was messed up implies that something really got corrupted.

    This is different than a normal moving of transactions between accounts.
