imported transactions to wrong checking account

JudyO Member ✭✭

I downloaded transactions from my bank and accidentally imported them into the wrong checking account. What's the best way to fix this? I haven't accepted any transactions yet. If I accept them all and then delete them all, and then import the correct downloaded transactions, will that fix the bank balance?

I'm using Windows 10 Enterprise Version 52.28, Build

    Hello @JudyO,

    First, were these transactions imported through a QFX file, or through an automatic download set up such as Express Web Connect or Direct Connect?

    Check back and let us know!

    The best way would be to restore a backup from before. Then import them again. You should be making frequent backups.

    One easy way to move all the misplaced transactions:

    1. Select all of them (select first row, then scroll down and shift-click on the last row)
    2. Right-click (on any selected row) to bring up the menu
    3. Select "Move transaction(s)", then select the desired account from the drop-down list, select OK.

    That should do it. I've done this many times.
