Moving Jobs in the Customer List

Q: I have a customer that turned over a property to another company. We work on about 15 different suites at this property. This property came under an “Add Job” for the 1st customer. If I change the main heading to the new company, it still stays under the original company, which puts it out of alphabetical order.

I am trying to move everything to the new company. Any suggestions?

A:  First, I would create a new Customer for the new owner. Fill in all of the contact information. Next, edit the Job or the property in question. Change the Customer name from the old customer to the new company we just created. Click OK.


The property should now appear indented under the new company.

If you have to edit more components of the Customer List, export it to Excel. From the File menu, select Utilities. Then Select Export and click Lists to IIF Files…

Modify the data and import the list into QuickBooks.
