reclassifying transaction account numbers

for the US but not one of the options but an answer for a Canadian friend appreciated

A QuickBooks question:

Is there a to make mass change in acct no's assigned to transactions?

For example 10 charges to travel throughout the year

Should have been meals

Need to change each transaction so a proper monthly transaction report can be generated so a simple JE re-class is not the answer

Rather than opening up each transaction is there a way to do multiple transaction at once? There is in quicken but I can't seem to find a way in QB

Hi James
Since you are a CPA - you may want to get the QBOA (for accountant's) version which you can do this in - it is called reclassify transactions.  You will get this version for free - just need to invite yourself as the accountant from the company file that you are currently working in.  I have provided a link below where you can sign up:

You will be able to support multiple clients from the QBOA. It is essentially the same as QBO just a few extra nifty perks that a regular QBO doesn't have - like the reclassify transactions that you are looking for. If you need more help with this - ask more questions.  Hope this helps : )

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
