How can I remove/merge multiple A/R accounts into a single A/R account in QBO Plus?

I know QBO cannot have more than one Accounts Receivable account (I have read that here on the forums). Some background: I migrated from Quickbooks Desktop to Quickbooks Online Plus. Prior to migration I had 1 A/R account with a subaccount called Rent. This was done intentionally by me. I did not know I needed to merge the A/R and subaccount prior to migration. Now after the migration I actually 3 A/R accounts - the two I mentioned and a third called Auditorium Rental. I have no Idea where this A/R account came from. I do have, under revenue, an account called Auditorium Rental but I never explicitly created and A/R account with that name. Now, after migration, all new transactions that would create an entry in Accounts Receivable go in the the A/R account named Auditorium Rental. Further, the 2 original A/R accounts have transactions prior to the migration but nothing since.

How do I merge the transaction in the Auditorium Rental A/R account into the one named Accounts Receivable? Likewise the subaccount called Rent?

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.
