Can I change the vendor on several po's/bills/payments from last year and this year? They were erroneously made out to the packer instead of the correct vendor.

I am not getting this solution to work.  When I bring up the bill to view/edit, I am typing control H but it doesn't seem to do anything.  Then if I change the vendor it says this will remove linked transactions and I select OK.  Then it takes me to a screen that says DO you want to prefill this bill and overwrite your entries using values from this contract last bill?  If I answer yes, it changes the item details and gives me new dollar amounts - which I do not want.  So, if I choose NO, then it deletes the item details and leaves them blank.  Is there a way to just leave the item details that were already there?  Or am I going to have to recreate all the item details back to the original?  Sorry, I am a new user so need basic QB help here!

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.
