I've mistakenly entered a full years worth of bank transactions (checks and deposits) into the wrong bank account. Can I move them in mass to the proper bank account?


Hi davidjhaddow,

At this time, you can only move your bank transactions one at a time. You can go to your bank register and do it from there. Let me guide you with the steps.

  1. Click Accounting on the left menu.
  2. Select the correct account and click View register.
  3. Look for the transaction.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Change the account to the correct one. 
  6. Click Save and close.
You can do the same thing with the other bank transactions. 

You can also use a Journal Entry or the Transfer feature in QuickBooks Online. However, I recommend reaching out to your accountant's advice on the accounts that you'll use.

I have this article for future reference: How to Reconcile Accounts.

Let us know if you need anything else. I'll make sure to get back.

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.
