How to Reclassify Multiple Transactions in QuickBooks Online

In accounting, there are chances that multiple transactions are posted under the incorrect ledger. For Example, you have a vendor called Cal Gas and Electric that provides electricity. By mistake, all the expenses have been classified underwater expense instead of Electricity expense. It will be a cumbersome process in sitting and editing every single transaction. We have a savior in QuickBooks. In QuickBooks, there is a feature called Client Data Review (CDR) that enables one to reclassify multiple transactions at a time in QuickBooks. The CDR tool is available under the Accountant Menu in the Accountant Center. Prior to this CDR tool, you would have to sit down and pass a journal entry for each transaction reducing the water expense and increasing the Electricity expense. But with CDR this reclassification can be done with great ease. In this article, we will essentially guide you on how the reclassification of multiple transactions can be done in the QuickBooks.
