Record Key Changes Program
into our software is the ability to re-assign and/or merge records

records can be merged together, and all tables and history referring to
the original record will be changed to the new one specified.
Moving Invoice History between Accounts
may have been produced for customers under a Miscellaneous or Cash
Sales account previous to an account being established. It may be
