In QuickBooks, you have the ability to merge reports from two different company files. These reports can then display a wider range of data. Many companies with huge company files often get the files divided into multiple parts. They still might require a consolidated report of both the company files. In such cases, merging the reports of the two companies comes out as a clear winner.
Combining reports is easy in most versions of QuickBooks. For better analysis of data, it is recommended that the format of storing data in both the company files should be consistent. This will lead to formation of better analyzed reports. Accounts with same name will be combined when the report is being created.
Hence, you don’t have to worry about double entry of accounting data.
It is better to create such reports in multi-user mode. You may have to stay logged in into both the company files when the report is being created. Hence, you’ll have to stay logged into multiple files and this is only possible in multi-user mode.
Note: Please configure the multi-user mode properly before creating combined reports from two separate company files.

- Go to QuickBooks and select the Reports Menu.
