Move imported statements to another bank account or organisation in Xero
If you've imported statement lines into the wrong bank account in Xero, you can import them again into a new bank account or organisation. If you still have the original bank statement files (e.g. OFX, QIF, CSV), simply import these into the new bank account or organisation.
Move an imported bank statement to the right place
If you don't have the bank statement files, follow these steps:
Generate the Bank Reconciliation Summary Report for the bank account or organisation you’re taking the information out of.
On the Bank Statement tab, select the date range you want to extract.
Open the file and go to the Bank Statement worksheet.
Delete rows 1-5 and 7-8. Leave row 6.
Delete the closing balance row at the end of the spreadsheet.
Delete columns C, E, F and H.
Make sure you’re on the Bank Statement worksheet and save as a CSV. This will delete the other 2 worksheets we don't need. You’re now left with a clean data file.
Import the CSV bank statement file into the new bank account or organisation, making sure you assign the columns correctly.
- All statement lines will now show as ready to reconcile in your new bank account or organisation.
Delete bank statement from the bank account you originally imported it into, if this was a mistake.
