If you use Moneydance for your accounting, like I do, and need to move a shitload of transactions from an old Category to a new Category, I just tried this technique from Kevin N. in the InfiniteKind forum – and it totally works.
I have an old expense Category called:
“Business – Web & Graphics > Communications > Skype Calling”
This, and a couple of other Communication sub-categories, make up my current Communications category, and I want to consolidate/merge all these separate sub-Categories into one new Communication Category called:
“Business Expenses > Communication”
(I learned I can add Tags to each entry to differentiate between “Skype”, “Internet”, and “Cell phone service”, as well as “Graphics”, “Coaching”, and “T-shirts”).
Using Tags is awesome!
