QB Issue Resolution:
Try changing the name while it is still in other names. Add a 2 to the end of it for instance. Then convert to a vendor. Once it is converted to a vendor, rename to remove the “2”. It should prompt you to merge it with the already existing vendor (assuming you want them merged).
