Combining 2 company files

Our company has had 2 separate company files for many years. One holds some of the programs the company has and one holds the other. There are intercompany transactions, intercompany reconciliation items as well as employees that work for both companies.
Using enterprise (and paid for apps if needed) can the 2 company files be easily combined correctly into one company file? Has anyone successfully done this?

My bet is that it won't be easy

In a past life, we did something like this on another program - Macola, I think. Our IT and consultants ended up exporting the several separate companies into ASCII files, rejiggered everything there, then created a new company file to import/load the data. Not sure how QB would accomplish the task, but probably would require a similar strategy.

The first two utilities on this page will create a new file from an old file, with your choice of a starting date.

Data transfer alone will move transactions from one file to another

If it were me I would first get all transactions in one file, then create a new file with a start date of 1/1/16 and use that going forward
