NOTE: If the record has information that only pertains to one record type, it will be lost if converted to the other record type.

OR

  1. Create a new individual record populating a name and any required fields.
  2. Merge the necessary information from the original individual to the new individual.
  3. Convert the new individual record to an organization.
  4. Merge the necessary information from the new organization to the original organization record.

    NOTE: The example above was in the context of merging information from an individual record to an organization. To merge from an organization to an individual just switch the words 'individual' and 'organization'.
