how do I copy only certain transactions to another file?

I need to transfer some of the project/job files to another one because it's getting too full.  Once I copy it, would I be able to safely remove those files from the original file?  What would be the best way to do this?  I want to be able to access all files.
Thank you

If you click on the first entry, then go down to the last entry & shift+ Left click, all of the entries will be highlighted.  Then Right click and select "copy transactions".  Then go to the account you want to transfer them to Right click again & select "paste transactions"

You can delete them later by highlighting them again & right click & select "Cut Transactions"  As always, recommend that you backup your data before you try to make major changes - just in case.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
