  2. Select Accounts view.
  3. Locate an Account.
  4. Select Edit button and choose Financial Data option.
  5. In the Companies section, select Add Row button.
  6. Select Company XYZ.


The issue here is that you're trying to assign Company XYZ to a Account which was actually created out of the Company XYZ.

This is against standard business protocols because it could result in generating revenue from internal transactions, which goes against standard business practices and could potentially violate legal regulations.
