  • Do you mean you want to reassign them from one user to another? Will this be a one off process or something that happens frequently? May 29, 2015 at 2:32
  • Hi Daniel, I should transfer these accounts as part of the initial test. If successful, then we should transfer a large number of accounts. But this is only for once.

As mentioned, using a tool like Workbench or Dataloader to do some data updates would most likely be the easiest method for you to accomplish this. You'll just need to export every object into a separate CSV, then change the OwnerId to from X to Y, and do a data update including the RecordId and OwnerId in your update. After you process all Accounts, Contacts, etc. then you are done.
