I am admin of an application and want to move a table from one app to another. Thought I am admin of both apps,  get this error? Anyone know what's up?          "The manager and/or owner of XXX is different from that of XXX. You will need to have the management/ownership transferred appropriately before proceeding

If you look at the Settings for Manage Application, and then Show App Statistics, there will be a pop up window to tell you who the Manager of the App is.  The manager has to match between the source and target apps.

Typically, what I would do is to make a copy of the app from which you want to move the table, and then using that Copy, make sure that the mangers of both apps match.  Depending on who the manager is of the target app, you could transfer the Copy Of app to that Manager of the Target App, and then they will get an email to accept.  or also email them to be sure they react right away.

OK, if you actually are listed as the Manager of both apps you will need to go to QuickBase support.  We are not talking about being in a a random Admin Role for each app, we mean the Manager.
