Convert lead through apex but should not create account


 i want convert a lead from apex without creation of account

how is it possible?

public class LeadClass{
    public static void doConvert(Id leadId){

        Database.LeadConvert lc = new database.LeadConvert();
        lc.setDoNotCreateOpportunity(True); //**IMPORTANT METHOD HERE**

        LeadStatus convertStatus = [SELECT Id, MasterLabel FROM LeadStatus WHERE IsConverted=true LIMIT 1];
        Database.LeadConvertResult lcr = Database.convertLead(lc);


No, you can't convert a lead without creating an account or attaching to an existing account. Many clients that have this need opt for Person Accounts, or, if they do not use that feature, have a dummy account that all "non-account contacts" are assigned to. Not assigning a contact to an account has a negative effect on sharing permissions.
