Change RecordType -- PersonAccount to BusinessAccount by Flow or trigger

Does somebody have a work around for changing an PersonAccount into an BusinessAccount by changing the RecordType.

We cant do this by Workflow and run into an error. Is there any solution for accomplishing the RecordType Change?

I only find this solution but im not happy with this...--

Any idea?

Thank you best regards

Hi Sebastian,

It not support to change the record type from person to business account because the person account having personEmail, Lastname and some additional fields but the fields are not supported in business account. That is the reason you get an exception to change the record type to business.

Let me know if you need any help regarding this,
