In QuickBooks, the Rep field is 5 character limit. In Salesforce, we need to make sure the Alias should not be more than 5 character.

Below mentioned steps to update the DBSync mappings

But if you want the changes to reflect for the historical accounts then need to create a new rule (Update rule). Please find the below steps to create an update rule for updating the account owner to customers who have already synced to QuickBooks.
