How to merge two duplicate books into one folder?

I am hoping to learn how to merge two duplicate books into one folder in the calibre library?

Here is the situation:

I had imported a PDF version of the book into Calibre. It then built a folder for it in the Calibre Library. I then converted the PDF to a MOBI file and now two files sit in the same folder.

I then discovered another third party application that can convert PDF files better than Calibre. So I created a new version with a prc extension.

When I added the new version to Calibre, it created a new folder for it. Even though the title, the author and the metadata details are the same.

I wish to have the PDF, MOBI, and PRC in the same folder in Calibre--instead of it showing like a duplicate entry in Calibre.

In the GUI library list select the book with the best meatadata then hold the control key down and select the book you want to merge into the first book. Press M. The second selected book will now be part of the first selected book. The prc will now be sitting with the PDF and Mobi in the same book record.

Or, select the book in the library and drag prc to book details panel.
