Multiple Moneydance Files

I have just downloaded the trial version of Moneydance and am trying to see if I can use it in place of Quicken 2009 (which I am very dissatisfied with!).

In Quicken, I have 2 different files - one for my accounts and one for my mother-in-law's accounts. I tried to import a second file but it put the accounts into the one existing Moneydance account that I created.

Am I doing something wrong or is it that I need the full version in order to do this?

    Hi Barbara

    I am not exactly sure I understand what you are trying to achieve.

    If you want to have two separate moneydance file one for your self and one for your mother-in-law then you should create a second moneydance file for your mother-in-law's account with in Moneydance. Do this by selecting File-.New within Moneydance and then import her accounts into the new file.

    If you import both of your quicken files into a single Moneydance file, Moneydance will attempt to combine them. I think it is unlikely that this is what you want as it would then be difficult to determine which expenses and income were yours and which your mother-in-law's.
