Moneydance is my first finance software package, so I don't have any prior knowledge of Quicken or MS MOney. I have downloaded a bank statement into MD as a quicken file type, , which is ok, but I need to assign the category type, groceries paycheque etc, which is also relatively easy.

But I have multiple transactions which will be assigned the same category - is there a shortcut? Also
Once I have assigned a category, when I download all future statements will Moneydance autmatically assign the correct category I have already assigned to this transaction type.

    Hi Brian

    I am afraid there is not a short cut to assigning categories to multiple transactions at once. However as you use the software and enter more transactions Moneydance will use your old transactions to predict suggest which category to assign. So the job should become less time consuming the ore you use the software.
