Direct stock import for history not working

I downloaded the historical data for a stock I own and tried to use the import feature. I downloaded it directly from Yahoo, but it gives me an error. After the import, I get a window that says, "The import was successful, but 17 of 17 items were skipped due to errors." I didn't change the file format when I saved it to my drive from Yahoo, so it should be "right". I've attached the file I've tried to import.

Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

    Hi jsteffen2005,

    Thank you for supplying the CSV file.

    I was able to successfully import your CSV after adding the leading zero to the Date in the first row.
    For example, I changed 7/24/2018 to 07/24/2018. I left all the other dates as is.

    Moneydance looks to be entering the 'Adj Close' data into the 'Price' column.

    Well, that worked for me too. Thanks for the advice. Shouldn't it be able to understand the date even without the '0' in front of the data, especially since that is how the data came from Yahoo. That appears to be a bug that needs to be fixed.

    As for the Adj Close vs Close, in the data, both appear to be the same values so I'm not sure how you figured it was taking the Adj close over close.

    Either way, thanks for the help.
