I am using MD 2019 and trying to import a CSV file from a brokerage account into my MD investing account. The Moneydance transaction fields that pop up when I try import the file are more appropriate for the MD bank and credit card registers (Date, Check#, Description, Debit Amount, Credit Amount, Balance) not for MD investing account register (Date, Action, Check #,Description, Memo, Security, Category, Shares, Price, Amount, Fees, Cash Balance). Where are the transaction fields that correspond to the MD investing register?

    That is because the Text File importer and the CSV importer do not work with Investment accounts. Investment accounts do not have a fixed table structure, the structure of the record depends on the action, and those actions are pre-defined.

    Mike Bray has written a importer for CSV files that will work with some transactions you can find it at:
