I imported my Quicken QIF and somehow my dividend payout is doubled in cash. I can correct this but why is this happening.

For example

Dividend payout is 12 euro. It is doubled in cash value to 24 euro

    None, only a DivXfr and Xfr. the amount is for example 50 and cash is the 100

    This is a long term issue for QIF imports. Moneydance does not properly import all action entries, especially for investment accounts. I brought this up in November 2019, and it still exists as a problem.

    There is a VERY VERY long thread on this topic - primarily associated with how to make everything work. Given its length, I will point you to it if you ask (or search for vicissitudes)

    Yep - that's exactly what happens on a QIF import of action items like that into an investment account.

    One line from my Nov 2019 thread:
    "In fact it is doubly bad, as it ends up being a BUYXFR in Moneydance, so that ends up doubling the cash change."

    I corrected it by doubling the corresponding Xfr entry. This also corrected my corresponding bank account balance.

    Also had some issues with split transactions but i corrected them.

    Thx, just checked how many there where. It were only about 10 dividend items. I just entered them manually and deleted all the double items which I already corrected.

    I really like the syncing of Moneydance. With Quicken I have to copy the files with Onedrive between computers. Furthermore, Quicken is more for the US market and some options just don’t work with euro accounts like the mobile app.

    Have a nice Sunday and thx for your advice and posting information.
