Transfers between accounts

I recently made a mistake and confirmed a lot of transactions that should have been merged with the proper account. Is there a way that I can return a confirmed transaction to unconfirmed status, so that I can correct my mistakes and merge the data. The majority of these transactions are transfers between accounts and between banks etc.

    I don't think so. The easiest way is to go to the backup that is made every time you quite MD and reopen that session again. Deleting the downloaded transaction may cause it to download again. It seems that some transactions will redownload if you merely delete them even after confirmation.

    Hi Tom,

    We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.

    To highlight the relevant transactions in the register, click on the first transaction, hold down SHIFT, then click on the last transaction, this will select multiple transactions, at once.
    To highlight non-contiguous transactions, hold down CTRL.
    Once the desired transactions are highlighted, right-click (CTRL-click for Mac) on any of them and from the resulting context menu, select Mark as Uncleared.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have further questions or need any assistance.

    Hi Maddy, et al


    Thank you very much for the information, it worked. I do have 1 quick question. I am setting up asset account(s) such as Coin collection, another for Real Estate, Vehicles, Furnishings etc. These will be used to track assets for Insurance, and Net Worth. Can you tell me how to classify assets so that they impact Net worth only. Currently I built an account under income …That skewed my income and expense accounts skewed my expenses. I do not see another option in Moneydance. Can you help? If you have any samples that I could see would be most helpful, as I may be going about this all wrong. BTW, I searched the Moneydance user guide 2015 as well as the online knowledge base with no luck..

    Hi Tom,

    As an example, it might be worth seeing this article of the Knowledge Base.

    Also, Transfers between Accounts might clarify the principle behind it.

    Please let us know if you have further questions or need any more assistance.
