I keep getting this message when I try to open the file transferred from another computer. See attached file. The files are copied per instructions on moving to a new computer, and it worked for another computer, but not the new one. All versions of MD are the same. I don't understand why this keeps happening. I have tried to copy the files repeatedly.

    There was a word doc attached that had a screen shot in it.  Here it is.

    That signifies a corrupt dataset.. Do you have a backup?
    How were you transferring the dataset?

    Just copying from one computer to another.  I've copied the entire
    documents directory under .moneydance, to no avail.

    On the original, use file/export backup. Copy the xxx.moneydancearchive file to the new computer. Then use file / restore from backup.
