I have a loan account that I have been paying down for some time now.

How do I set it up in moneydance, so that the APR, payment and interest calculations are accurate,
but I bring it to current state, without having to enter all payments I have made so far?

    This all fixed itself after I went out of and back into the account. Still, not exactly intuitive.
