Yesterday I did a Direct Connect download and received a Buy transaction that I made from Vanguard. I do not have an associated bank account for the fund as the funds come from an account outside Moneydance.

Today MD downloaded from Vanguard a supposed Xfer transaction from one of my checking accounts into the Vanguard account for the same amount as the Buy transaction. In my checking account there was no "o" to indicate it was a bank transaction, while there WAS that indicator in the Vanguard account and the transfer field indicated the name of my checking account. How to you set up investment accounts when you fund them from outside Moneydance?

I just checked and the default category for that investment account is blank.
