App Can't find files to sync

My app wasn't syncing the correct file to my desktop, so I disconnected dropbox on the app, signed out on the app, signed back in. However, now the app is not finding any files to choose a sync with - the wheel keeps spinning.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Somehow this is now resolved. I deleted my moneydance sync file and the file on dropbox. Changed my moneydance file to don't sync>closed moneydance>reopened moneydance>reactivated sync w/dropbox and was able to successfully resync with the iOS app.

    I'm a fellow user.

    The process you took reset the syncing. The initial problem you had suggests that syncing had somehow become confused - something had gone wrong and it was not able to recover. Where and what has gone wrong I doubt if anyone could say.

    The action you have taken is what I believe would have been recommended to do.

    Ugh! Now any transactions added either to the app/or to the main file on
    my laptop are not syncing. Both the app and Dropbox are saying
    synced/files up to date. However, the transactions are not syncing.

    Anyone have a solution? I even tried disconnecting and reconnecting in the
    app. Closing Moneydance and reopening on the laptop to force sync.
    Somehow, Dropbox is not updating the only file I have in use for syncing.
