When the sync method is greyed out it means it’s a Secondary data set that way synced to a Primary data set using FILE (MONEYDANCE on Mac) – NEW – OPEN SYNCED FILE or a restored backup of the same.
Try installing the Toolbox extension (by Stuart) under EXTENSIONS - MANAGE EXTENSIONS then run Toolbox. On opening Toolbox it will tell you it’s a secondary data set then you can you use a Toolbox feature to convert it into a primary data set.
EDIT our posted crossed by using QIF you will have lost a lot of data. I suggest you go back to your secondary data set and use Toolbox, no data is lost this way.

I'm glad to hear that it seems to be sorted out. However, I would point out that the method you used would result in some amount of data loss. If you only had relatively simple checking accounts, everything may have come over ok. But QIF files don't contain information about budgets, bank connection information, reminders, and many other features in Moneydance (those file types simply aren't designed to hold that kind of information). If none of that information is important to you, you can continue with what you have, but I would advise trying the suggestion Derek described above if you use any functions in Moneydance beyond simply tracking bank accounts.
