Apologies if this has been discussed earlier.

How can I access the data from outside the MD app using Java?

If you have a sample or guide, it will be amazing.

I'm trying to get all the data out and into a MySQL Database.

In the past, I did this with an Add in, made using Java, that will export each major data component to CSV files, but it's cumbersome, and I just want the data exported automatically.

    Slightly tricky and NOT supported by IK.... (and do not update data)...

    Read the section "Experimental / advanced:" here:

    and also this post:

    I'm trying to access the MD file to export the data.

    Attached is what I have until now. The idea is to get the root Account Name and description, but I'm getting the following error:

    Export Process Start . . .
    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/moneydance/apps/md/controller/sync/AbstractSyncFolder
    at App.main(App.java:45)

    ... 1 more

    I think I need to key in the passphrase or similar....Can you help me?
