Dear MD, I've decided to just download my transactions manually instead of paying for direct connect with the various banks. I have installed the python extension (jpython.mxt) and get then try to run your remove all services script
root = moneydance.getRootAccount()
onlineInfo = root.getOnlineInfo()
while onlineInfo.getServiceCount()>0:
but I am getting this error:
There was an error loading the extension file: java.util.zip.ZipException: zip END header not found.

I there another way to do this ?

Thanks, Mike

    Hi Mike,

    If I understand you correctly you want to disable the ability for the account to connect to your bank's OFX (Direct connect) server.

    To remove online access for an account you can click on the account. Go to Online > Set up online banking > Disable button

    Hope this helps,

    Tony (Just another Moneydance customer, like you)

    Dear Tony, I have 10 accounts setup and none have a "disable" button.. That's why I tried the script...
    Thanks, Mike

    Ah, okay, I didn't understand the connection.

    For those that do, I think that it would help them if you could post your Moneydance version/build (Help > About Moneydance) and probably your OS.

    Good luck!

    Tony :)

    PS I did just see posts regarding your issue where the button wasn't available

    It's all gibberish to me, but this was the post that I was referring to that seems to have been written for MD 2015


    I'll now leave it for the experts! .

    Thanks, Tony - that's where I got the script... I'll just delete the accounts or create a new file... I'm just getting setup so no big deal...
