I keep getting duplicate transaction with Vanguard. It's not consistent and doesn't happen every time. The transactions don't exactly match either in the detailed view. Can't figure out how to copy or attach detailed views of the duplicating transactions.

    I'm not sure I can help, but for others, please post your OS (Mac, Windows, Linux) and the MD version and build.
    I have a Vanguard account and have not seen any duplicates.

    I have Big Sur 11.1 and MD 2021 (2006). This has actually gone on and off for years and I finally got fed up. It doesn't happen with every Buy transaction but it does most.

    I think it might have something to do with the way Vanguard reports a withdrawal from my checking account for the purchase and the actual purchase itself.

    OK, I think I know what you're talking about.
    In my case, I have an auto-invest setup at Vanguard.
    They initiate an EFT withdrawal from my bank then they do the BUY.
    The BUY is added as a debit in my Vanguard cash (Money Market) account, which is resolved when the EFT is posted.
    Next, it goes through what I've heard called the sweep to balance the account.

    When the transactions are downloaded by MD, the funds I transferred via my checking account are reported back as cash. I cannot find a way to have that associated with the EFT to Vanguard. Hence a duplicate transaction.

    Sorry, I've had no luck figuring it out. Perhaps another user has a suggestion.

    Maybe you have a different problem.

    Maybe I'm confused but I thought this was the venue to get support from IK. Is there another way to contact them?

    With the general forums either other users or Moneydance staff can respond, you posted in a general forum.

    The private forum is the place that only you and the Moneydance staff can see and post to the questions you raise.
