    Most financial institutions will require you to enable your accounts for application-based online banking. You can accomplish this by asking your bank to set up your account for connections from Quicken. Moneydance uses exactly the same OFX server connection protocol as Quicken but your bank representative may not know this and mistakenly believe that they do not support Moneydance. Calling up your bank and stating precisely the following should get you started. "Please enable direct connect on my account such that I can connect to your servers directly with Quicken. Also give me the login credentials I need to connect Quicken to this service." You can also enable direct connect online by following these instructions.

    Once you are enabled, your user name and password should be the same as the one you use to log into the BoA website. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance, and thanks for your interest in Moneydance!
