Thanks very much Tony. I've only just upgraded from 2015 and never had any issues or need to find help before. I wonder if it's better for me to roll back to 2015 and wait for the fix. Anyway, thanks for the prompt reply - at least it's not me.
I can import a QIF file downloaded from my bank and using the following work flow don’t get new accounts created. Worth a try. Make an Export Backup in case you need it.
Before importing the QIF file make sure the correct account is highlighted in the side bar with its register displayed. This way the on import the correct account should be preselected in the Import To box. Check the other two settings and click import.
Let us know what happens.
In my case, the problem with 1860 isn't the creation of the new account, it was the fact that the "pointer" selection to the appropriate account wasn't maintained (i.e., I have to select the appropriate account on each download, it always defaults to the first account on the pick list, which is "imported XXX account").
Hi Guys thanks for the help. I have tried the preview version and - whilst not perfect it is certainly much better. I can certainly live with it. The pointer selection still defaults to the first account in the list regardless of having the account highlighted so I have to select it from the drop down list. Not a problem. The "imported bank account" appears in the drop down (it never did before) but when I select the right account for the imported statements the "imported bank account" is not created in Moneydance. So I no longer have to delete it everytime I download now which was a pain. Clearly something they'll fix as time goes on.
Sorry misread the file type. I was thinking of OFX files which include an ID that Moneydance can use to identify the account. Another account I have only provides QIF files which do not have an ID, or at least the one from my bank does not, so Moneydance can’t automatically select an account.
