Hi
Returning to MD and Is it still not possible to get a listing of all my repeat scheduled reminders? I have many and printing the calendar is simply not an option as I have some monthly, bi monthly, quarterly, half yearly, yearly and two yearly reminders. PLEASE tell me it is possible. I have put all the data in, it would be good to be able ro get it out again on paper when needed.
Cheers....

    Hi Tonyt

    Another user Stuart Beesley has put together a python script to export a list of reminders to a CSV file. Full credit to Stuart.

    Download attached file “extract_reminders_to_csv v3.py”

    Click on WINDOW – SHOW MONEYBOT CONSOLE.
    The new window has two sections. You may need to move the vertical partition to the right so you can see fully the window on the left.
    In this window click OPEN SCRIPT and navigate to and OPEN the downloaded file and then click RUN.
    A new window will open to allow you to select the location to which the CSV file will be saved. Click EXTRACT.
    In the next window select the date format – OK.
    The left window will list the reminders exported to the CSV file.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Derek
    Thanks for the info, good news. I still think a mature program should have This sort of facility hard wired in.
    Never used a script! Do I install this from within MD? Does it show up in the extensions list? How does it link to my MD file?
    Sorry to be a pain but need more guidance if possible.
    Look forward to hearing soon.
    Cheers....

    Hi tonyt

    It is not a feature that shown up under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSIONS.

    Assuming you have downloaded the script you can take the next step.

    To run the scripted open Moneydance in the normal way, so it opens your data set.
    You then run the script from within Moneydances as I described in my earlier post, that is:

    Click on WINDOW – SHOW MONEYBOT CONSOLE.
    The new window has two sections. You may need to move the vertical partition to the right so you can see fully the window on the left. see screen shot.
    In this window click OPEN SCRIPT and navigate to and OPEN the downloaded file and then click RUN.
    A new window will open to allow you to select the location to which the CSV file will be saved. Click EXTRACT.
    In the next window select the date format – OK.
    The left window will list the reminders exported to the CSV file.

    Hope this helps.
