Hi there,

I'm trying to move my accounts to a new MacBook Pro. I have MoneyDance on the new computer. However, I cannot open my accounts on the old one. Where do I find the basic data file to copy and transfer?

    Your best best is to file/export backup. Copy that xxx.moneydancearchive file to new computer and then open that or file/restore from backup.

    just a user,

    Assuming the new Macbook Pro has Monterey on it, you might want to check if 2019.3(1880) will work properly with it. Mac OS upgrades have a tendency to break older programs.
