Good Afternoon,
When I try am open money dance I get the "Welcome to Moneydance" screen. At the bottom of this screen it says "When opening : Re-open Last File" This seams correct but I am lost as to where to look for this file or what file will open the program. I am using the Apple Version of your app. It would seem helpful to list the files used in this area to assist in location the correct file to open. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

    In general recent files, or files in the default file location, should be listed on the right side of the Welcome window. If this is not what you are seeing, you may have to use the open other option from the Moneydance welcome screen or the menu bar (File -> Open -> Open Other) to select your yourfilename.moneydance data set and remind the program where it is, after which it should remember.

    If you're not sure where you have been saving your data, it's likely still in the default file location, described at:

    Thanks for getting back to me. I searched for the Moneydance file and have successfully located it to use it for opening my Moneydance data.

    For your information there was no file to the right hand panel of the open screen.

    I am good to go, Moneydance is working again. Thanks for your assistance.
