I recently updated to the latest Moneydance version, but now when I go to open my file the password is no longer working. What can I do?

    You upgraded from what version to what version?

    Are you sure the upgrade actually worked and actually converted the file format?

    I went from 2012 to the latest one.

    Not sure the upgrade worked. When I open the old file in the new version of Moneydance, it asks me to enter the password and then says it is wrong.,

    It’s a bug. Install 2021, open/convert your dataset in 2021. Once you confirm it’s working, then reinstall latest 2022 and go from there.

    Hmm I do not expect Moneydance 2022 will give any error with a password protected 2012 data set. My experience is that the password dialog box shakes at you as if to say no, no matter whether you enter a correct or incorrect password.
