How can I import transactions without a default category?

I am testing out the program and downloading many transactions using moneydance plus. I just used "atm" as the default as there was no blank option. Is there any way to download the transactions as blank and then fill in the blank categories??

    Moneydance will not allow an empty category.

    The software is based on double entry accounting which means that the transaction has two sides. The category field provides the other side of the transaction.

    You could certain create a category called "Blank" or "Empty" and assign this as the default category.
