Setting up Syncing with a new file

I recently switched to a new Mac. My old Mac runs Moneydance version 2023.1. It was syncing Moneydance data using iCloud Drive, and I accessed this data via the Moneydance app on an iOS device. Before setting up the new Mac I disabled syncing on the old machine.

On the new Mac (running Mac OS Ventura 13.4) I performed the following sequence of steps:
* installed Moneydance version 2023.1 * transferred the Moneydance data file from the old to the new computer where I put it in the default location (/Users//Library/Containers/Moneydance/Data/Documents) * renamed the file * turned on syncing to iCloud Drive and quit Moneydance

I now want to reconnect my iOS device (iPhone) to the Moneydance file. However, in iCloud Sync Setup I can only select the previous
data file, not the new one with its new name. How can I solve this and set up syncing with the new data file?

Thank you for your help.
