Errors on transfer

I tried to migrate my accounts from Quicken and I was able to see the list of accounts but no content in them unless I individually migrate account by account - this is too cumbersome - is there something I missed.

    Hi Marni,

    If you're exporting your data from Quicken, and importing to Moneydance, we'd recommend following the steps in this article. Can you try to follow these instructions and let me know if you encounter any difficulties?

    I was finally able to do it - so does Moneydance download directly from banks or do I need to export then import the file? I have many accounts - do I have to do it one by one?

    Hi Marni,

    Which banks are you trying to connect with?

    You can view a list of our supported financial institutions here -

    If your bank is on the list, this means they support direct OFX connections. You can setup online banking with these banks within Online --> Set Up Online Banking. Then select 'New Connection' and choose your financial institution from the list.

    Unfortunately, if your bank is not listed, they do not support direct OFX connections, which Moneydance (and other financial software) requires in order to talk directly to a bank.

    The best way to get your files into Moneydance is to use a web browser to download them from your bank's web site. You can download into QFX, OFX or OFC files (aka Quicken or MS Money files), any of which will import cleanly into Moneydance.

    You can also open your bank's download page directly (after entering the appropriate address in the Account --> Edit Account menu) by going to the menu bar and selecting Online --> Open Account Website, which makes the download process easier.

    That option is greyed out in the Online tab.

    You will need to first open the register of the account you want to set up a connection for by clicking on it in the left ssidebar. Then those options should be available.

    I looks like you don’t support RBC Canada anyway.

    Hi Marni,

    Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that RBC Canada supports direct OFX connections.
    With any banks that do not support this feature, you can download data from the banks website as I detailed in a previous reply.
