Switching from Quicken Mac - some weird transactions are messing me up

I imported all my accounts from Quicken Mac and at first I though it was fine but there is a random account on top of all my other accounts. It has no name but it has a balance of -448,693.80. The transactions in it are very random. Why is this here and how do I get rid of it without messing up all my other accounts?

    It looks like it's the starting balances from all my accounts

    Different versions of Quicken do different things with starting balances. it looks like this version used a hidden account to transfer in the starting balances.

    I see two options.

    1) Mark this account as inactive such that it is hidden in Moneydance.

    2) Delete this account. You will then need to set the initial balance for each of you accounts manually by editing those accounts.
