I'm in the process of moving from MS Money to Moneydance on an iMac.

I've managed to transfer most of the accounts but I've got in a bit of pickle by opening two different Files - so under the File menu on the top of the screen, under Open I've got a choice of Finances & Personal Finances.

I just want one of these Files (or are they Accounts?) so how do I delete one without unintentionally damaging the other?

    Hi Gordon.

    Moneydance follows accounting rules.
    Within a transaction money can neither appear or disappear from nowhere, that’s called fraud.

    Hope this helps.

    OK thanks Derek, that explains why I'll always have large imbalances when importing to MD from MS Money.
