I have an old Finance programme by Moneydance called Tesco Personal Finance.
Would I be able to use my existing information on the new programme?

    Sorry Stuart I have no idea.

    Just starting with new computer.

    All info is on my old one which I will have to restart and look at it.

    Thanks any way.

    There was an old version of Moneydance that was rebranded for Tesco if memory serves.

    A useful piece of information to know is what is the filename your data is saved in. That could give us an idea of the latest version of Moneydance can import the data from it.

    According to this, it’s an ‘md’ file

    As such I would suggest you download the latest md2021.1(3069) and open the .md file. It should upgrade. If it works, then buy the upgrade license afterwards.

    The .md file types means a 2011 or earlier file format.

    You use the Import new account set option on the Welcome Screen to import this type of Moneydance file.

    As Stuart said download the latest release and try it out.
