I follow the directions for importing a QIF file from Quicken using New Account and From Another Program.
When the import is executed I receive a message: error reading file: Jave.lang Null Pointer Exception.
So the file doesn't upload.
Any suggestions

    There have been reported that there can be problem when importing from the Welcome Screen, the following has been suggested as a possible solution.

    "Are you trying to import this data via the Moneydance Welcome Window. We have had reports that the current build of Moneydance encounters difficulty when trying to import from the Welcome Screen, the developers are working to rectify this.

    In the meantime, can you select 'Create a new account set' and then create a new blank data set. Once the blank data set has opened, can you navigate to File --> Import and attempt to import your QIF file this way?"

    Why release this to the public if you know you have a significant problem with importing from Quicken. Biggest method of turning someone away from your product if it initially fails. I've been at it all morning trying to import Quicken file, once I was finally able to get the accounts to import is was jumbled mess. Too frustrated to continue.
