NullPointerException when importing data

Hi. I have used Banktivity for several years and i'm trying to find something else that will work better for me. I used Quicken Mac 2017 for the last couple of weeks but I'm hoping Moneydance will be better. So...first of all, I have several accounts (checking, credit card, loans, investments) with data going back to 2005. I exported my data in qif to import into Quicken. That import went pretty well, but I had to do some cleanup. I have tried importing that same qif into Moneydance with no luck. I get a NullPointerException error. I have also tried exporting the data in qmtf format from Quicken with the same result. Does anyone have a way for me to get my data into Moneydance? Thanks in advance!

    I am not support staff, just a user.

    You could try updating to the latest 2017 beta version as some fixes were added in this version at
    Did you find the articles relating to importing Quicken using QIF files at

    Hope this helps.

    Are you trying to import data from the Welcome screen?

    If so try a different approach, create a new data Set: File --> New on the menu

    Then once this has been done try using the File --> Import menu item

    and see what result you get.
