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 http://infinitekind.com/moneydance2017beta
    Did you find the articles relating to importing Quicken using QIF files at http://help.infinitekind.com/kb

    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.
