Export did not bring over category data for individual transactions.

    Did you follow these instructions:


    for importing your data from your QIF file? If not, I'd suggest going to File -> New in Moneydance, then going try importing your QIF again, making sure to select the option "File source: From another program" when import your data, to see if you get better results.

    I was importing from another "file" rather from another "program". Once I
    clicked the correct button everything came over as expected,


    Thank You

    I'm glad to hear that's been sorted out. The distinction between those two options is supposed to be whether the QIF file is from another program (like Quicken) versus something like downloaded from one's bank. The from another program option will bring in things like categories, but these typically are not present in files from banks.

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance,
