I have a Mac and would like to save my files on the Apple iCloud so I can access Moneydance from another Apple device without using Dropbox. Is this possible and if so how do I do it?

    Hi Peter

    You MUST NOT move your dataset to any cloud server iCloud, Dropbox etc, this can cause data set corruption. You can and should use a cluod server as a Moneydance automatic backup location in case your hard drive etc fails.
    Provided you do not want to sync your data to a mobile device, phone etc, you can use the Moneydance internal sync engine, use the sync method Shared Folder and use iCloud as the Shared Folder location to sync between computers. If, however you want to sync to mobile devices you must at least use a free Dropbox account.

    Hope this helps
