Transferring financial data from another application into Moneydance
requires that the data first be exported from the other application
into a QIF file.
Many financial applications have the ability to export their data to
QIF files. This export function is usually located under the File
menu of programs like Quicken or Money.
Once the data has been exported into a QIF file, use the
Tools->Import->Quicken Interchange Format (QIF) menu to open the
QIF import dialog in Moneydance. Use this dialog to import the QIF file that
was exported from the other application.
Importing a QIF file into Moneydance will automatically create the categories
and accounts that were included in the QIF file. It will also add all of
the transactions from the QIF file into Moneydance.
Due to limitations in the QIF file format, it is possible that some transactions
(especially transfers between accounts) may have been duplicated during the
import process. If the balances in Moneydance and your other application do
no match up exactly then it may be necessary to find and remove a duplicate
transaction or two.
