I'm wanting to purchase Money Dance for my MacBook Pro. I do not have Microsoft Office and need to know if I must have it to run Money Dance??

    No, you do not need Microsoft Office to run Moneydance. Did you read that somewhere on our site?

    No, I did not read it on your site. I'm new to software used for personal
    finance, so, I'm researching what is best for me as a Mac user. I need
    something simply and intuiative to use, because I come from using paper and
    pencil for recording expenses.

    Hello Cynthia,

    I encourage you to download our free trial version from and experiment with the program before you decide if you would like to purchase it. The demo version is fully functional and allows you to manually enter 100 transactions. Imported transactions are not limited, so you'll be able to fully test things like importing from other programs and connections with your bank. If you decide to purchase the program at a later date (from you can keep all your data, the license key simply unlocks the ability to manually enter more transactions.

    In case you haven't found it yet, our user guide can be found at I'd be happy to answer any specific questions you may have.

    I am not support staff, just a user.

    As far as I know there is not a 2017 user guide yet. Certainly the link does not take to one. A better link is

    Hope this helps
