Synced Macs and data not the same

Hi
Just bought a new Mac, and want to use Moneydance on this new one and existing older one. Followed instructions and used Dropbox to sync (I also use Dropbox to sync to iPhone).
The data on the new Mac doesn't match what's on my old Mac. A little investigation and it seems to be missing some of my investment transactions.
Why is this happening?

    I think people will need more information to try and work out what is happening and potentially why. The following details may provide a starting point for further investigation.

    1. What version and build of Moneydance are you using. The first 6 or so lines from your Moneydance console window will show this.

    2. How long have you been syncing with the iPhone

    3. What connection type are you using for the original desktop

    4. Is there a pattern of any sort that links the missing transactions.

    In some of the questions I am trying to see if there might be a reason for some transaction to not have been copied to dropbox. As you are having problems with Investment transactions your iPhone would likely be unaffected as the mobile app does not handle investments.
