Syncing two files on one Android mobile device

I'm successfully syncing one file to my Android phone. I'd like to sync another file. which is in a different currency, to the same phone. According to the related KB article, this can be done, as it states: "If you have more than one file enabled to sync via Dropbox, choose the file you'd like to sync". However, I'm unable to sync the second file. In the 2nd file, I selected "Dropbox Connection" as Sync method, and assigned a Passphrase. I then clicked "Authorise with Dropbox", which opens a browser page, and upon clicking Allow, the authorisation code is generated. When I enter this code into MD, and click OK, it opens another browser, and another code is generated, and it keeps doing this in a loop. What am I doing wrong? Appreciate any insight on this. Thanks ...

    Hello,

    I think perhaps the setup is misleading. It is only possible to sync with one data file on a mobile device. That option is to make sure you are choosing the correct data file, as some people have synced different data files with other desktop systems. Syncing more than one data file to a mobile device is a popular feature request, but I can't speculate on when that will be implemented.

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance,
