My Mac recently crashed and now when I open Money dance I am getting account names and categories starting

"Restored num=4703571 id=26ef3e34-744d-487d-9e18-e715d04fd093 20161003"

Please help?

    Hi Simon,

    I've attached a file called "" that should resolve this problem for you. Before proceeding, please back up your Moneydance data set, just in case something goes wrong. You can create a backup using the "File->Export Backup" menu option.

    To use the file, first save it to your computer and then follow these steps:

    1. In Moneydance, click on the Extensions Menu and choose the Manage Extensions option.
    2. From the list of available extensions, choose the Python Interface extension, then click Install to download the extension and finish to complete the installation.
    3. Close the Manage Extensions window.
    4. Again, click the Extensions menu. This time, choose the Python Interface option.
    5. In the python window, click the read from file button and load the file from wherever you saved it. You'll get a confirmation message when the script is finished. Close the window when done.

    Hopefully, that will work. You may need to re-add some accounts to your sidebar after running this script. You can do so using the "plus" sign in the bottom left corner of the Moneydance window, underneath the sidebar.
