Ensure you are running the latest build of 2017 from https://infinitekind.com/download-moneydance-personal-finance-software on all your computers.
Check that your APP version is the latest version.
Of the two-sync method I think Dropbox Folder is the most flexible. Consider changing if you are using Dropbox Connection.
I would recommend not having more than two devices running Moneydance at one time. My set up is two computers and one phone. I found if I have all three devices running Moneydance at the same time I could occasionally get syncing errors, be warned. I reported this the Sean the lead software developer but as far as I know, no fix yet.
You can set up as many devices as you like for syncing, but only run Moneydance on two devices at a time. For, example if you have Moneydance running on one computer and a phone shut down Moneydance on one of these before opening Moneydance on another device.

Many thanks for your reply
I am using Dropbox sync, and only using an iPad and MacBookpro...it certainly seems there is a issue as I found perhaps 4 or 5 duplicates. I was hoping I could use the iOS application for make category and description updates whilst I was out and about, but alas until it’s reliable I fear it’s going to be be more trouble than it’s worth...still very happy with Moneydance!
