Thanks for your message and I apologise for the lack of official response. I've just pushed build 1852 to the preview site which includes extensive changes to the currency/security rates and prices handling which I believe resolve these problems. Would you mind downloading it from the link below and letting me know if it doesn't solve the problem for you?
It works much better. My only comments are that it now shows the base currency on the summary page - I assume this is intended. Also I clicked on Tools/CurrencyEuro and it initially showed a zero current value. I corrected it and everything seems fine now.
Thanks for your help.
Moneydance now does pretty much everything I need, except update currencies and security prices, but I don't think is doable now?
There are two methods within Moneydance for obtaining security prices and exchange rates automatically.
The extension “Quote and Exchange Rate updater. See under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE – EXTENSIONS V1024. For exchange rates use the source European Central Bank. If your securities are in the US try IEX Trading first, if that does not support a security try Alpha Vantage. Alpha Vantage also cover some securities outside the US, but is very, very slow.
If the Quote and Exchange Rate updater does not work well for you try the free third-party Quote Loader.
You need to explain in more detail.
What do you mean by "Having deleted the moneydance from the second computer". The program itself, its data set ,what?
What are you trying to do?
When you say " I am trying to open the sync file from Dropbox. I can’t get moneydance to see it" how are you doing that. Is it your second computer you are trying to sync to your primary computer?
