Thanks for your suggestion, but: When I open my old Money Dance
version which works OK, the root account is shown at the top with
destination path and name, i.e. "C:\Users\Nick\Documents\Money
Dance\Money Dance Date.md-2010-10-19". The date and time when last
modified corresponds to when I last entered an item into Money
Dance and saved it. In the new version of Money Dance I go to the
welcome screen via Window menu and click "Open Other", select this
file but nothing new happens. What I do see under account sets and
seems to be permanently there is "Personal Finances 09-Mar-2013
18-46-58". Clicking on it does nothing, just ignores me. Cannot
right click to delete either.
The date suffix on the file marks it as a back up. To use it as
a data file you need to rename it a "name".md file.
Unless you had moved your data file to another location, you
should see a .md file located in your documents folder and by
double clicking on that it should open Moneydance 2012 with an
option to convert.
Thank you for your help. I renamed the current back up file and
it worked. Then I had the same problem again with another network
account that also uses the same Money Dance file. Managed to solve
this as well. I Just hope there are no more updates.
