I am considering purchasing MoneyDance, but have a few things I want to get confirmation before hand:
- I live in canada and use Desjardin and BMO banks. Will I be able to import data from those banks? If so, will I need to do it manually or will MoneyDance be able to sync automatically? - Will Moneydance be able to reconciliate my credit cards accounts? Meaning, will it understand that my credit card bill on my main account are not a single bill/purchase, but need to be catergorised for each expense from my credit card account? - Will I be able to go back in time to categorise my spending from last year?

Thanks you!

    Hi Nicolas,

    Moneydance uses direct-connect to access a financial institution's OFX server. Here is a link to the financial institutions that support direct-connect to Moneydance.

    Moneydance can manually import OFX, OFC, QFX and QIF files. It can also import formatted CSV and TXT files into Bank and Credit Card accounts.

    If I understand you correctly, Moneydance provides for Credit Card accounts that house the individual transactions and their respective descriptions, categories and amounts. The credit card 'bill' is handled as a transfer transaction from the paying account (usually a checking account) to the Credit Card account.

    If I may make a suggestion, download the free, trial-version of Moneydance to see if it suits your needs,

    You can d/l it here:
