Welcome to the Wiki of Mike Bray
This Wiki has been created to pass on information, code and opinions. I hope you find it useful.
Moneydance 2019 is the new version of the popular finance package. For previous versions please refer to the Wiki for Moneydance 2015. The operation of 2019 is not dissimilar to 2015/7, however there are a number of changes which not only improve the user interface but also the installation on Windows and interoperability via python.
If you are upgrading on Windows you might want to read this.
The file structure of 2019 is the same as 2017, however, there have been some changes in the way currency and security prices are stored. Once you have opened a file in 2019 it is inadvisable to open it in 2017.
The Wiki/site is split into a number of different areas:
- Information about the Moneydance Personal Finance package (see Moneydance)
- Extensions for Moneydance developed by Mike Bray (see Extensions)
