    i had used Microsoft Money deluxe sunset from a few days ago and my problem is as follow :

    i had made a bill for my cell phone monthly payment and every thing is good and it is reflected in my budget, but according to certain conditions i had deleted this bill sequence and made a new same one however i had noticed that it appears in budget with the double amount and when i edit this Item Budget (Bills : Cell Phone ) i had found that it stores the previous deleted one which i had already deleted it . can i delete this repeat manually !!!!!

  • This is a known problem.  See:

    http://money.mvps.org/faq/article/114.aspx

    which suggests removing the bill from the budget before deleting it and which also contains this link:

    https://support2.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;318841

    with some additional (rather unpleasant)  options.

    Before you do any recovery attempt, be sure to save good backups of you current file in a safe place so that you can recover if something goes awry.  Then, if you have a backup from before the date when you deleted the first bill, the simplest process it to open that backup file, delete the bill from the budget, and then delete it from the bill summary.  This will require that you then "catch up" the file by entering any transactions that occurred since that backup. Once that is done, you can enter your new cell phone bill and put it in the budget.  Needless to say, this could be really tedious if you backup is not recent.

    Another option is the "Remove All Bills Data", aka "Nuke the Bills" as described in the second link.  If you are tempted to do this, be sure to read this posting first:
