  • Question

  • I have always used my own spreadsheet for my budgeting but sometimes I get an urge to use one of the apps or management sites like Mint. I downloaded the free version of MS Money yesterday and have found it fairly intuitive so far.

    Anyone else here using it? How's it working for you?

  • Money works great for me. Each person uses different aspects. I don't do budgeting, but I use several of Money's features.

    I use PocketSense to download transactions and more from credit cards and broker, to Money.

    I presume you are using Money Plus Deluxe Sunset.

  • The people who frequent this forum are generally very happy with Money and are very willing to help out a new user..  If you haven't seen it already, this resource:

    http://moneymvps.org/faq/AtoG.aspx

    can be very useful in understanding Money's capabilities.  It is out of date in one respect.  It discusses a registry change that is no longer needed when running Money on Windows 10.  Instead, if you are running US Money Deluxe Sunset, you should look at the first "sticky" thread in this forum:

    https://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/d28d6921-1f01-430f-b33e-f5a3ec47077b/important-patch-for-money-plus-maybe-20062007-mnyob99dll?forum=money

     and do the mnyob99.dll replacement that is described there:

    Two other useful sites are:

      - http://gaiersoftware.com/Money/DetailsAndHelp - which is maintained by Dan Gaier.  He sells a simple program that allows a "one-click" download of investment prices to your Money file.

      - https://sites.google.com/site/pocketsense/home/msmoneyfixp1/p2 - which is a free program maintained by Robert that allows downloading of bank, credit card, and investment account transactions directly into Money.  It's a bit of an effort to set up but it works very well and also has the capability to retrieve investment price quotes.
