Best Upgrade Option from Microsoft Money (Quick, QB?) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using MM for a while and its been good, but now I am moving on and getting a new 8.1 PC etc., so I don't want to be stuck with old software if MM is not supported anymore.

    So having used MM for all my bill pay/banking/checking/bill pay, what is the best program to transition into and export/import all my existing MM data, Quicken, Quickbooks, or something else?  I want it to be as simple as possible, thanks.

  • Quicken is the one you can port your MM data into if you have a US file. You will need  MM 2007 or Plus to do the conversion.

  • Most of the people on this forum who have tried GnuCash or MoneyDance, have come back to using Money.  Do a search of this forum for those programs to see their experiences.

    Before you jump to Quicken, have a look at the reviews on Amazon and the kind of issues that are discussed on the Quicken forum: https://qlc.intuit.com/.

    QuickBooks is aimed at businesses and is powerful, expensive, and complex.

    This isn't the place to discuss Windows 8.1, but I recommend that you "try before you buy".  Unless you plan to move to a touchscreen device you may be happier with Windows 7.  Money will run just fine on either OS.

  • even though money is not supported anymore, there is nothing as good or better. No reason you can't continue to use it. All the support you need is right here
