  • Money Plus cannot read your Australian file. So you will want to stick with Money 2005.

    Money Plus does have some advantages. My favorite is that it will save mutiple versions of  backups. What you should do is to do that manually. Also save Money backups onto different media too, in case you get a hard disk crash.

    If you really wanted to change, you could do QIF export and import. That is some work, and you lose some information in the process.

    I am glad Money is working for you now.
