Microsoft Money stardard 2005 OEM edition to money plus RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been having problems with it lately.  I can download all the info from Banks, Credit cards etcetera with using OFX.

    After the download it locks up, I have to exit go back in and it seems to take the download. Now doing this everytime  this on banking and all credit cards it's a pain

    I see they make a sunset edition. My question is will this work with the 2005 OEM version I have and also until I can afford a new system I am running Windows XP SP3

  • If your Money 2005 is a US version, then Money US Sunset should be able to read your current .mny file.  You can download it from the second "sticky" post in this forum:


    Save a backup of your current Money 2005 .mny file and then open your current .mny file with Sunset.  If that solves your problem, all is well.  If not, you can revert to Money 2005 and the backup .mny file that you saved.  Note that Money Sunset will convert your file to a newer format and Money 2005 will not open files in a newer format.

    If that does not help, provide more detail on what is happening.  When you say "it locks up" do you mean that Money becomes unresponsive?  Of does XP crash?

    When you "go back in" (reopen Money?) are the downloaded transactions present?  Or are you now able to import them?  Are you importing by double-clicking on the downloaded ofx file?  Did you try just downloading the file and then importing it in Money with File>Import>Downloaded Statement and navigating to the downloaded file?
