Money 2005 - Is there a way to avoid creating duplicate categories

I have used Money 2003 for 2 years now.  I did not use ANY of the online 
features nor did I have a .NET Passport.  I just purchased Money 2005.  I 
took my existing .mny file and converted it for use in Money 2005.  I enabled 
my checking account (from US Bank) to use online services.  NOT ONLY did 2005 
create a brand new duplicate account with my recent activity in it (see my 
other posting), BUT it also duplicated most of my existing budget categories 
too.

For example, I had an existing category called "Day Care".  Now I have two 
of them: "Day Care" and "Day Care-#1". 

Is there a way to resolve this, or work around it?  Has anyone else seen 
this problem?

Thanks In Advance!

I had the same issue when trying to set up the online services.  It
duplicated the majority of the categories I had (also with the
xxxxx-#1 naming convention).  I haven't figured out how to get around
this or the duplicate accounts.

The only suggestion I can offer, it isn't a great one... is to go to
"set up categories" and to "move" (found at the bottom of page)
everything from say Day Care-#1 to Day Care category.  I know this
stinks if it's duplicated many of these. I've also had problems with
it moving some of my subcatagories to catagories... ex: Food:
groceries is now just groceries. Moving also worked here, but takes
much time to get it back to it's original state.  I've had Money since
1999 version. Had no problems until 2005.

Money2004 Duplicate Check Numbers download
This is Money 2004. When I download my transactions from the bank all of my transactions come down with check numbers even if they are not checks. For example, if I bring down check number 345 then the next few transactions which are debits will also come down as 345. They should come down with no check number. I checked on the bank website and they don't have numbers there but when they hit msmoney, the number appears. Is there some change I need to make to not assign a number when the transaction hits money? Chas. ccoe@comcast.net ...

PDF'ing Project in a way that keeps Expandable/Collapsable structure intact?

MONEY MONEY MONEY!!!
Hello, A while back, I was browsing these newsgroups, just like you are now, and came across an article similar to this that said you could make thousands of CASH within weeks with only an initial investment of $6.00 (American) plus International stamps due to users that may be outside the United States! So I thought, "Yeah, right, this must be a scam!" But like most of us I was curious and kept reading. It said that if you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and addresses listed in the article, you could make thousands in a very short period of time. You then place your own na...

Problems with Money 2005
I've used Money for several years. Started using '05 about two months ago. Two days ago I got a downloaded statement from my broker (an everyday occurence). Money crashed. It just froze up. I had to use control alt delete to get out. Now I have tried repairing files, restoring backups, you name it. I finally did get a backup file that was about a month old to open and run. I made a copy for safety. As soon as the statement was downloaded, this file froze up. I just want to get my data back for the last month, I don't care if I have to delete the statement.

Repair a Money data file? MS Money or MSN Money?
I've posted here before about trouble accessing one bank in my MS Money setup. I'm using MS Money 07 Deluxe on a WinXP Pro SP2 computer. It's now been well over a month since I've been able to download transactions from this bank. Last week, I had an online chat with a MS support rep. Unfortunately, I had to cut the session short, after over an hour, because I had a meeting I had to attend. And with one thing and another, I'd rather not go through the chat again and paying for phone support is a very last option. Anyway, to sum up: I tried accessing the data via the ...
