Money 2005 Upgrade via Download Issue

I currently am using Money 2002 and want to update to 2005. If I go
the download route is it the same as buying the CD version? If I go
the download route is there a potential problem in installing on a new
system?

More or less after you get all of the download stuff. Yes. You have to keep
the same Passport forever and retain the trial version download to bootstrap
the process. Nobody knows how long you will be able to use that d/l to
bootstrap the process. Buy the CD. If you read posts here you will find lots
of problems with download purchase. The ratio to problems reported to the CD
purchase is maybe 100:1.

Thanks, Dick. I had pretty much talked myself into the CD version and
your input solidifies that decision...

Glad I could help. Thanks for the feedback. But before you buy M05, please 
do some due diligence. Results of mine are captured at 
http://umpmfaq.info/Money2005.htm. This newsgroup and its archives at 
http://groups.google.com (do an advanced search of newsgroup 
microsoft.public.money) are a good place to start. YMMV.

Money Login Problems
I was unable to login using passport to retrieve my *.mny file after 3 years of flawless use. Then about 12/22/07 was unable to access the file using Money 2004. I went through the gyrations of chainging my password on my passprt account, etc. even though it would log in outside of Money, but to no avail. I then upgraded to Money Plus Deluxe in an effort to resolve the issue, but again to no avail. I am even unable to access the file off-line with the Money password for the account.

Why is eveything so slow after upgrading from Excel 2000 to 2003?
I upgraded from Office 2000 to 2003. I have [fairly] large workbooks (7-10 MB) with many embedded charts and controls (i.e. lots of shapes). Following the upgrade, everyting to significantly slower. Of particular concern is the rate of simply swicthing between worksheets in a workbook. Previoulsy, I could toggle back and forth between sheets to compare charts. The transission rate is now so slow, this is no longer a practicle option. Any clues on how/if Excel 2003 can be tuned to run faster?

Curious: How many Money users are there?
I was just wondering - does anyone have any idea how many Money uers there are?

MSFT recently pulled a Money like manuever with Expression Media 2, a database program for photographers.

Eligibility of Office v.X for upgrade to 2008
Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel Hi, I have not found a reference to this already. I am interested in knowing if Office v.X for Mac is eligible for upgrade to 2008. I do not want to purchase the upgrade before knowing this. v.X was released in 2001 (I believe) which is after some of the other eligible products which the popup window on the MS web site says. Kind regards Mark Hi Mark; Don't let the "year a product was released" be construed with the *Name* of the release :-) It can be confusing. Direct answer to your question: Yes, any e...

I'm trying to create a new clean Money file because I'm getting the error message "A File needed to run the Planner is either missing or corrupted.
