Money 2006 Small Business Rating

After using Money 2006 Small Business now for many months I will have to say 
that it is the worst Money I have ever used. It is so slow! It is running on 
a 3 Gig Pentium IV with 1 Gig RAM. I have been using Money for many years now 
and am VERY SORRY that I purchased Money 2006. Just my comments.

What exactly is slow.  Not that I don't believe you, but are the slow 
parts and different that what some folks have described report on here, 
for example in the FAQ.

For comparison, I don't see any slowness, nor have seen any in the past. 
I have M04 Small Business, with what I'm sure is an above average number 
of accounts (credit card, bank, investment, and frequent flyer) some 
with history going back to 1996. I use a two year old laptop.

Money Deluxe 05
I purchased Money Deluxe 05 just a week ago. I downloaded the program from Microsoft (paid $63.00) and once I installed the program I keep getting a screen asking me to upgrade from the trial version to Deluxe. I contacted Microsoft and they told me to wait for a letter in the mail that will explain how to get rid off that screen. It's been a week and I'm still using the trial version even though my credit card has been charged with $63.00..any suggestions of what to do?. I like the program but this is beyond any imagination. Help!!!!! ...

Bug with Money 2004 and Balance Pop-up
I have had a problem a couple of times when I try to balance an account. I enter the Ending Balance and Interest and the next button will not work. I cancel try again, same thing. It is a hit and miss thing. Sometimes closing money will work or a reboot will work. Has this been reported or is there a work-around? I upgraded from 2002 and it seems like there is a lot of little bugs like this every where. The Refresh after printing checks it a little heavy on the resource and flickers quite a bit. Chris This is certainly not a pervasive defect in Money that effects all user of M...

Money 2004 Balancing Errors
When I access my accounts (any one of them) and set the View to All Dates and All Transactions the Ending Balance shows correctly. If I chane the view to All Dates and Unreconciled Transactions the Ending Balance shows a huge negative balance. This problem started from the start of this year (2006). Is there a bug? Did anyone experience this problem? Is there a fix for this? Please let me know.

Delivery Status Notification (Delay) on mail from business domain to AOL
I don't believe this is the right place to post this, but I'm not sure where to go. When we send business correspondence to AOL, we get a Delivery Status Notification (Delay) message for all messages. I'm fairly certain that it's not related to the AOL spam filters as I tested it on an account that had the spam filters turned off and still got the Delivery Status notification message. Has anyone ever seen this problem before? What is the solution? Some server between you and the recipient is delaying the messages - it might be AOL, it might be some other server. You c...

Money 2002 #23
I have been using Money for some time without any problems downloading transactions. My download went fine from the bank and seemed to be in Money. It said I had a statement to review but I don't see the transactions in the account register. I clicked on help and it said to clear my temp files - I did and then another faq said to do Internet Updates. Did that rebooted and now Money won't even open. Help it's tax time.

Why Upgrade from MS Money 2003 to 2005?
I just upgraded and recently noticed with my transactions in comparison to MS Money 2000 which is much better and worked with all my SB Office Business tools 2000. MS Money 2003 SB Edition destroyed all links to MS Business Tools and also does not pick up all my financial transactions data so I would have to keep a paper copy anyway or go online to find the transaction to fill in the data. MS Money 2003 does not work properly with VersaCheck QuickPass 2004. TaxCut 2004 works great with MS Money 2003. You are pushing to upgrade MS Money 2005 and I read some of the support issues. In...

SQL Server Sort Order for Business Portal
Hi all, Our existing SQL Server database for GP uses a Binary sort order. We are trying to install Business Portal (using Windows Share Point Services) but the the install instructions says it can only be installed on SQL Server with sort order 52 (Dictionary Order, Case Insensitive). If we create a new SQL Server instance using sort order 52 for Business Portal, are there any issues we may run into in the future regarding data exchange with GP? Thank you. LR You can either create a new SQL Server instance using DOCI or you can let the system install SQL Express which will automatic...

Printing business cards #11
I've created my business cards in Pub. 2002 and print preview shows everything perfectly. However, when I print each row seems to print a little too hgih into the next until finally the last row of cards has a .25 inch gap at the bottom. Seemed to me it might be a feed problem with my printer, but I printed a test page and it was not skewed. I even tried adjusting ( in Pg Setup) the vertical gap between the rows and that moves the printing too much. Hope my rambles make sense. I've been messing w/ this off and on for 3 days now. -- Thank you, Christine It does sound like ...

Missing Money Program
Few days ago I downloaded Money Plus Premium (or was it Money Plus Deluxe Premium?) and have now a charge of about $59 on my credit card. Trouble is this: after the download (about 36 MB) I I could not find it on my computer and still cannot find it. So a day or so later I downloaded the trial version of Money Plus Deluxe (I guess that's the name) and that is working fine and I am getting reminders to pay for it (60 day trial). Who should I contact at Microsoft (say, an 800 number) to explain this situation and get the $59 off my credit card? AlexM On Sep 2, 10:32=A0am, Alexm <amc...

Money 2005 charts
Just wondering if i should buy Money 2005... I know Money can generate bar graphs and pie graphs, but will it create line graphs of expenses/account balances? I just find this easier to view all of it on one graph with different lines. Some standard reports e.g. Net worth over time are already line graphs, and for most others you can customise the display type. -- Regards Bob Peel, Microsoft MVP - Money For UK tips & fixes see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=fh;EN-GB;mny.

Money 2005
(Sorry for the duplicate post "Money 2005" - I fat-fingered it) 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 tried to get the online services part working, but if you look at my previous posts, I have run into some really big problems with it. Anyway, as part of this upgrade I created a .NET Passport. Then I read that this puts account information and transaction detail online with MSN. I DO NOT WANT THIS! How...

Unmatching Transactions in Money 2003
I still occasionally get mis-matched transactions when money downloads from my bank. Most of the time, I notice this, and select the option to "unmatch" the transaction which enters a new transaction and all is well. Occasionally, I neglect to perform the manual unmatching which results in the incorrectly matched transaction showing as cleared and no new transaction as there should be. I remember (possibly in an earlier version) being able to "undo" this situation but can't remember how. Can this be done in Money 2003? Thanks in advance for your help. In microsoft....

Money Plus DeLuxe crashes when updating bankaccounts online
I have no problem activating or logging on since upgrading from Money 2006 to Money Plus as others seem to have. However, I do have a problem with updating bankaccounts. The application just crashes when trying to update. It takes a few seconds but just as it seems to be ready it just closes down. No error messages, nothing. After re-launching app there has been no update to the accounts. All info from previous version of Money was kept intact by the upgrade and I haven't really changed anything in username and password. Anyone else with similar problems? Anyone has a solution? /P...
