Simply record expenses in Money 2004 - no budget needed

I would like to record my expenses daily, and have Money 2004 calculate
the total I spent for the month.

My expenses are different every month, and occur a different number of
instances each month, so making a budget won't work for me. I won't
know what my expenses are, until after I've paid them.

I would simply like to record each expense as it happens, and then have
Money add up all expenses for each category, as a running total for
each category.

I've tried doing this by creating a Budget within Money, but I'm forced
to choose recurring time periods for when the expense will occur ( I
won't know until after the expense occurs), and I'm forced to choose an
amount, but I won't know what the amount is until after the expense

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Money is good at that. Enter a category for each transaction. Just
ignore the budget.

Instead look at Reports.  Find a report similar to what you want.
Click Customize.

Explore the tabs to see what you can customize.

When done, you can save that customized report as a Favorite if you
like. Then changes you make to the regular report in the future will
not apply to the one you saved as a favorite.

If function, need nested more than seven levels
I have many Excel tables with columns with Dates in them in mmm-yyyy format. I'd like to insert a new column to the right of each of these columns and enter a formula in them to convert these formats. In the new column I'd like the result to be Q1, Q2, Q3, or Q4. I tried "=IF(MONTH(C3)=9,"Q3","")", and it works for the new column, if it is September, it results with Q3. But since there are 12 months in the year, I'd need to nest 12 of these IF functions to cover all my bases, but Excel only lets me nest 7 deep. How can I come up with an alterna...

Budgeting and Closed Accounts
I just tried reviewing this year's budget, and I found multiple items to be quite under-reported. When examing the transactions, I noticed Money wasn't reporting any 'actuals' that result from transactions in closed accounts. Isn't that a bug? Naturally, I could work around the issue by reopening the accounts; but its annoying to other aspects of Money. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to the suggestions with the most votes.

Does Money Support INternet update from TD Bank ?
I just installed Money 2004. I want to setup direct Internet update from TD Bank, I don't see it under customize updates. Does TD Bank support direct Internet downloads ? If so, how can I find out? If not, which banks in Canada support direct Internet Download ? Thanks There are no banks in Canada which support it right now as far as I know. They are all web-connect... it had something to do with some earlier banking law I think. I know that Quicken XG (CDN) boasted that is supported direct download (with the caveat that the bank had to support it). When I called the rep he said t...

2004 trial file won't open
I tried the trial 2004 version of Money and didn't bite. It saved my file but now won't recognize my password from 2002.

When the trial upgraded your data file it warned you that Money files, once upgraded, were not backward compatible. See for the recovery paths.

Office 2004 won't reinstall
As soon as I installed Leopard, my Office 2004 apps stopped working. I had never uninstalled Office X and I found that I could still use those apps, although I could *not* double-click on a doc and open it directly. I had to open the app, then choose "open" to get to docs. This was inconvenient, but I dealt with it whilst I looked online and tried to figure out what was going on with 2004. I found a lot of info about how installing Leopard messes up permissions, so I used disk utility to repair permissions. I checked that I had read & write privileges for Office 2004, and I check...

Help! Deleted Budget
I inadvertently deleted the Budget in GP 10. I went into Card|Budget, and exported the budget to an Excel file just to have a look at it. When I went back to the Budget Selection window, I hit Delete thinking I was purging the exported budget file. In my hope of undoing the deletion, I imported the Excel budget file that I had exported back into GP, and it is again listed in the Budget Selection window. What I need to know is what damage I did by deleting the entry that was there originally? For example, what other GP functions may have been dependent on the budget before I ...
