upgrading to newer edition of Money

Can any answer this:  I'm using Microsoft Money 2002, and 
recently got Money 2004 for free when I bought some tax 
software, and I want to install it, but keep all the info. 
currently in my Money program.  How do I do this?  Do I 
just put the Money 2004 CD in the computer, install it, 
and all my info. will automatically transfer over?

Thanks .. Anthony

That's the way it should work, as long as you are not changing

There is an as-yet unpublished FAQ that reads:
Q): Can a new version of Money open my old version data file/backup
file/backup diskette(s)?

A): The newest version of Money is designed to open and upgrade older
version Money data files, backup files, and backup diskettes for all older
versions of Money, with caveats as noted below.

1) Upgrades are not supported across different localizations of Money. E.g.,
M99 for UK will not upgrade to M04 US. For more information, see "Why do I
get the "incompatible versions" message when upgrading my data file?").

2) Beginning with M03, a significant number of users have had problems with
the upgrade process. For more information, see "I thought Money files were
supposed to be upward compatible. How come Money[new] crashes when upgrading
my Money[old] data file?").

3) Be sure you have a good backup file/set of backup diskettes. For more
information, see "You must help me! My only floppy backup has a data error
reading. What do I do?").

Hotkey for Font color change while editing cell.

Money and PocketPC
Supported of not supported, I think the whole thing about the Pocket version of Money is a mess. Since MM 2005 I do use the PocketPC version first, first on the 2003 OS of PocketPC. My base has been the HP iPAQ 2110 with 2003 SE and ActiveSync 3.8. Later on ActiveSync 4.0 and Microsoft Money went to 2006 with the PocketPC version 2006 after the summer holidays (bad planning!). This year we went to WM5 and I still haven't got a single problem. Now on the iPAQ 2190b (WM5 AKU2) it's still working fine, I use now ActiveSync 4.2. Just before my summer holidays Money 2007 has been rel...

There are two major problems: First Issue: I enter my income, very simple, only one item. I get paid every two weeks, so Monday computes a monthly subtotal, and this is correct. For the sake of argument, let's say it's $1000. Then, I enter my expense budget items, including double-checking the ones Money pulled from my scheduled Bills. These are all correct. For the sake of example, let's say it'...

Should I upgrade from 05 to 06?
I haven't been keeping up with everyone here, and apologize for not researching this for a while, but what is everyone's opinion of 06 so far? I use Small Business, and after all the problems it had, I've sort of just fell into a funk with using it, doing what I could each time I logged on to fix the problems that arose when I downloaded my accounts that day. Is 06 much better? Not really! What you have to decide is whether you want to use Money as a personal finance program or just to download data at certain times. I would suggest you do NOT spend another $25 just to con...
