using Money 98 files under Windows 7 Home Premium?

Hello,

I have a friend who I have just moved onto Windows 7 Home Premium.

He has some Money 98 , .mny, files. I understand that Microsoft has
stopped support for Money?

How can he access these files?

He still has Money 98 on his old PC - can he open the files with this
and save them in another form which he could access under Windows 7?

Cheers

Geoff

He would install Money 98 onto the new machine with the original CD.
He would copy the *.mny file from his old machine into the Documents
folder on the new machine. He would File->Open that file within
Money 98.

Thanks Cal, 

I had got it into my head that Money 98 wouldn't run under Windows 7 -
too pessimistic!

I found that I could install Money 97 just before I read your message!

Thanks

MS Money 95 data files
I hope that some one can answer this for me.

Standalone install of Office 98 Upgrade?

Using part of a cell in a chart title
I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be used from a cell e.g. "counted with 5%" 5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title. Is this possible?

Filter recordset using query results
Hi all I have a form based on a query called [qry Quarterly Planning], it lists all Itineraries on the system. On this form you can filter records by specifying a Start and End Date for the [ReviewDate] and/or [Specialist]. It is a subform on a main unbound form, lets call this Subform1.

Unexpected error message on closing an Excel file
