Hi Debbie, there is no quick easy answer, once you set
up your check book in quicken you have to go through
that initial phase of entering transactions, assigning
them to catagories so you can "track" them or import
them to tax software etc. but once over this hill, it
does become almost a joy, quicken will let you schedule
and fill in tracsactions at what ever time you specify.
It frees you up from the repetative tasks. I know that
my utility bills, car payment etc. are being recorded
in my check register on the proper dates, mutual fund
deductions are bieng recorded in the check register and
transfered and recorded into thier proper account and
you can set up quicken to prompt you with a reminder or
it will record these transaction in the background.
In my humble opinion the initial work is worth it. Good
luck in whatever you decide.
thanks, marty1
