Hi Pam,

I've tried both, used Quicken for Dos, tried Money when it came with a new computer. Then ended up going back to Quicken.

Both have strong points, Money is much more user friendly, but I use a lot of MS products:). I use Turbo Tax so Quicken has some advantages when you do that, (hated the tax software that works with Money.)

Neither is perfect. I am still using '99 Deluxe and probably won't be upgrading as it does all the stuff I expect from a package. However, it is driving me nuts with the way it handles stock in the investing part. I am an employee of a blue chip, I get to buy below market values, but it isn't options, so much goes from each paycheck into the stock, Quicken keeps giving me the weirdest numbers and a negative balance on that account. I have deleted it and tried resetting it up several times, always the same result. It is frustrating.

I'll quit grousing and shut up now!

Cheers,
Joell
