Microsoft MVP - Money
For UK tips & fixes see
I do not respond to any emails that I have not specifically asked for.
>>> I live in the UK and have a bank account with barclays and also a
>>> barclaycard credit card; both of which I can access statements from via
>>> online banking (although my barclays current account only keeps records
>>> for the last 6 months).
>>> I'm looking for some software that can connect regularly to both my
>>> current account and credit card account and download statements;
>>> archive them and allow me to assign categories to each transaction; ie:
>>> look back on a weeks spending and change a generic ATM WITHDRAWL entry
>>> to 'Money Spent on Beer', for a transaction on a friday night; just so
>>> I can analyse how much i'm spending on what...
>>> Is there any software that can do this? It doesn't really need to be
>>> too complex, but i'd prefer it if it were automated rather than having
>>> to do it all manually in excel.
>> I use Microsoft Money myself and find it excellent (and it is not
>> expensive). Most banks let you download statements from their online
>> banking and these go straight into Money.
>> I have been using it for several years to run a couple of club accounts
>> too and had no problems.
>> I am using Money 2002, and have heard some horror storys from people
>> upgrading to Money 2005 but I suspect that starting from scratch is
>> probably ok.
> I should point out that there are other alternatives - e.g. Quicken
> I have no experience of this but have heard it is very good.
