I too found Money 98 slow, and one of the reasons must be the file size. My
file in 97 is about 950k. After the conversion to 98 it became about 5.3Meg.
I can't imagine how that could be possible, but it took 2 or 3 minutes to
close the damn thing. The final straw was when I tried to change the credit
limit on a card. This was a simple matter in 97 but I never did find the way
in 98. I suppose there is one, but I'd say it is well hidden. I'm back to 97
