Home accounting program with internet linkup

  astral traveller 19:31 27 Apr 2007

I'm looking to purchase a decent home accounts program. I know of Microsoft Money and Quicken but which is the best for downloading info straight from online accounts - or is there anything else that does it better?

I think Quicken have pulled out of the UK market, so if you are based here, not much choice.

It looks like it's Microsoft Money then!

There's also Sage, Tesco Personal Finance and Accountz. Off the top of my head I can't remember which of those does download directly from online accounts. Or try Moneybox (written by my dad, has a band of fans here) click here. He says it scoops down info from online accounts, can't vouch for it though because *whispers* I don't use it.

Money '06 and @07 have not been configured for the UK market.

However 2005 is only £24 at Amazon.

How important is that Internet Linkage?

I use Moneybox (thanks to Kate B's dad) but only for my personal bank account. (I am retired now).

I used Quicken when I was self employed because my accountant used it.

I have never tried Quicken or Moneybox to download direct from my online bank statements.

I do, however, download statements in .csv format to an excel spreadsheet.

I just tried to copy/import an excel spreadsheet in to Moneybox. It doesn't like it. There is no Paste option and import throws up an error, but as I enter all transactions manually in to Moneybox it doesn't matter to me.

pj123, drop Dad an email - if he hasn't already done work on that glitch I'm sure he'd like to hear about it. The email address is on the homepage that I linked to earlier.

Internet link up not to important just thought it would be handy to download statements and copy them straight into the program.
I've found a couple of other programs "Personal accounts" click here "You need a budget" click here does anyone have any experience of either of them? "You need a budget" seems interestingly different.
