Microsoft Money 2003 STANDARD

I had thought my previous thread was resolved. Someone gave me a link to click here which listed it and displayed a photograph of the box with STANDARD clearly shown.

However, Microsoft now tell me that this version only exists in the USA and that the only versions available here are Deluxe and Financial Suite.

I have emailed Pugh for clarification but, how difficult can it be to get a straight answer on what is available to the potential buyer?

It isn't rocket science!!

No you go to Uni if you want to do rocket science!

Our software contact is a M$ Certified to sell the stuff! Now I bet you don't get much in your hotmail account offering you one of those!

What is Hotmail?

How come the 'click here' appeared in my post? I have no idea how to do this and simply gave the name of the site. Does this happen automatically if you quote a site address?

Ok I'm in a nice mood.

Pugh's Educational catalogue (hmm its for November 2002!) says that you can buy Microsoft Money 2003 Standard CD-ROM (UK) for £21.

Ring 'em up on 01974 200201 if you want.

The other question - it you type a URL (or a web address) then the site will convert it to a link for you. The little people are nice like that.

I'm not sure, but some companies can buy software from abroad and sell them here. Microsoft may not have officially releashed the edition over in the UK but it doesn't stop indiviual businesses from buying them abroad and selling them here.

Emailed Pugh. They say MS Money 2003 Standard DOES NOT EXIST!! Why is it on their website, one wonders? MS states that it has NEVER existed, so one wonders why Pugh put it in their catalogue back in November. Could be a cockup but check out click here which also advertises Money 2003 Standard. No image available on the website, but their advertisement in last months PCA clearly shows the box with Money 2003 STANDARD on the front. Unless this was a mockup (why should it be?) then they have it.

I am determined to get to the bottom of this, it has become a challenge!

Not a lot of point buying financial software from abroad, is there. Would be different financial systems.

as you have previously said that you do not intend to connect to the net at your home in deepest rural surrey.

There is very little point in your purchasing the latest 3 updates of MS Money as most of these changes relate to contracts that MS has negociated with other financial support web sites and the core program haas just been updated to account for new tax regulations.
