MS Money 2004 UK Version

  GrahamK31 15:51 16 Sep 2009

I have been running MS Money UK in various versions for the past 9 years and last upgraded to the 2004 version a few years ago. I gather that the software is no longer supported by Microsoft and will therefore become increasingly obsolete.
Does anyone have any advice upon the following issues:

1. Is there any other compatible financial management software that I could procure so that i could transfer my extensive data in due course?

2. Does anyone have any recommended alternatives - with similar capabilities as Money UK? Accepted that data transfer may/will not be possible.

3. How can one best store the data i have on MS Money for archive purposes if i do start with a new software system.

4. Or am i worrying unnecessarily??!

Thanks for any assistance/advice

I use Money 2002, and I am not worried about MS support.
I am running Vista at the moment, but I have tested it on Windows 7 with no problems.
Just use the backup facility within Money to back up your data preferably to an external HDD.
I don't really think that you should worry over much.
You can if you wish simply download bank details in Excel spreadsheet form.

Another thought, make sure that you have a copy of the original disc in case of accidents.

What can go wrong? Money seems to have less problems than a lot of other programs.
I am sure any help you need you wil get on this Forum
