Upgraded to MSMoney 2006 Deluxe

What a pain that was.

Could this program get any more slower....well, obviously not. Because it is.

Other issues, no more support for custom currencies. And, it changed online configuration.

I have two AMEX cards, and more recently Chase and Bank One merged. But, each was calling separately and download their own data. In setup, I had it skipping the other account....for AMEX and skipping Chase data, because each time I had run it in the past resulted in tons of duplicate data (so I stayed with active statement download from the site, actually active statement option was a recent thing...it used to only do QIF. Perhaps that's why when online update became available things didn't mesh)

Well, it did its update, and the accounts that used to get skipped...it created new accounts for them. And, the merge duplicate didn't work completely.

Took me a while to figure out that the extra 'First USA Credit Card' was actually my Chase Perfectcard. But, once I figured it out...that merge went alright. But, it wouldn't let me do the merge on AMEX. Eventually figured out that I needed to disable online updates for one and then merge. Except that it would let me delete the data from the previous updates (without offering to delete all my other data, that I want to keep). And, the merge that it would allow...it merged the wrong way (deleting all my old transactions).

So, I had to revert to before I upgraded again. This time removing the extra online account setups before doing the first online connect.

Other things...it changed the home page again. Now it shows less information than before. And, it does backups a little bit differently...so I had revise my scripts for processing the backups and flinging them off-site.

Otherwise, I think I've survived. |-|

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
