Product Description

Net Worth Express is a unique software program that allows you to create and maintain a Personal Financial Statement, also known as a Statement of Financial Condition. The software and its professional reporting capabilities are designed to make applying for or maintaining credit with a financial institution easier and more comprehensive. Net Worth Express gives you the ability to easily determine your net worth and gain a better understanding of your overall financial condition. It also allows you to track your net worth on an on-going basis. While there are several ways to evaluate your monetary situation, determining what is known as your "net worth" is perhaps the clearest indicator of your financial condition at any given point. That is why many financial institutions require a Personal Financial Statement that includes a calculation of your net worth when applying for a loan or maintaining a line of credit. In addition, when planning and analyzing your financial future, a Personal Financial Statement is the best report to begin with and use throughout your life. Until now, determining your net worth and creating a Personal Financial Statement has been a daunting task. Net Worth Express has changed that! Most individuals will find that the HOME Edition fully meets their financial statement preparation needs. However, individuals with a more complex financial situation (small business owners and high net worth people, for example) - may want to consider the extended features of the PRO Edition. This product is compatible with Microsoft Windows ME, NT 4.0, 2000 and XP. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Version of Microsoft Money
I used to own this version of Money and recently upgraded to Money 2003. I have since gone back to the 99 version. Firstly, the 99 version has many planning tools on it, such as a budget planner, many different calculators, such as a rent vs. buy calculator to see if you are ready to buy a home, a savings planner, interest calculators, and many more comprehensive calculators and planners that are easy to use and helpful. When I started using Microsoft Money 2003 Standard, I was very dissapointed to find that there are absolutely no calculators or planners on it besides a budget planner. And not only that, but it is full of ads! When I start Money, I get a pop-up ad to invest or buy something, and there is always an ad on the side margin. I never had a problem with Money 99 and for anyone interested in the Money software, 99 is your best bet. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Quicken Financial Planner
I thought I was the only one out there who was mystified by the lack of updates to Quicken Financial Planner. It was the best program of its kind and I have found nothing to replace the now useless planning tool.

3-0 out of 5 stars Intuit, what could you have been thinking!
I absolutely agree with the other reviewers' comments about Quicken Financial Planner! And I'd like to challenge all you software developers out there: Why doesn't somebody who knows how to do it buy (or take) this once-marvelous software program, update it to current tax law, and offer it as your own product (with continuing support)?

If you make it possible to export our current QFP data into your new program, that would be even better! Then market it well, in terms of what it can do for me. (Intuit never did this competently. The only way I found out about it was upon recommendation from my accountant.)

This was a fantastic financial planning tool -- in fact, I still use it, even with it's hopelessly outdated tax information, because I've not been able to locate anything else remotely as well-conceived. (Has anyone else out there?) With a few keystrokes, I can try out a multitude of different investment strategies, or possible purchases/standards of living, and see their long-term effect upon our net worth. It's QFP that allowed me to see -- way back in '98, when most financial planners were saying "don't even think about it, in your position!" -- what an incredible effect converting our SEP-IRAs to Roth IRAs would have, long term.

Intuit, what in the world could you have been thinking, to abandon this gem? And if the genius who actually developed QFP in the first place is reading this, how about YOU taking it back, and making it your own product? Remember -- the Boomers' retirements are coming! And if you do, PLEASE let me know!


2-0 out of 5 stars A good product goes downhill
I've used the Financial Planner for a number of years and found it helpful ... until recently. The additions of Roth IRAs a few years ago and other more recent tax changes required the planner to be updated. It is no longer accurate. I tried installing one of the patches, but it wouldn't install. So I'm left with my favorite financial planner being almost useless. It still helps me consider all the options for planning my retirement, but it could have remained GREAT. Intuit is not supporting this product adequately, so now I'm in the market for something better. Too bad, it really was great a few years ago. Too bad for Intuit and their customers.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great concept, no support
This is a superbly planned program. It walks the user through a simple but detailed interview leading to a conclusion about the adequacy of one's plans to their idea of retirement. My big complaint, however, is that Intuit has not supported the program at all. They posted a minor touchup on their website two years ago, then abandoned further revisions. The most current edition fails to acknowledge the 1998 tax reforms, such as capital gains tax reduction, and exemption of capital gains on sale of a home. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars A dud of an "upgrade"
I wish I had read some of the customer reviews here before "upgrading" from Quicken 2000 to Quicken 2004. I was pretty happy with 2000, but thought I'd be better off running in native OS-X mode. Big mistake! The new version is much slower than the old one and is less stable to boot. That's when running under Panther -- if you restart under 9.2.2 and try to use this program, it's a complete disaster. In either case, I've run into several major annoyances (apart from the crashes) in just a few days of use: (1) When you type text in a register field, the line of text has an annoying tendency to stretch and compress unpredictably, making it virtually impossible to place the cursor where you want to in order to make a correction. That didn't happen before! (2) Updating the prices in the investment portfolio used to be pretty fast, but now takes FOREVER. (3) When you finish reconciling a credit card account, the program no longer asks you if you want to pay the bill now; instead, you have to navigate to the checking account from which you are going to make the payment and enter the payment manually.

1-0 out of 5 stars A decade of work down the drain
I first started using Quicken for DOS in 1993. Since then, I have diligently recorded every single financial transaction I have made, all the while upgrading seamlessly each year to the newest version of Quicken. Quicken was a part of my life, and moving my data regularly to the latest software update was always a breeze.

But then I decided to switch to Mac. While my overall experience moving to Mac was excellent (Macs rule!), the move of my Quicken data to Quicken 2004 for Mac was a nightmare. I spent literally dozens of hours tweaking my data and in many cases simply reentering it manually, and even now it still doesn't quite work right. The program itself is clunky and bears no resemblance to the popular Windows product.

To Intuit: Shame on you for putting this product in a box and selling it. You shouldn't even give this worthless thing away. It is so awful. I will never buy another Intuit product again. I don't know how your programmers can even look at themselves in the mirror. My kindergartener can write better software than this.

To Apple: You really ought to put your own personal financial software in the next round of iLife, and be sure to make it compatible with Quicken for Windows data. And for god sake, don't let Intuit pre-bundle any of their software on Macs in the future. It reflects poorly on Apple.

1-0 out of 5 stars ITS A DISGRACE!
Beware of this program! Particularly if you are switching from the PC version which is much more advanced and accurate. This program has TONS of glaring problems that become apparent shortly after running the program. I can't understand how in the world it got off the market because of glaring and obvious nature of the problems that would make all other software companies stop production and send it back-for example, it quickly mixes up dates, consistently mixes up the positive or negative signs like of a credit card balance, and will crash on a whim. Basically it is pitiful alternative to the PC version.

I feel cheated that I am forced to use this software as there is no alternative for the MAC. Intuit be WARNED. YOU WILL LOOSE NEARLY THE ENTIRE MARKET SHARE OF FINANCIAL INTERNET SOFTWARE PRODUCT LINE WHEN A DECENT COMPETATOR COMES OUT!

To Macintosh: Where in the world is your answer to this. People would love an alternative built in the I Life series.

To Microsoft: Its yours for the taking. I would buy it tomorrow as anything has to be better than this.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buggy and cumbersome - Need an alternative
after days of trying to get this software to work as expected, i'm ready to return it. i even bought a book to see if i was doing something wrong. the book is written for the Windows version and apparently is completely different. downloading data from Bank of America is very buggy. (not the fault of BofA, the data is clean, Quicken mixes up the records, wrong dates, changes amounts and titles, assigns strange categories, etc.) their support was completely unresponsive. their help files didnt address the issues. if this is your first time using financial software, there is no good way to get old information in. wish MS Money was available for Mac. really wish Apple would write an alternative. feel trapped with Quicken because there is no real competition.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do NOT BUY or BE SORRY!
Having been a loyal user of Quicken 98 and 2000 since 1996, it was logical to upgrade when I switched to OSX. This product could not be more screwed up. Entries are mysteriously lost and duplicated. Reconciling does not work at all as numerous entries are not recognized, making accounts appear out of balance. And so on. After hours of trying to figure out what "I" was doing wrong, I went onto Intuit website only to find out that this (and more issues) are common problems. My solution for now is to go back to Quicken 2000 and launch with OS9 (major pain, but better than having consistently unreliable software/financial data). As soon as a comparable product is available for Mac I will switch. Unless you want to spend countless hours rebuilding your data, DO NOT BUY. Any review supporting this product could only be written by an Intuit executive or major shareholder. I've never been compelled to write a product review before, but this product is SO BAD, and Intuit is so unresponsive, it was my only option. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars low software quality?
I was a loyal Quicken user (used quicken 98) and just bought Quicken 2003 Deluxe although I got Microsoft Monday as installed software on my computer.

I am very disappointed of this version. Virtually I didn't use the new version because I cannot register it. The registeration pages reported a script error. Then I went to the Quicken website, and found a description of the program and a "solution" telling me to un-install and re-install to solve the problem. I did it three times but failed to make the registration work.

If you think registraion may not be a problem, think it twice. Quicken 2003 will stop to download stock and fund prices without registration! This behavior make my investment portfolio ugly: all stock/fund prices are zero, but there are cash flowouts, thus my investment value is a large negative number!

... I downloaded and installed an update, but that did not solve the problem.

They are other things that annoy me, as I am a computer professional myself. When I was searching the solution to my problem, I scanned the descriptions of other problems. Some problems seem to be typical for software without quality control and thorough testing. One example is "stopping responding when registering", and the answer is that the internet connection may not be available. Normally software should check this situation and report to the user instead of hanging there.

I stopped and switched back to Microsoft Money. Maybe Quicken is not so terrible as I thought because I didn't really use the new version. On the other hand, I am uneasy with Money, too. Although the quality of the software itself seems to be better, the security issue of Windows and the aggresive nature of Microsoft bother me. But now no good choice exists.

1-0 out of 5 stars slooooow
I have been a loyal Quicken user, but this product has been a disaster. I have plenty of memory, according to its requirements, but that doesn't seem to matter. The program is achingly slow. A previous reviewer wrote that it takes three seconds for a pull-down menu to appear. I wish! It takes 15 to 20 seconds for me. Imagine how long it takes when I try to do something more complicated. Also, many of the new features are not intuitive. I've had enough frustration to switch back to try to switch back to an earlier version of Quicken--or to Microsoft Money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Use the $$ for an Upgrade to buy your wife dinner
I had Quicken 2000 on an older machine and when I purchased a new one, I thought I might upgrade. Boy was that a mistake! I actually got my money back and restored my 2000 program. Spend the $$ for the upgrade on a dinner for your loved one and don't commit to the hours and hours of time needed to set up and baby the product.

2-0 out of 5 stars Quicken 2003 breaks functionality that was in Quicken 2000
The user-friendly investment alerts mechanism that was in Quicken 2000 is completely destroyed. Someone should be fired over designing such a terrible interface.
It now longer tracks investment in you security list unless you include them in your watchlist. Quicken also deviously attempts to upload all your portfolio information to their website.

The alerts that you manually set get automatically reset (you have no choice in this) if the limits are met. This means that if you don't react upon the alert during the same session, you will have to remember the alert for a later session becauae Quicken no longer remembers it either - quite poor design.

I wonder what they do with that personal data?

1-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing
I used earlier versions of QUICKEN for years. Putting in this version was a big mistake. Not only is it buggy (it has totally messed up previously reconciled entries), support is totally non-existant. Even trying to search the "knowledge base", on the support site, is a painful experience. The web site says not to expect an answer to reporting a problem. What type of support is that? I could do better manually than this version of the product. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use
The home screen is divided into three sections with icons representing Income, Accounts and Payees. All transactions are recorded using a combination of these icons which are easy to set up. Record keeping requires little effort and the system allows construction of budgets; reports of expeditures against budgets, itemized expenditures by category and dozens of others. I have tried Money and Quicken and think this by far the easiest to use. It was originally developed by Computer Associates for Kiplinger Personal Finance.

4-0 out of 5 stars Simply Money is easier to use than Quicken or Microsoft Mone
Simply Money is easier to use than Quicken or Microsoft Money. If you don't want intergalactic, this is the program for you.

Works fine on XP for me. Read the other reviews; Simply Money is sold by Simply Media that has 40 or so titles. You can get tech support at, under tech support. They have posted a free updated manual (searchable; printable; free) and a Quick Start Guide.

The new version has both the Quick Start Guide and the Manual on the CD.

So if you want to do checks and things like that, this is perfect. If you want intergalactic, do Quicken or MM.

1-0 out of 5 stars Unresolvable Bugs
Unfortunately Simply Money has unresolvable bugs that render it useless. One bug causes an invalid record to appear at the beginning of the checkbook register. Simply Money will then display an error and close whenever you attempt to use the Balance function or scroll up to the top most entry in the register.

Before year 2000 the way to fix this issue was to export the finance group to a Simply Money file format (.MXF) and then import it back in. Unfortunately, if you are tracking investments and have transactions in the year 2000 the import will fail because Simply Money cannot handle '00' as a year for importing investment information. Since you cannot import the file to fix the checkbook register, you cannot fix the invalid transaction in the register and the Balance function is rendered unusable.

Additionally, some dates default to the wrong century in the entry windows so you have to be watchful to ensure the proper date is recorded.

These bugs will never be fixed because development ceased on this product several years ago

Stay away from this product.

3-0 out of 5 stars Simply Money Y2K Fix
I have been a user of the Simply Money for six years. I agree with other comments already made. The programme is easy to use but needs updating as some of the functions such as transferring between accounts shows the year as 1900 instead of 2000. If this could be fixed I would have no hesitation in recommending it to new computer users because of its simplicity. I have not been able to establish who has the ownership of the programme. Incidently the version being offered is suitable for windows 98.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not New but Pretty Good
First I'll vent. What I received is not Simply Money 2.1, it is version 2.0b repackaged, which I have already had for several years. Further the publisher identified is not Victory Multimedia but Simply Media according to the packaging. The web site indicated on the case doesn't appear to even exist. I have not tested the fax # stamped on the CD.

I have used Simply Money for 8 years and am generally pleased with the product. I was hoping to find the much needed bug fixes, including some annoying Y2K issues, fixed in this "new" release.

However if you seeking an alternate to the expensive and bloated Quicken or MS Money, this could be it. The reporting is more extensive and versatile than Quicken. It is easy to setup and use. The stored data are reliable. When windows goes south, I've never lost more than a couple of transactions.

The down side is: this product suffers neglect. Its had too many owners who do nothing. The online banking features are probably long since obsolete, but I don't use them. It is not a bad product and probably could compete with the "big boys" if someone would fix it and bring it up-to-date, a relatively modest effort.

Bottomline: Great value, full featured, quite useable, but needs some fixes and modernizing. It is not a new version , so don't get burned like me. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Why monopolies are bad
I switched from Windows (XP) to Mac OS X. Everything is better on the Mac, save Quicken. I used Quicken 2001 on my PC, so I expected Quicken 2003 for Macs to be an improvement. Wrong.

Quicken 2003 doesn't allow for as much customization of views as the PC version of two years earlier. Also, there's no home inventory, which Quicken 2001 for my PC had. Most importantly, I am can't upload my portfolio and balances to Quicken's website, which is one of the features I used to use the most. I had been in contact with a tech at Intuit's support group, but he eventually stopped responding to my e-mails. It doesn't crash on me regularly, but it does occur more often than with any of my other programs.

Two years down the road and the software is worse. Unfortunately, everything I've read about 2004 actually makes it sound worse! Too bad there are no other options - a little compeition might force Intuit to actually improve its product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Quicken 200x...
While the promise of this software is great, the reality is unfortunate, at least for me... It does some things very, very well - such as download & categorize bank & visa transactions... It unfortunately lacks functionality & features in other areas that they appear to market the software for, particularly in the investment area...

features I'd liek to see:
- foreign exchange for investments (stick to your local $ only!)
- non-proprietary import/export formats
- easy, accurate cross platform data exchange
- H+B option (also hurts import/export across platforms)
- adjusted cost base reporting for canadian investments (or why bother!?)
- tax categorization for canadians (should be an easy graft from the pc version)
- fewer flaws (not just 'bugs') in some feature executions
- eliminate 'sunset' (terminating) download capability & 'planned obsolescence'
- similar PC/Mac interfaces

many more advanced & better features seem to exist in the pc version & while neither seems truly intuitive, I can only suggest that aligning the two platforms (and offering an H+B mac version) might help generate the sales that would justify the R+D...

Chicken or egg question? Absolutely! You can't expect sales if the software doesn't work or is misrepresented in the marketing!

3-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive but not stable!!!
Quicken 2003 for Mac came load on my eMac so I decided to give it a try. I've always kept my financial records on an old fashioned spreadsheet so I thought this would be an easy and more excititing way of tracking my budget.

After spending a couple of evenings learning about the program and getting it set up it closed unexpectedly on me. After that I could open it but if I clicked on the Banking tab or tried to review my budget it would close again. I checked the Quicken on line support but could not find the help I needed there.

Eventually I discovered that I could open a backup copy of my data and that seemed to solve the problem. So I started working from the backup copy. Once again I was now setting up my catagories and shifting some into sub catagory positions when it closed again - same problem all over.

The problems I'm having seem to be primarily related to setting up the catagories so once I get through that process I may be ok.

I had no problems setting up the autodown load from my bank. It turns out I have to download my credit card information in a .qif file and then import it. That takes a couple extra steps but it worked fine also.

Good luck!

2-0 out of 5 stars Quicken use to be THE best of all programs
When Quicken first came out, it was simple, straightforward and rock solid. Over the years it has become more and more of everything except simple and rock solid. This is now a beast which rears its ugly head at all the worst moments.

If it has not crashed on you yet, it will one day. So what? Every application crashes once in a while, you say? Perhaps. But Quicken has a magical ability to take a crash and turn it into corrupted data. Once the data file has a little corruption in it everything just gets worse and worse. Crashes come more frequently and then suddenly a checking or credit card account tells you it is "out of balance" and a prior period needs to be re-reconciled. Ok, but when you try to do this it either will not let you or it appears in every way to be correct, but insists it is not. At that point the only way out involves significant reentry of data OR an expensive submission of your file to Intuit tech support for "cleaning." To top it all off, your confidence in your data is shaken badly. All you can think of is the possibility of ever needing to "redo the work again" another time.

I love the Quicken I remember, and this product probably still is that good until things go wrong. Once wronged, however, it is more than torturous to recover from.

If you proceed, and you probably will because Intuit has a virtual lock on the personal finance market, you must be careful to back up after EVERY session. Even more critical is the need to return to the last clean backup immediately IF your file EVER crashes. Do NOT ever continue to use a crashed file or you will be very sorry. Very sorry.

The truly disheartening fact is Intuit continues to sell us an application containing the same bugs in version after version. They add a handful of features each year to tempt us to part with another chunk of change, but we keep seeing the same pimples and quirks carried forward. Many of us update our copy each year not to get any new features, but in the hopes they actually fixed our least favorite bug. All too often they have not, but we keep hoping.

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid Quicken 2003 for Mac at all costs!
This is my first Amazon review, but I just had to chime in with others who have used Quicken for 10+years now because I am so frustrated with this version. My entire financial life is in Quicken Mac, and I am SO unhappy that I upgraded to 2003. My 12MB file with the last 10+ years of my life (loans, investments, credit cards, rental properties, etc. -- probably one of the larger Quicken files around) is at risk. You can't go back once you upgrade. Save yourself the aggravation, and wait for something better than 2003, unless you really don't mind starting over from scratch if things get hosed.

I have a G4 and a PC. The two primary things I still do (only) on the Mac are Quicken and iPhoto, and I feel locked-in to both programs. However, I'm *very* seriously considering dumping Quicken 2003 for Mac and moving to the Quicken for Windows. I *never* thought I'd ever do that, but this version of Quicken continues to annoy me every time I use it. Worse, it is starting to make me question the validity of my data.

It crashes doing simple QuickReports (inexcusable), there are countless UI bugs like when hopping from one transaction to another or scrolling, there's no way to see the list of downloaded transactions once you've reconciled (as there was in previous versions), and loading my United Mileage Plus credit card transactions is more painful than ever as of Q2003: The browser link that Quicken launches is obsolete, meaning I have to manually log in. Then I have to manually enter the download dates, save to a .QFX file, and manually import that into Quicken (since downloading that file no longer auto-imports it into Quicken). In addition, it is darn near impossible to get some banking transactions to "match up" with entries I already have in my register. I've never been able to figure out why, but I end up accepting the downloaded transaction and deleting the one I entered (or one that was auto-entered as a scheduled transaction) because Quicken refuses to acknowledge that they're the same transaction. This is especially annoying for loan-related transactions. Investment tracking is also messed up. Capital gains reports are inaccurate (forcing me to re-enter everything manually in Excel at tax time) -- just moving shares from one brokerage to another resets the purchase date and throws off short/long term calculations. In addition, some of my mutual fund transactions seem to be missing (despite my reconciling each and every statement), leaving my Schwab register hopelessly unreconcileable. Finally, Quicken has NEVER handled employee stock option or employee stock purchase plan transactions (with the funky withholding that goes along with them) very well. I have to wonder if anyone at Intuit has ever tried to enter their own stock transactions.

Switching to Windows won't be easy or fun. Intuit's suggestion is to simply "export everything to QIF and re-import on the other side". However, there are so many things that don't export that you're guaranteed a mess after you import the QIF files (like account to account transactions, as I recall). I fear I'm going to have to write off my 10 years of data, maybe export my banking and credit card transactions (just to maintain the history), fudge the balances to get a good starting point, and then gradually start over. With over 50 active accounts, this will not be easy or fun and I resent having to waste the time to do it. The only plus is that I've tried to simplify my life and I won't have to bother entering old data from old (hidden) accounts that are no longer in use.

Intuit NEEDS to create a migration tool (Mac to Win or Win to Mac, as I've seen reviews from people who have tried to go either way) that seamlessly translates one format to the other without losing any data. In addition, a repair utility would be very welcome. With all of the crashes I've encountered, I'm sure there are problems in my data file. However, there is no way to validate or repair a Quicken file short of exporting and re-importing, and as already mentioned you're probably better off starting over from scratch.

I, too, have beta tested Quicken Mac in the past (and presented bugs to Intuit some of which were even fixed, as well as done user experience testing for Intuit), but this is a tough program to test with real-life data. The 2003 beta program (like other recent ones) required a one-way upgrade to the new format, and suggested that you keep both the old and new versions up to date with the same transactions. I couldn't understand HOW to do this when downloading online transactions (and especially with regard to making online payments), and they offered no help on the matter. So, I guess I partially blame myself for not being more active in this beta and providing more feedback. Somehow, I doubt it would've made a difference.

Adopting a program like this, for some of us, is a serious proposition. Not having a way out (e.g. migration to the presumably more stable and better maintained Windows version) is a real shame.

As a software engineer, I understand that deadlines are often more important (to a company with an annual release schedule) than quality and sometimes it means bugs are often deferred (or maybe not even found). It's unfortunate that that really seems to have been the case with Quicken Mac 2003.

I wish there was a more direct line of communication (for reporting and resolving bugs) with the company for those of us who are serious heavy-duty users of this software. If you're one of those people, you should avoid Quicken 2003 for Mac.

UPDATE 9/24/03: The early reports seem to indicate that Quicken Mac 2004 is no better than 2003. I've since purchased Quicken Windows 2004 and am trying to figure out just how much of my data I'm going to attempt to migrate (vs. leaving behind forever on the Mac). It all comes down to how much time I want to spend massaging, re-typing, and reconciling my transactions, one miserable account at a time... ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Functional - Do not be fooled by other reviews
I recently purchased a new iMac (made the switch from PC) and was distraught I would no longer be able to use Microsoft Money. I've been using it since 2000 and have had nothing but sucess.

After reading the mainly negative reviews first inclination was to go out and buy a new program (Moneydance, Quicken 2003, or Virtual PC to continue using Money) to handle my finances. Since Quicken 2002 Deluxe came pre-installed on my iMac, I decided to give it a try.

I am pleasantly suprised at its capabilities. It is not quite as intuitive as I would like but I think that has something to do with the layers and layers of options Intuit has built into this program. The ability to handle several bank accounts, credit card accounts, investment accounts, retirement accounts, loans, assets and liabilities is all there. There are built in reports to view various categories or view your entire portfolio of accounts at once.

In response to some other reviews let me address some of their comments:

1) In order for Quicken to download statements automatically you must do two things. One - activate the account you have created in Quicken to access information online. Two - contact your bank and have them set up your account for this purpose. It is at this time they will give you a PIN to use. One reviewer mentioned they tried every PIN # they had to no avail. That is correct - your bank gives you a special one to use for Quicken downloads. Another option - if that is too much of a hassle - is to log onto your bank's website and export history using Quicken Web-Download. Either way same end result - one method is set up once and activated by clicking one button. The other way involves a couple of steps each time.

2) Dates all default to 2020 and cannot be changes was another reviewer's comments. This happened to me once. The system defaulted to 2020 when I tried entering a date. After I recorded it, I went back and edited the date to 2002. A one time pain in my experience as it now defaults to 2002.

Overall this program is adequate to manage your personal finances. It has several useful reporting and reconciling features and does allow internet banking downloads. So why not five stars? The graphics / presentation / layout leave a lot to be desired. If you are using OS X, Quicken is a huge disappointment compared to other programs. Another reason for losing a star is that this program is not intuitive and requires research to get tasks done; the PDF version of the manual is over 400 pages.

5-0 out of 5 stars I am addicted to Quicken
I have been using Quicken since it's early DOS versions. In my humble opinion, there is simply no better way to organize all of your finances. Most banks and credit card companies will allow you to download transactions directly into Quicken (no file download from the institution's web site, and then import into Quicken) -- I'm talking about knowing your recent credit card transactions within a day or two (in case you are not the type to enter them in right when you get home). Manage all your brokerage accounts, 401k, IRA, track your mortgage, car payment, etc. It is all there, and come tax time - you will be sitting pretty when you need to import your neatly categorized Quicken transactions into TurboTax or TaxCut.

You will not be disappointed, I highly recommend Quicken 2002 Deluxe or Suite.

1-0 out of 5 stars Misleading Product Ended Up Costing More
Product was not full version as implied. In order to use it I had to call company and pay more money. Would never buy from here again.

2-0 out of 5 stars Umm ... it doesn't crash often.
I was a big fan of Quicken 5 years ago, but this version is abysmal. Features that are advertised on the box, but "discontinued", a user interface that takes some time to get used to, and a serious bug that I can't get anyone at Quicken to respond to. I created a 401k account, added two mutual funds, gave them both initial balances, then corrected the balances when I found my account information. The problem is that the updated amounts are correct in the register, but are not correct in any other reports. I can't get it to refresh the data in the reports without deleting the account. I give up. Going to try to find a copy of Quicken from the mid 90's.

1-0 out of 5 stars Glad they stopped selling it
Do not pay for this. This came preinstalled on my eMac. What a waste! It often quits unexpectedly! I was using Quicken Deluxe 99 on Windows 95 and I never had so many problems as I do with this version. The layout is unintuitive, and nearly unusable. It spawns a new window for every account. There is just so much that I can't do in this version that I could on the Windows version. Customization is one. Another is that the reports are limited to 64 columns, I had hundreds of columns QD99 under Win95. I could understand if the current Windows version had extra features but this is 4 years later! How Intuit could release such rubbish baffles me. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Review of QuickBooks 6.0 for the Mac
QuickBooks Pro 2004, produced by Intuit, is a software program that allows you to manage the fiscal side of your business, such as invoices, estimates, timesheets, and payroll, among other things. It also has the ability to export to Microsoft Excel, allows for automatic backups, and, of course, the much welcomed file conversion capability from previous QuickBooks' formats. The QuickBooks line has always been highly respected in the financial field, and I was eager to dive in and begin running it through its paces.

The computer requirements, according to the overlay emblazoned upon the front of the software package, is Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X as an operating system; however, Intuit's website states more defined "recommended" requirements of the operating system, i.e., Mac OS 9.2.2, Mac OS 10.2.7, or Mac OS 10.3 as the minimal OS. The recommended system RAM is 128MB, the required hard drive space is 100MB. In addition, a CDROM and color monitor capable of supporting millions of colors and a minimum resolution of 1024 X 768 is needed. Requirements for use of an "add-on" product named Aatrix Top Pay may vary from what is used by QuickBooks Pro 2004.

Installing QuickBooks Pro 2004 is relatively easy, just insert the CDROM, the contents should then automatically appear on the desktop once the CD spins up, and then simply double-click the "QuickBooks Pro 6.0 Installer" icon and installation begins. Here is where I discovered the exacting requirements of an operating system needed to run QuickBooks. I attempted to install QuickBooks onto my Macintosh running Mac OS 9.1 but the installation stopped itself and informed me that Mac OS 9.2.2 is required. Okay, easy enough to fix but I really wanted to use it on that particular Mac and I did--and still do--not want to upgrade to Mac OS 9.2.2, so I ejected the CD, walked over to my iMac, and began the installation process over. After installation, I double-clicked the QuickBooks icon and was greeted with a registration screen warning that the program requires registration before your 25th use of QuickBooks. After I selected the remind-later option, I was presented with the actual program screen.

Keeping in pace with the Macintosh graphical user interface, the interface is nice and simple, and really easy to navigate. This simplicity carries over to your options, which are to open a user's guide, sample file, or existing file, or to create a new file. That is as straightforward as it gets.

QuickBooks Pro 2004 is very configurable. Once you are up and running, if there is anything you do not understand, an answer may usually be found in the provided user's guide or the online FAQ file at their website. And, yes, you can even call for telephone technical support which varies from annual support plans to a per-incident charge. It's up to you. In fact, I find the program so user-friendly--and it is not surprising because of its long history in the industry--that it seems to fit users with varying degrees of experience. Any user level from beginner to expert should feel quite comfortable navigating through the application.

As a few examples of the user-friendly orientation of the program, I provide the following overviews. One of the main tasks of business owners is building and viewing reports, and this program offers of one of the easiest report builders because it's built in! Payroll is actually handled by Aatrix Top Pay, utilizing the information in your QuickBooks file, and the way it works with QuickBooks is among the best examples of ease-of-use. Invoicing is just a click away. You select items to bill your customer from within the appropriate heading's contextual drop-down menu and QuickBooks fills in the rest. One thing I do like is the capability to "personalize" messages in a document, i.e., bill, invoice, etc., so you can include a simple "Thank you for your business" or anything else you would like to say to your customers. You choose what customer messages to include from a drop-down, and, yes, you can add or delete messages at will. Nice feature.

Bottom line: Does QuickBooks Pro 2004 perform well? Yes. Do I recommend it? Yes.

1-0 out of 5 stars thank you 'centuryvii' for your review
I have been using version 5 for a couple of years now but would like the ability to download my bank statements since my banking institution is offering this for free for a year. However, after reading centuryvii's review I don't think I will be upgrading since Pro 6 doesn't offer this feature as well.
I was on the phone for quite some time with QuickBooks/Intuit but never did get a straight answer to this question.
I was hoping that downloading would be able as it is with Quicken but unfortunately...

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible
The Mac version (6) just doesn't work like it should. I tried updating my company files from the windows version 2002- it took a great deal of time with tech support and there was no way it could be done by just reading the manual.
The fatal flaw however is with the payroll module by Aatrix. This thing is horrible. I might as well use a spread sheet. It would be easier!

4-0 out of 5 stars NO Quickbooks multi-user on Macintosh network
A nasty little secret - Intuit does not support multi-user access in Quickbooks for Macintosh, so a small business with 2 - 3 people can't all have the financials open - must use one at a time, have to close out to let someone else open the system. Very disappointing! They seem to have no interest or commitment to fixing this flaw.

Also the web version only works on PCs, so that isn't an option either.

Good package overall, but this is a killer problem for us - we're looking to switch to something else - MYOB, etc.

3-0 out of 5 stars Regarding the Payroll component
Small business owners need to be aware that this program uses Aatrix Top Pay for the payroll function. The payroll package has a goofy user interface, but what bothers me is that you need to pay Aatrix about $130 a year to get tax table data updated. The program has no options to the tax table information. It strikes me pretty steep to pay $130 yearly for updates to the tax tables. The payroll function also makes mistakes on printouts of the check stubs when checks need to be reprinted. It also drops summaries of amounts paid year to date when something like a bonus is not included in a pay period. Aatrix did not reply to eMails regarding these bugs. I have searched for another pay package that can be used with QB Pro 6 for the Mac, but no one else provides a solution.

The Aatrix gets by on payroll, but has definite problems and you will pay over a hundred a year for software updates. There are no other software options for Payroll in Quickbooks Pro 6 for Mac. ... Read more
