Although Microsoft Money will be supported through the end of 2010 many long time Money users are up in the air since they’ve been entering their financial data into the personal finance software package for many years.  Being able to go back and look at reports on past financial data is one of the benefits of using a software package for analysis and planning.

Since people want to be able to look back at their personal finance history over time, they’re concerned that they won’t have those years worth of financial data they entered in Money alongside new personal finance information they enter in the future in a new package.

In a recent email, Intuit gave an update on their ability to help out former Microsoft Money users.  According to the email, Quicken is able to transfer up to 10,000 transactions from Microsoft Money and they are working on making it easier for people to transfer more of their data into Quicken.

    Frugal Grad, yeah Quicken Online is free and a pretty useful tool. Of course, you can’t import your data from Quicken desktop products into Quicken Online so if you have years of data that you’d like to keep around and compare to your current data then you’d need something like Quicken Deluxe.

    I’m using free Quicken right now, try to get the hang of it. Not sure what’s the difference between the Delux and the Basic. Read the site but still don’t understand what. However, the free version works fine so I probably don’t have to worry about upgrading to anything for 2-3 more years.
