I would like some advice on which personal financial software is best when comparing MS Money 2003 to Quicken Personal 2002.

At the moment I'm leaning to Money 2003 as I feel the budgeting side is better and overall it seems smarter.

I don't like the fact that I can't automatically download my bank statements unless I'm with a US bank using Money 2003 .

I understand that Quicken Personal 2002 can do this but I'm trialing a unregistered copy so this feature doesn't work.

Has any one got any advise on which they feel is a better product?

Quicken has Money beat in all versions I have used.

I have read reviews on recent "Money" versions but only by Americans.

In NZ go for Quicken.... Most Accountants would tell you the same thing. ( I think )

Forgot to say though that ANZ allow you to download the bank statement as Quicken or CSV (Comma Separated Values) which can be imported into Excel for example.

Thanks for your reply.

Have you used Quicken Personal 2002?

As I'm not all that impressed with the demo version I got...may be there are updates that are better.

I have used both and have bought Quicken Personal. I find it easy to use and the finance people do seem to perfer it. Its Aus/NZ too.
