Brandon Shopay

Does anyone know of a utility, method, or anything that will take the dates
and reminders from Microsoft Money and import them into Outlook's
calaendar/tasks/to-do list etc.

I know theres got to be more people out there who would like to do this. I
can't be the only one. If there is a way to perform this task. PLEASE let
me know.

Thanks!

I haven't used Money in years but I do believe they have an export function
also. You can then import them into Outlook..I used to export to an Excel
spreadsheet.

I use Money, and if they offer an import reminders into Outlook feature,
it's well hidden. You also can't export reminders to Excel, just the
financial data. You can use MSN Money online and have the reminders sync
with the MSN Money website. It's a paid service, but free or reduced cost
for buyers of Money.

Agreed. There is no export to Outlook feature. And the synch with MSN can be
a disaster. One way synchs cannot be configured, so if you ever restore a
money file from a backup, you can end up trashing it the next time you
synch.

I'm pretty sure it was in the money newsgroup that I found a hint on
this -- it's not an automated method, and it's not as easy as one would
like, but it's a starting point for someone to write a script and make
it all happen:

* In Money go to the Reports gallery and choose What I Owe > Upcoming
Bills & Deposits.

* Customize that so that no extra rows/columns are shown (minimum seems
to be Date, Frequency, Payee and Amount)

* Customize you date settings

* From the left hand pane (or right-click menu) choose Send To > Desktop
which will save a CSV and XML file to your desktop, or alternatively
choose Export to Microsoft Excel.

* Edit the CSV file to remove the first line which is the title of the
report.

* Start MS Outlook and import the CSV file into your calendar.

* Customize the mapping so that the Date corresponds to the Start time
of the appointment and map the other fields appropriately.

Unfotunately you can't map the frequency of the bill directly, so you
will have to open the (only) occurrence of that bill in Outlook and set
the frequency yourself. Set your reminders at that time too.

It would be nice if someone could write a small VB or JavaScript program
to import these CSV files into Outlook Calendar with the frequency and
the reminders set.

This is my first time to enter a discussion group so bear with me. My question is not on this subject.

I am trying to use Microsoft money to download from my bank. (I am really a quick books user). I get the download from my bank into the money register I set up but my payee names are wrong. during my first download I saw that a check payee was empty so I went in and add the payee name down every time I download all of the check entries are in the name I change to.

Please someone help me. The bank can't
Money 2004?

OFX or QIF download? ; care to name the bank?

This seems irrelevant to Outlook, to me, so I am not cross-posting
to those groups.

You have to post questions in the appropriate newsgroup. Including the
Outlook newsgroups in your post is incorrect.
