This group doesn't look too promising, but hopefully someone can help. I\nhave been using MS Money since 2002. Needless to say, my money file has\ngotten huge and Money runs sluggish. Is there anyway to make the file\nsmaller without losing data or starting over? If I could even pare it down\nto the last five years that would help a lot. However, since all files are\ninter-connected I can't simply go in and delete the first five years. I am\ntotally dependent on MS Money for keeping track of my finances, so I really\ndon't know what to do. I have upgraded the program several times, so it\nisn't like I am using the old Money 2002. I downloaded the latest Money\nDeluxe from the Microsoft site, but that simply uses your backup file and\ngoes from there and there isn't any technical support for this software.\nAnyone?
