Q2002 Deluxe = Q2005 Premier?


G

Gregg

I currently have Quicken 2002 Deluxe for Windows. Back then, the entry-
level version was Basic, and the next version up was Deluxe.

Now, according to www.quicken.com, there is no Basic, and the entry-level
version seems to be Deluxe.

So I am confused about the appropriate ugrade path. Should I get Deluxe or
Premier if I want to avoid losing features?

Thanks.

There is a basic version, Quicken just omits to mention it. Look back in the
group and you will find plenty of posts mentioning it.

So I see. But I am still confused, because some of the features Intuit
lists for the 2005 Premier version, were listed as features of the 2002
Deluxe version. For example, Manage 401(k), Minimize Capital Gains tax.

Thanks.

Grade inflation and maximizing profits.

I believe you will have to get Premier in order to not loose features. I am in
the same spot as you but am still debating as to weather I want to
"downgrade/upgrade" to 2005P. I will loose some of the things I like about
2002D in order to get new features in 2005P.

My main reason not to buy and really try Acemoney is that I would need to
buy 2 copies in order for me to be able to run it on both my desktop and
laptop. The other main reason is lethargy - the need to probably start
just about totally anew. Of course I could just keep Q2002 DL (US) and
keep it up todate as well ...

i too am a Q02 holdout and just got my Q05P freebie in the mail today.
Though i'm still debating whether to install it. What did you mean by

" I will loose some of the things I like about
2002D in order to get new features in 2005P."

What featuires are gone?

Been using Q since 1993, the investment aspects are what i'm most
interested in.

TIA

I have used Quicken since version 4 or 5 in DOS days and most recently
upgraded from Quicken 2002 to Quicken 2005. The interface is
different, so you will need to spend a little time looking for things.
The investment section is a bit different. The major difference I see
is data entry for investment accounts. In Q2002 you could click on a
column in the regester and key in Div, Interest, Xout, etc. In 2005
you click on a button that says something like Enter a transaction.
Then a windows opens and you enter the data in a separate window. The
same differences exist if you want to edit an existing transfaction.

After using the new system for about a month, I am used to it. In my
view this system is faster and easier if a person has say 3 or more
transactions to enter at one time. If you download your investment
transactions, you need never use the system. Most brokerage houses
have downloading of transactions available.
