Should I upgrade?


S

sh

I'm using Quicken 2004, and I'm quite happy with it.

I received a notice from my bank (Wachovia) that they will no longer
support Q2004, and that I should upgrade to Quicken 2007.

Do I really need to? Is there some difference in the downloaded record
format that Q2004 will no longer recognize?

Is Wachovia just trying to limit the products they support (but there
really is no difference between the versions), or is there some real
functional obsoleteness in Q2004 that I should just upgrade.

Thanks for any advise.

Intuit will be preventing Q2004 from downloading in April.
After the April sunset date, Q2004 will not be able to download
from any financial institution or to download quotes. All
features of Q2004 that do not depend on online access will work
as before.

As John mentions you will not be able to d/l info from FI's which it sounds
as if you do now. However, if all you want are daily/weekly/monthly quotes
this can still be done w/yahoo finance & csv export/import. It is certainly
more work than doing it thru qkn but it does work (it also works w/2006).

I have the same problem since I am using Q 2004 on a Windows 98SE
machine. The 2007 box says XP and on for a platform so I could not
upgrade to 2007 using my present computer. I will solve it by buying a
new Vista machine when they come out, not because of Quicked, of
course, but that will solve that slight problem.

Hmm. I am still able to download quotes using my Quicken **2002**.
