Twice Monthly Deposit Question

Guest

I get paid twice a month, on the 15th and the last day of
the month. However, if either of those dates falls on a
weekend or holiday, we're paid the first workday before
that date. How do I set this up in Money 2004? Thanks!

Set it up for a 31st and tell it twice a month. Money will then get the
15th/last day part right. The weekends and holidays have to be adjusted by
hand. There is no better way.

Thanks, Dick, I'll try that. Perhaps MS will include this
rather mundane task in one of their future upgrades--I'm
sure I'm not the only one who has this issue.

My wife's paycheck has this problem. The Money recurrence scheduler
basically is lame and essentially unchanged for a decade now. Maybe M05 or
M06? I see where Q05 has made some great strides here, but the write-up on
the web would not lead me to believe it's gotten smart enough to shift
around weekends and holidays.

Before I found the Newsgoups I found the problem
reporting link for Money, and I posed the same question
there. The MS rep didn't make the suggestion you made,
which actually works pretty well--I only had to adjust
two or three dates over the next year. He did suggest I
submit it to their "wish list," so perhaps one day....
But I'm not going to hold my breath! Getting Money to
recognize holidays might be difficult since its calendar
doesn't include holidays, and many of those dates change
from year to year. But I wouldn't think it would be a
great feat of programming to get it to recognize
weekends. I guess we'll see. Thanks.
