"Lousy ^&%^*()(*U program."
It works just fine as long as you do what the program wants YOU to do. Little like Hal in 2001. I keep listening for a little voice from the middle of my computer telling me, " I can't do that, Dave."
Try to have the program act as YOU (the owner) want it to, fugetaboudit. It has a mind of its own.
I've run this program and its predecessors for years -- probably close to 20 or longer. I've used both Mac and PC versions and have got along alright until just recently.
The program started to nag me about upgrading (free) and finally I did. Now, because of a federal law they claim was passed in 2005, it will NOT print my checks. My checks -- sold to me by Intuit since 2005 -- don't meet the federal rules, they claim, so that they may comply with the Federal rules, they've put some block on my computer -- with their free upgrade I'd guess -- which prevents the printer from printing my checks. At the very least they could have told me that if I upgraded that this would be the result; they did not say a word. I've sent a message to their tech people asking them how to fix this problem. Whadda ya want to be that it can be easily fixed by the purchase of some more of their printed checks at a dandy little price, I'll post an amendment to this review as soon as I have heard from Intui; they said I should hear from their techies in 2 days.
But am going to stay as far away from Intuit hereafter as I can possibly get; unless you too want to start writing out your checks in long hand, you might want to avoid them too.
