I'm trying to figure out Quicken, so that we can be financially responsible. This is an admirable goal, but I'm beginning to think that my old Excel spreadsheet method is better. For one thing, I can actually indicate that my direct deposit is income, not just some random deposit. For another, I can export the information from my bank directly into .csv form. To be fair, I was able to successfully export my bank info. to Quicken once. I've tried about 10 times today (no exaggeration), and I'm still having no luck.
If you have any suggestions, I would LOVE to hear them. In the meantime I'm going to go beat my head against the wall for a little while.
