Just a thought. I have GNUCash and it works fine. But about 2 years
ago my Bank Wells Fargo started to improve their bank records I can get
to. I have 4 accounts and they provide any time I want to a way to
transfer any amount from one to another account. And it does it. If I
had GNUCash running I have to keep it up to date. But now I just copy
the data to my computer as a txt file that is easy to read.
