I want to stay with Quicken because I have so much data in it for personal and my small business, I don't want to have to start over with a different program.
As far as using Excel, All the sales people at the company I work for have company-issued laptops with Excel,I don't have one (not in sales). When the company went to computer generated reports I was left out in the cold, they wouldn't give me Excel to install on my personal PC because their license only allowed for installation on company PC's, and wouldn't accept hand written reports anymore. One of my friends has Microsoft Office so I borrowed the disc from him so I could get Excel. So I'm using my personal machine for company business, I also communicate with accounts via email, submit orders and schedule work via email as well.
