    Open Office. Works like Microsoft Excel.
    I consider myself to be a male feminist. Is that allowed?

    For many years have used MS Money and not come across anything that remotely comes near it. MS stopped supporting it years ago but it can be downloaded from MS free of charge. Has good features for managing numerous different bank/savings accounts a a good choice for reports. Have looked at length for an alternative, especially when Windows 10 came out as MS Money was not initially supported, but is now, and found nothing that came anywhere near

    Acemoney lite is free but is limited. If you can find a version of Quicken that is excellent but has a few foibles when operating under Windows 7 onwards (which I put up with).

    I use AceMoney and paid for it. The free version is literally useless as most people have more than a couple of accounts. I migrated to AceMoney from MS Money as I wanted to use supported software. At 40 USD, it seems a bargain.

    I'm sorry too. I'm very impressed with Money which I have used for at least 15 years.
