where is the data now ? If it is saved in a file that ends .mny you should be able to recover it by installing the 2002 or newer version of ms money
then going to file / open
and browsing to the mny file to open it
you can only restore a file if it was created as a backup file rather than a data file
what type of file do you have and how are you trying to open it and what problem are you running into
I I could not recover theMicrosoft Money 2002 Home edition program but manage to save the backup files onthe hard Disk. I have installed the Microsoft Money 2004 Small Business edition. When trying to retore the backup files in the 2004 edition, I got the message that it is not possible as the two programs are not compatible for some reason as they do not come from the same country.The backup data files are still there.but the 2002 Money program is un retreivable. What can I do to read again those file in the 2004 edition now properly installed in the new computer.
Can you help?
Not to be rude to you or anything but
You were using a copy of ms money that is more than 10 years old
you were using a non us version
Money itself was discontinued in 2006 and still you continued to use it even though Microsoft stopped supporting it.
You did not keep your data files but somehow got a copy of backup files.
You do not have the original program disk that you installed it from.
And now you are giving me a bad rating because its just not possible to restore those files to a different version of the program from a different year and a different country.
do you really think that is fair to me ?
