    My connections expire tomorrow. Will probably go a month and then (maybe) renew. The only connection I use it updating stock quotes.

    My advisor got me setup on this thing called eMoney. It’s ok but does not allow me to split a paycheck. I hear that YNAB has the same problem. I get that these programs are focused on helping you manage your cashflow, but I am too much of an accountant to be that simplistic. So far, Quicken it is.

    You can do exactly that without a subscription. I posted that earlier. Yahoo quotes, export to a csv file, clean it up in a spreadsheet app, then import into Quicken. You can do this for many years, without paying Quicken a penny.

    YNAB can split transactions.

    Based on some forum postings it seemed possible but laborious. Not true?

    click the split button and it gives you multiple entries and it even tallies the balance until you make it zero with the sum of the entries. Can't see how it could be much easier. This is the cloud version.

    YNAB is not for everyone. It took me awhile to "get" their approach, and frankly I hate that it's cloud.
