LONG REVIEW

Money Smith is a full featured home and small business
accounting package for Windows 3.0

Money Smith exploits the windows environment to make
a great home finance tool. Unique press and point help
lets you push on the tool or menu command you need help
on and instantly brings up that topic. A toolbar has
all of the common functions across the top - letting
you instantly view and change account balances and
transactions. The 'what you see is what you get' graphs
and reports can be shown side by side with your accounts.
The graphs and reports even update as you change your
accounts and balances automatically. The new
multi-document interface makes Money Smith both flexible
and easy to use.

Money Smith uses a powerful double entry accounting
system to track all of your income, expenses, assets,
etc.. - without the traditional complexity of other
accounting systems. You define what to track - up
to 200 accounts are supported. Sample files make
setting up your accounts a snap - just put your own

starting balances in and you're ready to go. Multiple
views let you look at all your account balances or
zero in on any selected account to see just what's
happening. As always - accounts are recomputed while
you view them so there's no guessing involved.

The transaction system is simplicity itself. Just
enter the date, any description you want, the amount,
and select the to and from accounts from lists of
accounts. Need a new account - just type the name
in and Money Smith will add it on the fly. Do you
have any regular bills or transactions? Just press
the 'Recurring' button to make any transaction into
an automatic one - and you specify how often it runs
and whether Money Smith should bother you with it
or just do it!

Once you have entered some data Money Smith gives
you plenty of ways to look at it. A full suite of
standard financial reports and color graphs are
included. All of the reports and graphs are
dynamic. They actually change while you watch when
you're entering new data.

Advanced features like investment tracking,
password protection, defineable account groups
(called categories) and end of year processing
round out Money Smith's features. These cater
to the more advanced user who wants a bit more
from their financial program.

Naturally Money Smith is archived with complete
documentation (both online and printable), order
forms, examples, and a windows setup program to
install it on your hard disk. The shareware
version is not crippled at all - full functionality
is enabled.

Registration provides you with a registered
disk (free of shareware intro dialogs), 90 days
of support, and if you register before Dec 31,
1992 you get a coupon for a free upgrade to
the next version. The author is a member of the
Association of Shareware Professionals and
conforms to their standards of user support.

Requires: IBM Compatible 286 or 386 running
Windows 3.0 in extended or standard mode. A
mouse is also required.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
