What is ExpressCheck?

ExpressCheck has a simple goal in life, to help you manage your
checking accounts. Because the various screens look just like
your paper checks, deposit slips and check registers, you will
find the program extremely easy to learn and use. But Express-
Check goes far beyond the usefulness of a check register. Every
check and deposit can be recorded to various budget codes that
you set up. This makes it possible for you to see at any time
during the year where you stand in regard to your spending. How
much do you spend on food each month? How much have you given in
tax deductible donations? Car payments, electricity, gasoline,
entertainment? Without ExpressCheck you either guess at where
you spent all your money, or you spend long hours with a calcu-
lator. With ExpressCheck you can find out in just a few seconds.

Entering checks and deposits is fast and enjoyable. Recurring
payments can be entered with two keystrokes. Budget codes can be
defined on the fly and you can pop up a window with all the
currently defined codes whenever you need them. ExpressCheck
will even print the checks for you on any kind of tractor feed

Pre-defined reports can be printed that give you monthly or
year-to-date totals for any or all budget codes, a check register
with running balance, all transactions that have not yet cleared
the bank, checks or deposits that includ certain budget codes,
or all checks made out to certain payees. Many of the figures
that go on your tax return are at your finger tips.

A complete Bill Reminder System is included in the package. Indicate
your bills and how often they are due and ExpressCheck will actually
remind you when they are coming up, and when you say so, will
automatically enter them for you and even print the checks if you like.

  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:
