Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Hi, I haven't logged in for a while, basically because I haven't had to make any further improvements or corrections to the Moneystar spreadsheet. I notice that the latest version has since been downloaded 24 times in total, which in my view constitutes a success... I'm only a little sad that, out o...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Hi there, The attached zip file (containing Moneystar.aut only) corrects an error which would prevent DD, SO or cheque expenditure based on savings funds, which was supposedly made possible in the last modification, from being correctly deducted from the budget. Hopefully, with this, I've finally sq...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Hi yet again, Version 21 (by which I mean zip file 21) fixes the cheque problem, allowing cheque payments - and now direct debits and standing orders also - to be deducted from kitties (funds) in the savings section of the budget, even though the actual debits occur in the user's current account. Th...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Ah, well... :) I don't know if you've looked back over the posts on this topic, but I've been developing this budget worksheet, and using it every week, for about 22 years. I first learned to program in Commodore Basic on a Commodore 64, and even co-wrote some commercial educational software for tha...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Hi Steve, Thanks for your post! I'd like to, but I simply don't have the skill-set to do it. I've tried teaching myself Visual Basic but lack of free time, and my age - 60 - are against me on that. I'd be happy to cooperate, though, with anyone who does know how to write for modern platforms, to pro...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Hi, Moneystar Worksheet Oddities... I've just noticed a couple of eccentricities in the budget which I thought I'd mention, just out of interest: If, one week, extra money is allocated to a targeted kitty, then, in the same week, money transferred out (leaving the target at the same increased level)...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

PS: If version 19 has caused a problem: the previous week's Occasional Income will correct itself at the next update, when replaced by the current week's data. I have written a single-use worksheet "Moneystar Fix" to clean up the part of the data file relating to the Credit Card Reserve. It cannot r...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

URGENT: Please do NOT use the most recently uploaded version (19)! It's quite amazing how much trouble can result from missing a single character out of a macro, as I did, in the last modification! The error affects the saving and retrieval of content and target data for the Credit Card Reserve kitt...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Hi,
It was only yesterday, when I tried to enter my credit card payment as expenditure from the Credit Card reserve that I found that a recent modification, made to fix something else, had caused the loss of my selected payment method. The attached version fixes that!
Cheers,
Charlie

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Hi yet again, A couple more little bugs fixed! Being positive about it, all the main macros and formulas appear bug-free: these are minor omissions from the most recently-added function (incorporating emergency income into the budget). The Guide has NOT been modified since the last upload but I've i...

Re: Macro-Based Spreadsheets

PS: For those kind souls who have indulged me the past months by downloading the Moneystar budgeting tool, here we go again... The latest, improved, corrected version wasn't quite as improved and corrected as it should have been, so please see my other topic for the *genuine* latest, improved, corre...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Oops! Hello again...
Maybe it's just old age, but I let a couple of simple errors through in the last version, and the Guide revision wasn't quite up to the mark, so... files attached!
Cheers,
Charlie

Macro-Based Spreadsheets

Hi! Up until now - as you may know - I've been posting a series of revisions of a budgeting worksheet, Moneystar, which runs under As-Easy-AS for DOS. (If, by the way, you've downloaded any in the past, please be aware of the *latest*, improved, corrected version, posted under my previous topic with...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Hello again, I've now (subject to long-term testing!) fixed the budget targeting problem so that if a kitty's content exceeds its target, the target will rise automatically to match it. However, a target may only be lowered manually. This new version also fixes a few minor bugs, improves the budget ...

Re: Using As-Easy-As for DOS with Windows XP

Hi yet again, Please (in case you planned to) don't download the very latest version of Moneystar with the targeting changes!! Using it reminded me why I tried the modification before and didn't like it - it didn't work properly! Specifically, it didn't let the user make up shortfalls in fixed targe...
