Don't be fooled by the name: MyBusinessCheckbook is more than a simple checkbook balancer. It's a low-end home and small business money manager that also prepares budgets and reports. You can import financial data from Quicken and Checkfree and export it to Lotus worksheets or as ASCII files. Continuous-feed check blanks are available.
You can set up multiple accounts and track them by user-defined categories, with a ceiling of 50,000 entries. Installation is uncomplicated. The fairly intuitive user interface drops down menus over its main working screen, which features scrolling check blanks and a running account balance.
The package offers neither written documentation nor an F1 help key; instead, you'll find instructions in a separate file within the program. Telephone support is prompt and knowledgeable. While not recommended for a large business or an individual with a complex financial portfolio, MyBusinessCheckbook is fine for consumers and companies with minimal cash flow.
