This is great software that does exactly what it is supposed to do; balance your checkbook! This program makes it easy to keep a running total of your available balance, especially with internet banking. I can add entries and review balances virtually any time with this program. You will never need a calculator as everything is automatically totaled every time you make an entry. This program also lets you print out every transaction for any parameters (week, month etc.) you ask it to. I like to make print outs of my transactions monthly for record keeping and budgeting. You can also look back on every transaction you ever inputted without printing, which is very helpful should you ever need to reference what you paid for something 3 days ago or 3 years ago! I can honestly say this is the only software program I have ever used that I have not cursed at any time after years of use! I will also echo another users comment on their excellent customer service. I contacted them after my hard drive crashed a while ago fully expecting they would make me purchase the program again. I was pleasantly surprised when I received an email from them that provided me with a link where I could download the program again free of charge. Oh by the way I received this response within ten minutes of emailing customer service! I guarantee this will not happen with any of the large software vendors should you have a question regarding their product.

I bought Checkbook many years ago to simplify matters when reconciling my checkbook. I have many deposits and withdrawals each day as I own a very active small business.
I also keep our 2 personal checkbook registries on Checkbook. It easily lets you access each separate account, and it is S-I-M-P-L-E. I went nuts trying to figure out MS Money and Quikbooks. For what I needed, they were overkill and way too intense of a learning curve. I have received great customer service when upgrading to different operating systems. Every software company could take a lesson on customer service from Dataware Games. After reading these reviews I am going to get the Flash Drive version.

I bought this years ago and continue to use it to this very day. It is simple to use and works just like any registry you receive with your checks. You are able to add as many bank accounts as you want. I use mine for all my bank accounts(checking, savings, loans). I have even used it to record when people have borrowed money. I can show them when they paid me, how much they paid me, and how much they still owe.

The customer service is excellent. I have had several new computers since I bought the original checkbook. Each time, I notified the customer service and was able to get it on my new computer without any problems.

Recently, I bought the Flash Drive version and love it just as well. With the Flash Drive version, the customer service explained to me how to transfer my data from the Checkbook on my computer to my Flash Drive version.

If you want an easy to use and reliable Checkbook, I would order this today.

This program is a waste of money. It's clunky to use. For instance, you have to enter in dates manually, including adding in backslashes. This can really slow you down if you have to create a number of entries. Editing is very primitive. Indeed, the whole program is primitive. It's also very annoying to use. Whenever you scroll up or down using the arrow keys, it complains when you reach the beginning or the end. You get an annoying popup accompanied by an error sound at the end as well. Also, if you're trying to make a new entry at the bottom, you'll get this popup if you click anywhere but on the date form field first. You can't even resize the window. If you have a larger screen, the window might be too small to work with (perhaps it was designed for a 800x600 screen). That's kind of annoying, too.

The program hasn't been updated in four years and it shows. Not even its developers think it's worthwhile, apparently having more or less abandoned it.
I bought it, downloaded it, and used it for a short time. It wasn't much better than using a paper-based check book. Then, I went looking for Microsoft Money Sunset Edition, available free, as that program was discontinued. It's four years old as well, but it's a much, much better program that's kind of a breeze to use. Even though it's four years old, it doesn't look and function like a refugee program from the early 1990's.

Love this program. Have used it for several years. Like it much more than others I've tried. Unfortunately, my financial situation does not require an accountant, or higher math. This program is easy to use & perfect for my household budget. Have also had to replace it a few times after computer crashes or some electronic misadventure, & they've always been most gracious about replacing my purchases. Excellent products &great service!

Although my wife has tried to keep track of our checkbook, it seemed she was always making a mistake. It would often take me an hour or more to reconcile the checkbook. I dreaded every bank statement. My wife ordered this software and now she doesn't even keep a checkbook register. She keeps all the debit receipts and enters them daily and when she writes check, she also immediately adds them to the dataware program. Now we no longer dread reconciling the checkbook. We often get it done in a matter of minutes. I was reluctant to buy this program and now I love it!

I bought Checkbook several years ago. Originally I tried their free trial version, liked it and bought the full feature version. When my original computer went to cyberheaven, the program didn't transfer to my new one(I presume because of the different OS). I contacted DataWareGames, explained the situation and they immediately sent me a link to re- download the program. I have a muscular disease that prevents me from maintaining a legible written register, so am pretty much dependent on Checkbook and its features. This program and DataWareGames have never let me down. They are fantastic people to deal with.

It is very basic as stated. It would be nice if the accounts could be tied together for transferring funds from one to another.
Best part is not having ads pop up and having to update the software annually.

I've been using Checkbook for a couple of years and have to say it's the best out there. It's so simple to use and has all the features you need. I will never switch to anything else!

A great way to balance your checkbooks and keep organized. Plus simple to setup and use. Can track multiple checkbooks.
