I have it saving my budget now. I had to do tow things. I moved the
budget to my budget folder and deleted it from the desktop. Then I
created a shortcut so I could access it from the desktop which is
what I thought was the case.

Next I had to reboot.

But then I lost my profile and Second copy failed to load. I wonder
if this is because it is a trial version.

I rebuilt teh profile and tested it, works fine. This will be my
program if I can figure out the reason it does not load on boot or
remember my profile.

Ben, I assume you read vpeters post above. His description indicates
it may also be one that you may want to do a "Test Drive" if you
haven't run out of Gas...

Heck, why would I do this again if I don't have to? This is not the least bit fun.

I rebooted and it launched this time and remembered my profile. It still shows that the file is in use on my budget, but not on other spreadsheets. But it still saves the last version. I have been opening and saving with test numbers to make sure it has the last version.

I set it up for 10 minutes rather than when closing. I would probably change that to once a day when I get comfortable.

I am about half way through the learning curve, or at least as much as I want to know.

Next step I wil create profiles for my other stuff, like images. Then I will test it for a couple of days to make sure it is stable, and always launches. Then I will buy it or look for the next round of drudgery.
