It should be on your menu under Office. Not a bad program, if I download my banking history into excel there are to many collumns and formatting is all over the place. Download it into oo calc and it is actually formatted properly.

No disrespect or slights intended, but I'm a bit curious...

I'm not in the least bit inferring anything by this.
