Money >> Problem Opening 2005 File in Money 2006 Premium

I'm unable to open up my 2005 Money file (approx 50 MB) in my new copy
of Money 2006 Premium. I've tried all the repair steps, but every time
I try to open the file, I get the "We're sorry, but Microsoft Money has
experienced an internal error and will have to restart" window every
time. I talked to the MS technical support group, but they were of no
help -- ended up telling me I'd have to export all of my info account
by account and try to import it into a new file, which would take me
much more time than it's worth (I might as well import it into
Quicken!)

Anybody else experiencing this problem? I'm guessing I have something
wrong with my file, but it works fine in Money 2005, so I'm not sure
how to diagnose.

Can you create a new file?

Note that you have a *.m14 file on your system. That is a copy of
the Money 2005 file before you converted it. I would put an extra
copy of that *.m14 file onto different media, such as a USB flash
drive, so no misfortune can happen to it.

Consider running salv.exe on your Money file to see if salv.exe can
make a repaired version.

Money >> Problem Opening 2005 File in Money 2006 Premium Thanks -- I can create a new file in 2006 just fine . . . and I've
tried running the salvage utility several times without success. When I
run the standard file repair, I get the message "Fixed records in BILL
table" every time I do it -- is that a clue? (I deleted all of my
bills, but still get this message.) Anything else I can try?
