Money for the Handheld PC Title

Microsoft briefly flirted with the use of Microsoft Money as a mobile companion application on the Handheld PC, and dropped support in favour of developing its Pocket PC versions.

In an official capacity, the Handheld PC version of Microsoft Money is only capable of communicating with Money 2000 and 2001. HPC:Factor has generated some modified client sets which enables users of later Microsoft Money versions to synchronise with their desktop PC via ActiveSync.
