a comprehensive personal finance program like Quicken, a complicated
separate Savings Bond program shouldn't be needed. The predecessor program (EEBVE) provided an
easy way to update the current and past values for US Savings Bonds for over 20 years.
Unfortunately, it had to be retired. However, that doesn't mean that the concept is dead.
I'm working on finishing a new program (SBPG), written from scratch, using modern tools. It will
be even easier to use, compatible with modern Windows systems, and should work indefinitely,
unless the Treasury changes their file format.
Each 6 months, download the new file
from the Treasury's website, run SBPG, and within seconds you'll have 6 months of bond data,
converted and ready to import into Quicken.
Until then, if you are a former EEBVE user, or want to set up your bonds the SBPG/EEBVE way
(see the help), you can download
data files generated from the developement version of SBPG.
