ALFRED : Personal Budgeting Solution

Xander Hacking

Executive Summary 

Keeping a budget can be a difficult process, which means it is often neglected. It is impossible to follow a non-existent budget, so when I neglect to keep one, money seems to disappear much faster than I intend. In using a spreadsheet, or trying off the shelf solutions, I found that the process became too unwieldy, or neglected features which are important to me for keeping a budget. For my project I created a simple piece of budgeting software, which allows the user to make a budget, record transactions, and view reports. By simplifying the process of creating a budget, I’ll be able to better manage my finances.


To run the application, you only need the ALFRED.xlsm file. The app relies on the alfredDB.mdb database file, but if it can't find the file in the same folder as itself, it created a new database file all the basic data needed to run the application.


 Note: The application works on Windows 7, but I haven't verified it for Windows 8.1
