Quicken Canada Starter vs Deluxe - Differences?

Does anyone know, if you are NOT using Quicken for investment tracking, what the real differences are between Starter and Deluxe?

The official Quicken page suggests it is being able to customize your budgets. However I run Starter and I am able to customize my budget easily (e.g. adding and deleting line items, editing each month individuallly for each line item) so I have no idea what Quicken's page is referring to.

So it seems to me, investments aside, there is no difference. True?

    Hello Dave. Appreciate your question.

    Quicken Deluxe provides the ability to download transactions from your bank work with investments and allows you to make your own reports. Quicken Starter does not have these options available. You can use the program to download transactions from your bank and use the built-in reports. 

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Quicken Harold, thanks for your reply.

    With (Canadian) Starter, I can in fact create customized reports for my checking, savings and credit card accounts - I do it all the time. Perhaps the entry level American and Canadian versions are different in this regard?
