I haven't seen T-Value in a couple years. I don't really like it personally. I find it isn't as capable, user friendly or accurate as I need.
The only thing I can think of that someone might want T-Value for if they had Omnisolve would be for amortizations and collections, but there are better programs for that like "Notesmith".
But, the comparison is of a palmtop computer the size of a calculator versus a computer. I don't use the palmtop when I am in my office in front of a computer, but in the field, it is invaluable. I could pop open a laptop computer, but even as light as they are, I don't like to carry them around.
When near my computer, I use spreadsheets I designed that work with Quattro Pro and Excel or I use an old dos program called the "Financial Abacus". For a simple calculation, I might load the smaller program of the Financial Abacus, but for anything complicated or multiple cash flows I load my spreadsheets.
If you want to try or look at the spreadsheets, they are available for free at:
There are no instructions for the spreadsheets and that drives the Excel people nuts. The spreadsheets need to have automatic calculation turned off due to the way I have laid them out. Every cell contains a formula and once 4 of 5 variables are entered, it will calculate for the fifth.
