I have the 2003 accountant edition of quick books and its kinda hard to figure out, alot of things i dont need. Maybe because its the accountant edition but it was already on my computer when i got it. have they made the program more user friendly? mine i guess is a little outdated...is the newer version any better than what i have or would i be wasting my money? about how much can i expect to pay for the program? thanks

i also have lawn pro and its good, but i dont think its much good for anything other than mowing. i just need something more than what it offers. i do other things besides mowing

Quickbooks does take awhile to learn. You could hire a bookkeeper to help you out, or take a class at a community college.

yeah i dont really have the money for a book keeper right now, that would be great though if i could afford that. Just want to hear from some guys that have the newer edition of quickbooks to see it its any better than the 2003.

I upgraded from QB 2000 to QB pro 2007 this year. There are some changes, but I don't think its any easier to use.

My accountant teaches me how to use it when I visit with her. I thought I couldn't afford it, either, but now I've found her services to be priceless! My initial consultation cost $300 last year, and now I'm there MAYBE 1 hour per month ($50)- She has helped me to learn quickbooks, and just recently she found many more deductions and credits on my taxes than I would've found on my own. If she saves me 1 hour per month of bookwork and phone calls (she saves much more than that), then she's worth every cent!
