I do not use the classes as of yet. All I do is use the Items section. This works out pretty well. You just make up the different services you offer which creates a drop down list on your invoices. Also if you have accounts that are overdue you can use the statment in stead of the invoices ( The Statement form shows accounts 30, 60, and 90 days overdue) I hope this helps.<p>Rick Santo<br>Premier Lawnscapes Inc.<p>----------<br>http://mowerparts.hypermart.net<br>

Quickbooks is a great tool all the way around - payroll (and taxes), invoicing, expenses. The &quot;report&quot; features are very helpful to see where your money is coming from and going to.

Quick Books and Y2K. I use Quick Books also. According to my accountant, it is not Y2K compliant. I upgrading to Quick Books 99 - which is Y2K ready. You may want to verify if your accounting software is ready.

You guys are never<br>going to make any money if keep on<br>buying junky, clunky boxed retail<br>software.<p>Here is a list of complety FREE<br>programs.<p>http://www.sapphireus.com/<p>http://www.sun.com/products/staroffice/get.cgi<p>http://freewarehome.com/<p>Need a free isp:<br>http://www.netzero.com<p>

Quickbooks Pro 99 demo timer is easily defeated. GroundsKeeperPro and Blizzard Buster passwords are easily found by opening a file in WordPad(you figure out which one). CLIP and are also easily breached, but I have no use for either of those programs.<p>I agree, spend the money on a trimmer or groceries, there is plenty of software available.<br>

We have had great success with Quickbooks version 99 Pro, multiuser. It works on our network, and has proven itself to be reliable, with good company support, for NOT a lot of money. Every time we upgrade there are real improvements and real rebates. We use it for several companies and organizations, and the CPAs are able to use our files without a problem. We have used it since it was Quicken, QuickInvoice, and Quickpay.<p>----------<br>Phil Grande - Soundview Landscape Supply<br>http://members.aol.com/scagrider

I was strolling through this thread and noticed our buddy and long lost friend Eric ELM and my heart skipped a beat.

Then I noticed the dates. This is an oldie!

Go to Barnes & Nobles, or any other book store for that matter, and pick up an aftermarket book. "Quickbooks for Dummies" or I have found that books from the publisher McGraul Hill (I think that is the name) makes easy to understand aftermarket books. I do this with most software I purchase anymore, since most don't come with very good books. Most manuals for software these days are included within the software program....which IMO....sucks!
