I've been using Access for 3 years now and am considering trying Quick Books simple edition. I've designed and modified my MS database and am able to keep track of customers, jobs, dates, fees, mileage, accounts receivable, payments, taxes, etc. I feel I've done a pretty good job of designing my db and also have 2 degrees in the i.t. world so I think I know what I'm doing. However; I'm still contemplating trying QB simple edition because I see it's on sale this week for 40 bucks at our local Best Buy and other places. Does anyone think it's worth it? p.s. the reason I work in lawn care with 2 degrees in i.t. is because there are NO entry level jobs available. Tell any potential college age people this fact. Tough times in i.t........ enough of my babble. I appreciate everyone's opinions.
