    Scott, if you click on his Profile, it will show his email address, click on it and it will bring up your email program with his address filled in. This forum is great.<p>----------<br>Eric@ELM<br>http://pages.prodigy.net/eric.erickson/index.html

    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.

    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>
