QuickBooks 2006: The Missing Manual: Boost Sales and Save Money with Quickbooks 2006

Sebastopol, CA--The much lauded and widely used QuickBooks, is a truly amazing program. Once mastered, it helps you take control of your company's financial future. It can help you boost sales, control spending, and save on taxes--once you've mastered the program. Intuit's QuickBooks program is complex and multi-faceted, but it doesn't come with a printed manual. Users are faced with the challenge of learning the ins and outs on their own. A printed manual is a must indeed.

QuickBooks 2006: The Missing Manual (Biafore, Pogue Press/O'Reilly, $29.99 US) speeds up the process of getting up and running. Step-by-step instructions in clear, often humorous, language lead you through the intricacies of the QuickBooks program. Highlights of this must-have guide's comprehensive coverage include:

  • Smart ways to set up your files to save you time and money
  • How to use new navigation tools to simplify and speed up your work
  • How to get the most out of QuickBooks 2006 by making sound decisions in everyday accounting
  • How to run reports, track audit trails and use other QuickBooks tools to improve your company's performance
  • Time-saving options that harness the power of QuickBooks for online banking, data-sharing with programs such as Microsoft Outlook and Excel, and more.
  • Biafore also introduces features new to QuickBooks 2006, including:

  • The QuickBooks Home page, which quickly and easily launches your accounting tasks and gives you quick access to your Chart of Accounts, online banking, and more
  • Customer Center, Vendor Center, Employee Center, and Report Center--all navigation tools to organize your information into compact, easy-to-access dashboards
  • Streamlined menus that consolidate duplicate entries and commands
  • Totally revamped Payroll Setup wizard to create the payroll items, accounts, and employee records you need
  • Continuous, always-on audit trail tracking
  • More easily accessible Report Center, which replaces and amplifies the previous edition's Report Navigator
  • One-step synchronization of contact information with the new, free download, QuickBooks Contact Sync for Microsoft Outlook
  • Throughout the book, the author evaluates features to help you decide which ones are the most useful for you and when to use them.

    First-time QuickBooks users and veterans upgrading from earlier editions will find "QuickBooks 2006: The Missing Manual" extremely useful. Beginners should take note of "Up to Speed" boxes that supply important introductory information, while more experienced users will garner technical tips, tricks and shortcuts from "Power Users' Clinic" sidebars. You'll be amazed to discover how much easier and user-friendly--and quicker--this top-notch business accounting and management program is when you have QuickBooks 2006: The Missing Manual at your side.
