Can't change invoice form in Microsoft Accounting Express 2007?

Hi -

I'm just trying our Microsoft Office Accounting 2007 Express, and I'm having trouble with printing invoices.  I've created custom invoice entry forms, and custom invoice templates in Word 2000, but if I print an invoice from within Accounting Express, it always comes out with the same canned form.  This is not good because 1) my company name doesn't fit on the form - it always gets truncated in a bad spot, and 2) the columns and fields on the canned form don't make any sense for my business.

Does anyone know how to customize this printed invoice form?  I can export every invoice to Word and use the customized template I have there, but with a lot of invoices this adds quite a bit of extra work, and the export process is also extremely slow (maybe that's a separate issue I need to deal with).

I realize not many people will have used this software yet, but I'm hoping there may be similarities with Microsoft Small Business Accounting 2006.  Can this be invoice form be changed, or did I get what I paid for?

Thanks!

Thanks gbshahaq!

They didn't have the exact solution, but it's a great resource that I didn't know about!  BTW:  If anyone else has the same problem, I kinda figured out a fix: back up your company, uninstall OA7 Express, re-download the program from Microsoft, reinstall the program, and restore your company.  I now have a different print dialog that allows me to choose a customized Word Template.  There's still the long pause when exporting (that now affects printing with the customized templates, too), but there's progress.  Thanks Again!
