Can't change invoice form in Microsoft Accounting Express 2007?
Posted on 2007-04-04
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?
