Microsoft Office Accounting Part Four - Printing Reports

MicroPodCast – Podcasts for Microsoft Office Accounting Users. Useful bookkeeping, software, and business tips for MS Office Accounting users, consultants, and business owners.

Today's topic in our series of tips for MS Office accounting users is Printing Reports.

Running a report

To run a report from the reports area, select the appropriate sub-area and report, pick a date range and click the Display button.
You can also run reports from the Reports menu, however this won’t allow you to pick a date range until after the report has been displayed.
Finally you can run reports from the customers, vendors, employees, banking and online sales home pages.

Selecting a Date Range

You can change the date range for a report either by picking another range in the Date Range drop-down box on the report toolbar or by specifying specific From and To dates. When you change the date range the report recalculated based on the new date range. Depending on the amount of data in the database, the recalculation may take a few seconds.
Some reports a balance sheet reports and are based on a single date, rather than a range. You can change the reporting date either by picking another date in the As of drop-down or by specifying a specific date in the Date field.
