The Microsoft Office Accounting Quick Start page makes fast work of getting into the most useful accounting tasks. You can also use the Quick Start page to incrementally add account information as you need it, instead of adding it all at once. As you can see in the following illustration, tasks are easy to find on the page.
Click directly to the task that you want
The links on the Quick Start page take you directly to where you need to be to complete a task. For example, if you click Create an invoice under Sell to Customers, Office Accounting takes you to the Invoice form where you can add the information to create a new invoice.
Add information as you go
In any form, if you need to add business information such as a new customer or item, you can do it quickly right from the form. For example, if you are creating a new invoice and need to add an item that doesn't already exist in your inventory, you don't have to close the Invoice form and create the new item. Instead, you can open a new Item form from within the Invoice form. When you save the new item, Accounting adds it directly to the invoice.
Find the Quick Start page later
The Quick Start page appears when you first start Accounting and continues to appear every time you start the program until you select the Don't show this page again check box at the bottom of the Quick Start page. If you want to open the Quick Start page again later, do one of the following:
On the File menu, click Quick Start.
On the toolbar, click Quick Start.
