About the book
Whether you're new to the latest version of the popular Sage Line 50 accounting software or an experienced user upgrading to version 2007, this book is a must. This title not only covers all the regular accounting modules but also the navigation bars and process dashboard interfaces recently introduced, plus the all new Report Designer unique to Line 50 2007. A handy source of information that will save you valuable time, Sage Line 50 2007 in easy steps is the perfect companion to help you keep accurate computerised accounts.
Using a friendly, informative approach this book first introduces Sage Line 50 to new users before showing the steps necessary to 'get started'. Once familiar with the 2007 Sage desktop views, it guides you through the process of setting up program defaults using the revised Configuration Editor and outlines the information you need to have to hand to speed up data entry and use of the program. The text is supported by a host of checklists and handy tips. Illustrated by a wealth of examples throughout, there are also useful reminders to assist both new and regular users of the program. Sage Line 50 2007 in easy steps is an excellent source of reference and as such it's ideal for the beginner. A total of fifteen chapters take you through every aspect of keeping computerised accounts, from setting up records and producing invoices to generating reports that will help you keep up-to-date accounts. You are also shown how to generate a VAT return, run month- and year-end procedures and use the reporting features to keep your business running smoothly. Furthermore, you are taken through the maintenance procedure for correcting data entry errors and even reminded how to make those all important data backups. For existing Sage Line 50 users, the Report Designer chapter even shows you how to import your current reports into the new 2007 report format. A real 'must have' for all Sage Line 50 2007 users.
