    I'm reading my outlook book and it say you can use outlook for transactions for taxes at the end of the year. The thing is, that there would be about 20 to 30 different accounts. Do you guys think outlook would be good for this or should I use one of the other office products for this?

    Not sure how good outlook would be at doing taxes/transactions.

    Have you heard of sage www.sage.co.uk its supposed to be good for taxes etc.

    I'm sure if i suggested this to one of the accountants in the work he would have a hissy fit (you could rustle something up in Access to sort it all), we use sage line 50 in the work(although wouldn't recommend this for large companies)

    well I'm not wanting it to actuall do the taxes, but where we can keep track of what they spent in a month or like one of the compaines they buy parts though you have to spend so much in a quater to stay in a certain discount bracket. Like last month they were only a 100 dollars short for the bracket they were in. If he would have know that he could have stocked up on brakes, batteries, plugs. Inventory that sells fast, and they don't have to sit on to stay in that same braket. Or be able to print out all 12 month from each supplier or exp and hand it to his accountant. Am I making sense here?

    What's wrong for using Excel or Access for this sort of thing?

    Oh right.

    You could use Excel for stuff like that, or if you want to do a proper database then you could use access.

    Another one for accounting stuff thats a good one is Lotus Notes.

    We use Sage Line 500 at work. You could also send the accountant into a hissy fit by telling him Sage Line 50 you could buy in PC World :D.

    p.s. I just saw greenbruclee mention lotus notes.. he must now burn :twisted:

    I go with Access, there are templates within there, all you need is to customise it to suit your needs, try Excel aswell... I say these two first as these are already part of your Office suite, only if you are still not happy with what's there, then, go and look else where, as then you'll more likely be paying for some software, unless of course its Open Source or Free...
