To be honest, I think those who gave you advice to buy QB, were wrong. I’m a big fan of QB and use QB everyday. However, you have demonstrated by your questions that putting QB in your hands is paramount to handing you a loaded gun and saying go at it.
If your first post, and subsequent posts, are on the up and up, you need to hire you a bean counter or get someone else to set you up with your bookkeeping. I don’t think you have enough basic knowledge to go it alone.
I may be way off base, but I think you must be toying with us.
If this is on the up and up, and you indeed did buy QB, go back and get a copy of QuickBooks for Dummies. You’re gonna need it.
