Adapting Ptree for a Water Service Company


C

Carla F.

I am trying to use peachtree 7 for a water service company I started
doing books for. They like to print meter readings on their invoices.
Is there a way to make peachtree do this? Previous, Current, Units
Used? I somehow don't think so, but I could be missing something.

Other than as a note on the invoice, that is.... I know how to create
notes.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Carla-I'm the secretary for a small water supply corp. Not sure of the size
of yours, but there are specialty billing programs for what you are trying
to do. PT or any other "canned" program won't do it. We use a specialty
billing program, it prints on postcard size (savews on postage). For the
accounting side, we use QuickBooks, which PT would work as well. If you are
interested, I can get you the name of the one we use. It used to be TAABS,
but I think it has changed. I also have a few links to other billing
software that it available. HTH

I've used the same approach as John, MS Access to enter the meter
reading then calculate the fee then enter that into
Peachtree. The difference is that I used DDE to punch the data into the
Peachtree sales journal. A little easier to do, but both ways
are valid solutions. The next thing I'm going to do is link the Access DB
to a PDA thus reducing the in office entries.

I had tried to use Peachtree Inventory but it just did not have the
flexibility to calculate fees from meter readings (it was a dead end)

Good luck
