Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

Use the Print dialog to specify one or more outputs (such as printer, file, FileCabinet CS) for printing checks (or sample checks in the Layout Designer), client invoices, reports, forms (or sample forms in the Layout Designer), AR deposit slips, or customer invoices and statements.

You can also define page numbering options when you print multiple reports or report profiles. Note, however, that this option is not available when printing from the Print Preview screen. When you choose to print from the Print Preview screen you can define page ranges across multiple reports that are displayed in the preview.

You can access the Print dialog from any of the following screens and dialogs.
